We believe that having zero downtime is not only expected in the DNS business, but required.
RESTON, VA (PRWEB) November 05, 2014
DNS Made Easy, the world leader in IP Anycast DNS services, is launching an initiative to help show companies how to keep their services online, even though some of some of their servers are not. With the use of the DNS Failover service of DNS Made Easy companies can create a competitive advantage. Creating a competitive advantage means having a well-managed technology system that covers for unexpected outages. This means integrating existing knowledge, proven technology management processes and quality control to develop solutions that give businesses what it needs: a network that works.
"At DNS Made Easy, we created the Elite Resolution Platform, which is a multi-tiered framework that creates localized server redundancy and scalability within the enterprise IP Anycast server constellation," said Steven Job, president of DNS Made Easy. "The localized redundancy provided by the Elite Resolution Platform creates redundant servers within every cluster of servers that are constantly updated through a proprietary multi-tiered zone consistency system we call Peregrine Instant DNS updates."
These servers will automatically begin responding to queries if query load increases or in the unlikely event that a server experiences a catastrophic failure. The Elite Resolution Services platform enables automatic contingencies such that multiple sites can experience catastrophic outages and all of the remaining sites will smoothly take over and share the query load of the down site(s).
This proprietary platform is implemented at the core of the DNS Made Easy network and guarantees that queries are always answered locally on the name server cluster nearest to the querying client, which is usually the resolving name server.
While Fort Knox wasn’t built in a day and didn’t become one of the most secure places in the world by hiding their gold outside its walls, DNS Made Easy has replicated those efforts in spending millions of dollars and decades securing its network.
Companies who use DNS Made Easy’s services have access to:
- Proprietary and open source firewall and intrusion detection services on the DNS services
- Proprietary and open source DDoS mitigation devices used to help clean the DNS services
- Heavily enforced employee access control and information disclosure policies
- Remote traffic black-holing and bandwidth capacity agreements with upstream providers
- Distributed infrastructure monitoring utilizing internal and third party monitoring services
- Automated zone comparison on all DNS servers
DNS Made Easy operates Internet backbones with the largest and most reliable data providers in the business. Our company provides answers to about 8 billion DNS request each day, all with complete redundancy.
“We believe that having zero downtime is not only expected in the DNS business, but required,” Job said. “Any down time is money lost and that’s unacceptable.”
