How Programmatic DNS Propels Global Application Distribution

DNS geo routing is a commonly used technique for connecting users to the closest web site or application point of presence. Most DNS services offer geo routing but not all are created equal. What they do and how they do it matters for performance and manageability. In addition,geo routing alone may not deliver the performance targets your business needs.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How georouting works on different DNS providers and what you should look for.
  • Geo-targeting vs Geo-fencing.
  • Why georouting often does not provide the best response and how to know if that is impacting your business.
  • How you can improve application performance by combining georouting with active traffic steering on the NS1 platform.

Recommended New Approach to Improve Digital Application Performance

Online applications and services, from ecommerce to government services, increasingly address a global audience. These services require a globally-distributed architecture that is optimized to deliver a high-quality user experience. Traffic optimization solutions based on managed DNS services are a critical component of such distributed architecture. They offer an efficient method for optimizing globally-distributed architectures for both end-user performance and cost.

When these optimization services are able to make traffic management decisions based on real-time performance analytics, they become immensely more valuable and effective. They allow application owners to build traffic optimization policies that are based on real-time network conditions, rather than purely static conditions like geography. Combining real-time performance data with cost metrics enables application services to be optimized for performance and cost.

This white paper examines why operators of online services should leverage managed traffic optimization services that use a combination of real-time data feeds, including real user measurements (RUM), active and passive monitoring, and location-based information. It briefly reviews NS1’s Pulsar RUM analytics and Managed DNS traffic management platform.

Multi-CDN Made Easy Webinar

Many enterprises are finding it increasingly difficult to deliver a consistently high quality end user experience to a global online audience using a single Content Delivery Network (CDN). CDN providers have different strengths and weaknesses so it is unsurprising when a single provider does not adequately address the needs of a global online organization.

The good news is there are plenty of CDN providers to choose from, and by leveraging the right combination of providers, enterprises can simultaneously improve end user quality of experience while lowering costs. The means to achieve this goal is based on the ability to intelligently steer traffic to the right CDN at the right time.

Join our live hands-on webinar to learn how to plan, implement, and test a multi-CDN strategy that's right for your organization.

Key Reasons For Using an Independent DNS Provider

Many cloud and CDN providers also offer in-house managed DNS services. If you are hosting your content or applications with these providers, you might use their DNS service without much thought. However, this can limit your ability to deliver the performance and customer experience your business needs.

In this webinar you will learn when and why you should use an independent DNS provider.
