AWS Route 53 is a Domain Name System (DNS) web service that is designed to enable users to route end users to different websites or applications within their web infrastructure. Route 53 allows users to easily configure DNS records including A, AAAA, CNAME, MX and other types of records.
DHCP Options Sets on the other hand is a function of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) that provides the ability to quickly access network resources across multiple instances of Amazon EC2. DHCP Options Sets gives you the flexibility to configure DHCP options such as domain name, DNS servers, NIS servers, and NTP servers in your instance. It also allows users to configure up to 16 DHCP options.
Both Amazon Route 53 and DHCP Options Sets are services that help users to enable end-users to access websites and network resources efficiently. However, there are a few key differences between the two. Route 53 is primarily used to configure DNS records and to route the end-user to the correct website or application. DHCP Options Sets is primarily used to configure DHCP options such as assigning specific IP addresses, domain name, DNS servers, NIS servers, and NTP servers. They both work together in tandem to enable efficient and proper routing of end-users to websites and network resources.
