When deploying Valohai resources to your cloud subscription, you will need a
queue_address. That is a DNS record pointing to the public IP of your queue machine. It is typically something like
<your-company>.vqueue.net. If you want to use your own domain name instead of the
vqueue.net(this is a Valohai owned domain name) and define the DNS record yourself that is also possible.
In AWS you can use their Route 53 service to create DNS records.
- You will need to have at least one registered domain name. Please see AWS documentation on how to do that: Registering a new domain
To add the DNS record navigate to the Route 53 page in your AWS console. Click on the link saying "Hosted zones" either from the side menu or under "DNS management". If you have registered several domain names, you can now choose under which of them you want to create the record.
Under the domain name you can see a list of all the created DNS records. You can also create a new one by clicking on the "Create record" button. This will open a menu as shown below. Note that instead of vqueue.net you will of course have your own domain name.
- Record name: choose a name for the record, e.g.
- Value: the public IP of the queue machine
You can leave everything else as is.
Once you have created the record, send it to your Valohai contact so that they can finalize the installation.
