Elastic Load Balancing is an awesome service that handles load balancing of the traffic to your instances very well. An ELB charges a small amount for every hour running, pretty much like a T2.small instance (as of time of writing).This is dirty-cheap when you have tens or thousands of instances behind it, but for 1-2 T2instances it might seem overkill.In no event shall Cruto, Microsoft, its authors, or anyone else involved in the creation, production, or delivery of the scripts be liable for any damages whatsoever (including, without limitation, damages for loss of business profits, business interruption,loss of business information, or other pecuniary loss) arising out of the use of or inability to use the sample scripts or documentation, even if Microsoft has been advised of the possibility of such damages.In this small tutorial I provide a code snippet that allows you to update a record set in Route53 with the public IP of an EC2 instance programmatically.Most of them take advantage of Elastic IPs and Route53 API to programmatically update record sets.
The entire risk arising out of the use or performance of the sample scripts and documentation remains with you.
Because they are organized into functional topics and kept very short, none of the examples can stand alone. A minimum program would need to use a combination of the "Opening", "Displaying" and "Closing" topics.
