DNSaaS is a critical component for the cloud. Designate is positioned to be the DNSaaS component for the OpenStack cloud. In this talk, we will discuss how eBay/PayPal has begun migrating from a proprietary DNSaaS solution to Designate with an existing large scale OpenStack cloud. The talk will cover our use cases and the Designate plugins and extensions written to address those use cases. We will talk about the tools written to assist with the migration of existing zones into Designate. We will discuss some of the technical obstacles we ran into and how those problems were addressed. Finally, we will also present the challenges remaining to ensure Designate is the sole solution for DNSaaS not only for our cloud, but for our enterprise.
Whether you have an existing OpenStack cloud or are considering implementing a cloud, there will be information presented in this talk that will be beneficial to you.
