Experts, i have a requirement and wanted to find a tool that will be helpful for me.
We have a inhouse tool, that will help developers request/lease a VM for a short duration of time. When the VM is assigned, i send the developer an email with details of the VM and the application details. I currently use xip.io to send a fully qualified DNS name. Something like this
This works well, but the feedback that i got from my developers is ,
The url is very hard to remember Everytime is request for a VM i get a new URL and i cant bookmark it. it keeps changing everytime.
I think their concern is valid. One idea to solve this is to create a per defined DNS names with username in it like
where prajan is the username. So everytime i request for a vm, i need to programmatically modify IP that is associated with this domain name in my dns server. We are using AWS now.
Is there a better way to handle this requirement?
