[Pdns-users] Question about Powerdns remote database backend best practices

Hi there,

Recently I’m trying out PowerDNS, and I’m pretty enjoy the flexibility and
abundant API and Powedns admin UI compared to our regular bind deployment.
I’m currently using a remote MySQL as backend to serve the request, and as
recommended by the wiki, I use IP to avoid the Chicken-Egg problem when
using DNS.

However, one thing I’m wondering is that how to make this ip based remote
backend solution more production ready. From what I have read on many
tutorials online, most of the MySQL database are set up locally, which I
think is good for POC, but local is not scalable and easy to manage when
database entries scale up. However, if we use ip based solution, normal
corp database deployment will have master and slave, and it is hard to
manage if we hardcode an ip, which is subject to change from master to
slave or vice versa, in the config.

Any suggestion or comment is welcomed. Thanks in advance.

Best regards.
