GloboDNS is a Ruby on Rails application designed to manage domain name services based on Bind with a RESTful API and using MySQL as persistent storage backend. The project is an adaptation of PowerDNS-on-rails developed by Kenneth Kalmer plus some features like UI, job queue and Bind specific importation script.
The GloboDNS was designed to work with Bind in a passive way. Once you've configured the primary and slaves servers, database and executed the first importation of your records, all work is done between the application and the DB . Then all files are exported via Rsync tool to the Bind server(s) and any command is issued with Rndc utility.

With multiple levels of privilege, we can ensure that a specific user is able to perform only specific tasks.
All actions are validated to prevent bad records or other undesirable human mistakes.
The UI provides a simplier way to manage the service.
RESTful architecture Multi-user with groups of privilege Asychronous and synchronous tasks modes Conversion and import tools Zone/Record Templates Full audit record of all changes Macros for easy bulk updating of domains Support for Bind MASTER, NATIVE & SLAVE record types
