General availability: Azure DNS
Published date: 26 September, 2016
We are announcing the general availability release of Azure DNS. The service is offered with a 99.99% availability SLA and is covered by Azure Support. General availability pricing will take effect from November 1, 2016.
Azure DNS enables Azure customers to host their DNS domains in Azure and manage their DNS records by using the same credentials, APIs, tools, billing, and support as other Azure services. Azure DNS supports all common DNS record types (A, AAAA, CNAME, MX, NS, PTR, SOA, SRV and TXT) and uses a global network of name servers. So it provides exceptionally high availability, even in the event of a multiple-region failure or network partitioning. DNS queries are answered by the closest available DNS server for the fastest query performance.
