Simplify DNS Management in a Multi-Account Environment With Route 53 Resolver

Simplify DNS management in a multi-account environment with Route 53 Resolver

In a previous post, I showed you a solution to implement central DNS in a multi-account environment that simplified DNS management by reducing the number of servers and forwarders you needed when implementing cross-account and AWS-to-on-premises domain resolution. With the release of the Amazon Route 53 Resolver service, you now have access to a native conditional forwarder that will simplify hybrid DNS resolution even more. In this post, I’ll show you a modernized solution to centralize DNS management in a multi-account environment by using Route 53 Resolver.

This solution allows you to resolve domains across multiple accounts and between workloads running on AWS and on-premises without the need to run a domain controller in AWS.
