"Today's internet-dependent business landscape demands frequent system changes, higher throughput and increased reliability. If your new features and fixes do not hit the digital market quickly, user experience, customer retention and revenue all take a hit. DNS however, is a tool that can be used to both mitigate problems and optimize the performance and delivery of these systems. Read the latest O'Reilly book to understand how the DevOps approach combined with the fundamentals of DNS can:
• Use DNS as a means of distribution, deployment and high-availability
• Mitigate failure and minimize risk
• Improve system reliability and management

"Most organizations have invested in improving the performance and resiliency of their on-premise Global Load Balancing (GLB) capabilities, but very few organizations are able to achieve the level of performance and high availability that a cloud-based anycast DNS network can offer.
Enterprises across the globe have begun complementing their existing GLB with a DNS service that operates in an always-on manner and can effectively manage and balance internet traffic through intelligent steering capabilities.

• Maintaining availability - through global and regional load balancing
• Improving digital experience in a hybrid cloud environment
• Increasing performance and reliability through a secondary DNS solution
"Global DNS performance and availability are critical to business continuity, security and end-user experience. With online applications, content, data and services often scattered across the internet and housed in your own DCs, your CDN or in your cloud instances; it’s more important than ever to have a robust, redundant DNS solution making sure your assets get delivered as quickly and reliably as possible.
This whitepaper reviews the business advantages of implementing a high availability DNS architecture using redundant DNS services. You will learn:
• The critical role DNS plays in the user experience
• The failure and outage risks of relying on a single DNS solution
• The major resiliency and performance differences between unicast vs anycast addressing
• Criteria for evaluating a managed DNS service provider
"Every user’s first interaction with your website begins with a series of DNS queries. The Domain Name System or DNS is a distributed internet database that maps human-readable names to IP addresses, ensuring users reach the correct online asset (website, application, etc) efficiently. Knowing the complexities and best practices of this layer of your online infrastructure will help your organization build redundancy, improve end-user performance and establish a top notch DR plan.

While some distributed enterprises look to the cloud to reduce server sprawl and centralize operations, in many cases, the cloud simply isn’t feasible. Maybe the offices are in remote locations with limited Internet service or low-bandwidth connectivity causes issues such as latency and availability. Download the solutions brief to discover why VCE VxRail hyper-converged appliances from Dell EMC are ideal for consolidating multiple applications in a remote location onto a single, high-performance and high-availability platform that’s easy to deploy and manage.
The Internet of Things (IoT) presents an opportunity to collect real-time information about every physical operation of a business. From the temperature of equipment to the performance of a fleet of wind turbines, IoT sensors can deliver this information in real time. There is tremendous opportunity for those businesses that can convert raw IoT data into business insights, and the key to doing so lies within effective data analytics.
To research the current state of IoT analytics, Blue Hill Research conducted deep qualitative interviews with three organizations that invested significant time and resources into their own IoT analytics initiatives. By distilling key themes and lessons learned from peer organizations, Blue Hill Research offers our analysis so that business decision makers can ultimately make informed investment decisions about the future of their IoT analytics projects.

Global DNS performance and availability are critical to user experience. According to Gartner, “DNS is mission-critical to all organizations that connect to the internet. DNS failure or poor performance leads to applications, data and content becoming unavailable, causing user frustration, lost sales and business reputation damage.” But many businesses still rely on a single, often in-house DNS solution that lacks global scale and resiliency.
This white paper reviews the business advantages of implementing a high availability DNS architecture using redundant DNS services. You will learn:
- The critical role DNS plays in the user experience.
- The risks of relying solely on a single DNS solution.
- The added performance and reliability benefits of a high availability DNS architecture with a redundant managed DNS service.
- Criteria for evaluating a managed DNS service provider.
We all know that hybrid cloud adoption is exploding, with 80% of enterprises having at least some infrastructure in the cloud. This growth includes increased use of the internet to deliver applications, sites and services to employees, partners and customers. These companies need an internet performance management (IPM) strategy to ensure those services reach users effectively, starting with DNS.
Join Trip Kucera and Dyn VP, Gary Sloper, as they discuss the impact of cloud and internet infrastructure across the cloud adoption lifecycle. Key focus points include:
• Optimizing round trip times and latency, from time to first byte, to internet routing
• Understanding and comparing cloud service providers
• Protecting your service from route hijacks, DDoS attacks and mitigating vulnerabilities.

Data center administrators face a significant challenge: They need to secure the data center without compromising the performance and functionality that new data center environments enable. Many are looking to secure the data center using solutions designed for the Internet edge, but these solutions are not enough. The data center has unique requirements around provisioning, performance, virtualization, applications, and traffic that Internet-edge security devices are simply not designed to address.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is connecting our world in ways that were unimaginable 10 years ago—collecting data on everything we do and using it to streamline our daily activities. In doing so, IoT is changing the way that consumers think about service. Service organizations must be prepared to support these new customer expectations to ensure continued satisfaction to strengthen and foster loyalty.
Additionally, IoT is making its way into the enterprise, especially among organizations in industries like utilities, oil and gas, medical devices, manufacturing and telecommunications. Connected devices enable more efficient processes for maintenance and repair by constantly providing information on machines’ performance, environmental conditions, and possible failures. For example, a connected washing machine in a customer’s home could automatically send out an error report to the manufacturer when it experiences a failure. This is where field service management comes in.

The client had an extensive global multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) network with over 30 Gbps of bandwidth. However, the client was experiencing bandwidth growth of >30% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) and foresaw increasing demands for multi-media applications, data center to data center traffic, and cloud solution usage to support its business units and global workforce. It became crucial for the client to re-architect their
current network to support growth and provide a globally consistent user experience at lower cost. With 40% of their WAN traffic being http internet traffic, they needed regional internet
service provider (ISP) breakouts.
The client needed a lower cost/MB high capacity WAN backbone for better application performance and cloud optimization. Their network needed to be scalable to poise them for anticipated growth and offer improved site connectivity options.
