Amazon Route 53 is a very highly available and scalable cloud Domain Name System(DNS) web service which is specifically designed to provide developers and business owners a very reliable and cost-efficient way to route end users to the Web Applications.

Amazon Route 53 performs three main functions:

  1. Domain registration
  2. DNS service
  3. Health checking

Domain Registration: Amazon Route 53 lets us register domain names, such as ‘www.example.com’.

DNS Service: Amazon Route 53 translates the domain names like above into IP addresses like ‘192.0.2.1’. It responds to DNS queries using a global network of authorative DNS servers which helps in reducing latency.


The race for leadership in public cloud computing is a fierce: Amazon Web Services(AWS) vs. Microsoft Azure vs. Google Cloud Platform(GCP). Clearly these three top cloud companies hold a commanding lead in the infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) markets.

AWS is particularly dominant. According to report from Synergy Research Group, in 2020, “Amazon growth continued to closely mirror overall market growth so it maintained its 33% share of the worldwide [cloud] market. …

FC SAN provides a high-performance infrastructure for the movement of localized data. Organizations are now looking for ways to transport data over a long distance between their SANs present at multiple geographic locations. One of the best ways to achieve this goal is to interconnect geographically distanced SANs through reliable and high-speed links. This approach consists of transporting the FC block data through the IP infrastructure. FCIP is a tunneling protocol that helps distributed FC SANs to be interconnected over the existing IP-based networks.

FCIP is extensively used in disaster recovery implementations in which data is duplicated to the storage…
