> I did not find any reference to a previous discussion on this topic. I would like to see if there is any interest in considering splitting DNS from Nova into its own service or into Quantum. I am aware of the nova-dns service developed by Grid Dynamics, and the current Nova implementation, and they would be a good base.
> I believe that there is value in linking more closely IP address Management, DHCP and DNS provisioning which are, today, in Quantum. This would also allow for opening the door for a more generic purpose DNS as a Service capability, where tenants may even manage DNS resources that are not in the realm hosted and managed by openstack.
> If there is support, we are willing to make this happen or collaborate with any project currently working on something similar.

I think this is a good summit session. We have at least three
different groups that have DNS implementations.
