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.
The RcodeZero DNS Anycast service provides optimal load balancing with more than 40 locations worldwide. In the following text, we reveal why placing the locations correctly is a challenge, why the traffic hubs may not be as expected, and why sending out the first servers was so nerve wracking.
On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of our Anycast service RcodeZero DNS, Klaus Darilion (Head of Operations) reports in an interview with the British IT news site "The Register" about the origin and development of our service.
