Constellix DNS, a provider of IP Anycast enterprise DNS services, is now offering new integrations with “top cloud providers” for Secondary DNS services. Secondary DNS is a way to improve DNS performance and reliability for domains.
Clients’ queries are answered across two networks, which doubles redundancy and actually can improve query resolution times. However, in the past this method has proven both difficult to implement and maintain, according to Constellix, because administrators had to keep configurations for both providers consistent.
“Our new integrations will break down the barriers that previously made having multiple DNS providers time consuming and expensive,” said Steven Job, President of Constellix. “We make Secondary DNS simple, with instant updates with these four major cloud DNS providers.”
Over the past few months, the Constellix team has been monitoring and evaluating the performance of the top cloud-based DNS providers. In the end, the team was able to narrow down the list to the top four that offered both optimal performance and diversity of services.
The Constellix Secondary DNS integration is currently available for the following providers:
- Amazon Route 53
- Google Cloud
- Microsoft Azure
- DNS Made Easy
Once a user sets up the Secondary DNS integration with their chosen provider, all future updates will take place automatically. Even clients with regional routing configurations would be able to enjoy a “completely seamless” experience between their two providers.
“A recent study reports that five percent of the Alexa top 100 domains have added a second DNS provider in the month following the infamous Dyn outage,” said Mr. Job. “Over the past few months our clients have shared with us their concerns and hesitations about adding a Secondary provider. We hope our new integrations will alleviate these issues and prove an efficient way to ensure 100% uptime.”
Constellix is a subsidiary of Tiggee, the creators of DNS Made Easy. The Constellix GeoDNS platform would offer a “powerful and precise” DNS query management, engineered for the cloud. The platform is fully integrated with Constellix Sonar, which offers a range of advanced monitoring features and intelligent analytics tools.
