NS1, the leader in next-generation DNS and application traffic management solutions, announced its “At Home with NS1” program, which includes free white-glove migration services and some contract relief to organizations affected by changes to Oracle Dyn and Verisign DNS Services and want to unlock the performance, automation and scalability of NS1’s modern, API-first DNS solutions.
Enterprise and internet infrastructure continue to grow in complexity as companies embrace dynamic and distributed approaches that leverage multiple clouds or content delivery networks, edge computing and serverless platforms. DNS is the first stop for all application traffic and a critical component of modern application development and delivery.
Older DNS systems simply weren’t designed for this complexity or are increasingly bolted into single-vendor solution stacks that remove choice and flexibility. With limited traffic management options and a lack of automation features, outdated DNS leads to deployment delays, inconsistent performance or failures of critical application infrastructure.
NS1 now offers free and seamless migration for these companies looking to adopt next-generation DNS that offers the automation, scalability and velocity demanded by modern infrastructure.
As part of NS1’s white-glove migrations services, customers receive best-in-class support with a dedicated customer success manager that will work side-by-side to develop and execute a custom plan. In a recent study, 100% of enterprises reported that they were completely satisfied with NS1’s support services. Customers may also receive some contract commitment relief.
“Industry consolidation, like Oracle’s acquisition of Dyn and Neustar’s acquisition of Verisign security services customers, serves as a key opportunity for enterprises to reevaluate their traffic management approach and replace outdated legacy solutions with a high-velocity, API-first DNS that aligns with modernization strategies,” said Brian Zeman, chief operating officer for NS1.
“As an independent DNS provider, NS1 solutions are ideal for complex, distributed architecture, such as multi- and hybrid cloud or edge networks. With our vendor-agnostic solutions, customers not only avoid lock-in but also benefit from our dynamic, automated routing solutions that help control costs and accelerate performance.”
NS1’s user-friendly portal and API streamline and accelerate standard zone file imports, and a team of experts is available to help build custom filter chains to address complex and dynamic routing use cases.
Customers also receive free training, a host of resources to help teams get the most out of advanced traffic management solutions, and consistent access to NS1 experts through convenient collaboration tools like Slack.
Once migrated, NS1 customers gain the many benefits of modern DNS along with NS1’s multifaceted approach to DNS security, including DDoS protection, DNSSEC that doesn’t compromise functionality, and sophisticated monitoring, detection and filtering capabilities at every level of the protocol stack.
“Whether receiving breaking news alerts, or browsing the best content and highlights for their favorite teams, our users mandate speed and quality. Switching to NS1 enabled us to boost performance, add redundancy and prepare for future growth of our user base. The process of migrating to NS1 was painless and timely as a result of its fast technology and proactive customer success team,” said Dave Marks, vice president, engineering, Bleacher Report.
