Spotify’s Love/Hate Relationship with DNS

Spotify has a history of loving “boring” technologies. It’s not that often people talk about DNS; when they do, it’s usually to complain, or when a major outage happens. Otherwise, DNS is initially set up – probably with a 3rd party provider – and then mostly forgotten about. But it’s because DNS is boring that Spotify loves it so much. DNS provides a stable and widely-known query interface, free caching, and service discovery.

This talk will walk through how Spotify has designed and currently manages DNS infrastructure and the future of the lovably boring technology at Spotify.
