With Amazon Route 53 Traffic Flow, the cloud provider introduced a traffic management service that lets you control how your end-users are routed to your application’s endpoints. (Route 53 is Amazon’s DNS and domain registration service.)
You can build your JSON policies for a wide range of routing scenarios using a visual flowchart editor in the Amazon Route 53 console. A versioning feature allows you to maintain a history of changes to your routing policies, and easily roll back to a previous policy version (in the Console or via API).
With Amazon Route 53 Traffic Flow, your costs are influenced by two factors:
- the number of Amazon Route 53 Traffic Flow policies you use to manage traffic routing and
- the number of queries that the Amazon Route 53 DNS service answers for each of your domains.
Now all Amazon has to do is lift Cloudfront’s current restriction of 2048-bit on SSL certs.
