comment Questions about AWS auto scaling and load balancing
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because ServerFault isn't a replacement for reading the AWS documentation.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Server_Name_Indication perhaps, if you can ditch WinXP users.

comment Large scale network routing
It belongs as a Google search query and/or a browser of Wikipedia's various pages on networking concepts. ServerFault is basically intended for folks who already know the basics.

comment Large scale network routing
Did you read the anycast article? A single IP can correspond to many potential recipients (load balancers, for example), including geographically disparate ones. The article even mentions DNS as a specific example of something that uses it.

comment Openstack deployed on a single server - production ready
Most people would define "single server" to be neither production-ready nor cloud-like.

comment Amazon EC2 Security Group inbound rule with a dynamic IP
You do have to worry about a targeted attack on your local computer to grab the key file, but if you're not running something that deals with healthcare/credit-card/government data the chances of that are probably minimal.

comment What would be a less-known SSL certificate attribute to look out for?
@Crono Many of the more expensive providers are just trolling for suckers and get most of their business via much cheaper resellers. Comodo sells SSL certificates for $80ish, but Namecheap is a Comodo reseller that sells those same certificates for $8ish.

comment How best way to rsync from aws s3 to gcloud?
If you have lots of files in S3 this is going to be very slow no matter what.

comment How to uninstall programs from /usr/local/bin?
Big +1 for the warning. I once symlinked Python 3 over Python 2 and the entire server was basically screwed. Thankfully it was a testing VM...

comment Local IIS webpage address is IP:PORT - How can i have it set to something more human readable, like teehut.com, on my local network?
DNS handles the teehut.com -> 192.168.2.150 conversion. DNS doesn't touch ports at all.

comment Why does port 6379 need to be opened on the security group for elasticache?
ElastiCache has security groups because just like any other set of servers you might want to limit who has access to it. You might be running several apps in your AWS account and only want to let one app's servers access the cache. You might want to limit access just to a PHP tier and not let your database tier have access.

comment RDS slave (read replica) not replication
@FrontierPsycho You can promote a replica to master, but I don't think you can promote a replica to another replica's spot. We use DNS for this - our master is db.internal.example.com, our read-replica is read-db.internal.example.com, so switching replicas is just a Route53 record change.

comment Root domain to elb
@derpy The RFCs were written long, long before cloud hosts like Amazon became popular, hence the need for workarounds like non-standard ALIAS records. Route53, being an Amazon product, can hook into their back-end systems to find the real IP of an ELB in a way other systems can't do as easily, hence why it's easier to do this from within the AWS ecosystem.

comment Root domain to elb
"So Amazon doesn't let you point a base domain towards an elb." You've got that backwards. The RFCs don't let you do it. Amazon does let you do it, with Route53 and an ALIAS record.
