DNS and the IT Industry

When you’re working with technology, you’re always looking for the next best tool to make your job a little easier. That’s why IT admins need to be very critical and choosy about which DNS provider they go with. But what most don’t realize is speed isn’t everything. You need a reliable and battle-tested infrastructure; because speed doesn’t mean a thing when your site goes down.

  • Cut down on tickets by using Real-Time Statistics (RTS). You can see problems with resolution times as they happen, and in ten-minute intervals (that’s the smallest interval in the industry!). The best part? All this happens before your end-users even notice.
  • We know you’re the best troubleshooter you know, and we’re bringing you the tools you need to make it even easier. Get in-depth visibility from query to name server to the rack and back. You can also identify bottlenecks and packet loss, and even anticipate DDoS attacks—all by using Real-Time Statistics.
  • Another great way to cut down on tickets is having an airtight back up plan in case your site gets attacked or overloaded with traffic. In just a few clicks you can set up DNS Failover, which essentially create a copy of your site on another IP address. Using Peregrine Instant DNS Updates this change is instantaneous with no noticeable affect to end-users.
  • Need more? You can also combine DNS Failover with the Global Traffic Director and Round Robin. This allows you to balance the load of incoming traffic across multiple points of presence (PoP) or regions, in addition to using a backup IP address.
