Flexibly Harnessing Multi-Cloud Networks Using DNS

> DNS Routing
In a multi-path network, if you try to divert traffic based on DNS, this means it's technically not possible achievable as routing is done based on IP layer. In a multi-site network with hybrid WAN, if you try to set static route based on DNS in order to direct traffic to specific cloud application services like dropbox or youtube from branch network through broadband lines, and divert it through private lines in case all broadband lines fail, it is not possible either. This can be done as network administrators can probably input the rules either one by one, or with a database of IP addresses. But adding those rules can be time-consuming and doesn't guarantee that the services get routed correctly.

The Q-Balancer DNS Routing is the solution to this requirement as it has the ability to have DNS queries intercepted and static IP routing rules added dynamically on demand when the requests arise. The feature of DNS Routing enables business to automate those static routes based on DNS. Besides, the DNS Routing can be statically configured along with policy-based routing, load balancing, and QoS. This optionally provides business with the ability to efficiently and flexibly control the multi-cloud network.
