Amazon’s Route53 Traffic Flow product enables clients to route traffic according to different preferences, such as Round Robin, latency based routing or Geo DNS. All types come with DNS failover.

Amazon provides a 100% available SLA for Route53, meaning that the company warrants that the service is up and running all the time, every month.
