Building a new DNS on a world class CDN
We recently introduced Verizon ROUTE, our globally distributed DNS (Domain Name System) service.
In a recent interview conducted at Velocity Conference 2013 in NYC — Ted Middleton, our VP of Product Management, explains:
- Why Verizon Digital Media Services introduced a secure, high-performance DNS service
- How DNS is integrated into Verizon’s CDN offering and pricing
Running one of the world’s busiest CDNs means also building a secure, high-performance DNS service, since “DNS is instrumental in operating a global network”, Ted explains:
With Verizon ROUTE, customers can manage primary and secondary DNS. Over the years we’ve learned a lot about how to accelerate name look-ups and delivery, which led to a DNS service which is “layered out with a sophisticated, enterprise-class traffic management, policy-based routing”, as Ted points out.
