Objective

Supports for DNS names for VMs in EGI Federated cloud are recently required by many VOs. The aim of this task is to provide Dynamic DNS support for VMs in EGI Federated Clouds. Users can register their chosen meaningful and memorable DNS host names in given domains (e.g. my-server.vo-name.egi.eu) and assign to public IPs of their servers hosted in EGI Federated Cloud. By using Dynamic DNS, users can host services in EGI Federated Cloud with their meaningful server names, can freely move VMs from sites to sites without modifying server/client configurations (federated approach), can request valid server certificates in advance (critical for security)and many other advantages.
