In this hands-on lab, we work through various options available for configuring DNS. The first section of the lab entails configuring DNS within a Virtual Private Cloud, which involves working with AWS Route 53. Route 53 is the perfect tool for configuring DNS within an AWS environment and specifically for a VPC. The second part of the lab presents hybrid scenarios where on-premises servers are still part of the compute environment, and we'll have to configure a hybrid environment with DNS. Finally, we'll dive into a scenario where we've got to configure a completely external DNS server, utilizing just AWS and Route 53. Ultimately, we will have covered configuring DNS for any scenario someone may encounter in the real world.
