Instead of buying expensive and complicated L2 appliances, you may leverage a 30-year consolidated, cheap technology in order to provide geographical redundancy.

 

We wrote from scratch our own DNSaaS distributed solution to allow you to:

  • Configure standard SOA, NS, A, MX, TXT, etc. records

  • Configure smart records to provide weighted load balancing across different instances or even regions

  • Configure smart records to provide HA (primary/secondary) automated failover and rollback across different instances or even regions

  • Configure smart records to provide GeoDNS across different instances or even regions, and address your users to specific IPs based upon their position on the Internet, using standard Anycast and BGP

 

Moreover, you can define multiple health checks to continuously monitor the health state of your services or instances, and trigger timely DNS reconfiguration when a user-defined fault is detected.
