The Anycast network of RcodeZero DNS has been extended: New nodes in Melbourne (Australia), Tampere (Finland) and Lisbon (Portugal) are available for TLD customers. Secondary customers benefit from newly added nodes in Melbourne, Madrid, Tampere, Lisbon and Tokyo.
The DNS (Domain Name System) is the basis for all services on the internet. It is necessary for all domain-based services to find the IP address of the relevant server. This includes for example the website of your company, the webshop, e-mail communication or hostnames for internal services (e.g. SAP, databases, etc.).
The expansion of the RcodeZero DNS Anycast network continues steadily. In the past few months, numerous additional locations have been added. For TLD customers new nodes are now available in Atlanta, Ljubljana, Mumbai, Seoul and Stockholm. For Secondary customers additional locations have been established in Ljubljana and Mumbai.
Our Head of Operations Klaus Darilion and Christian Schöpp, Product Owner of our anycast service RcodeZero DNS, give tips in the article of The Register, why it makes sense to outsource the DNS infrastructure to protect against DDoS attacks.
For TLD operators, permanent availability, optimal performance, short response times and maximum protection of the DNS infrastructure are of the highest priority. To guarantee this, Anycast technology has become industry standard and almost every TLD has one or more Anycast providers.
