A latest report on GoDaddy’s recent DNS outage report mandated me to review the world class DNS offering by NetScaler. While there are several advance feature that NetScaler offers on DNS, following are the three key items that puts NetScaler way above any competition:
- Unlike competition, NetScaler DNS strategy is based on proven, built-in and hardened BIND technology. The built-in technology makes the appliance resistant to many security risks and attacks that the open source software stack [used by competition] may be vulnerable to.
- NetScaler platforms considerably minimize DNS latency with a scalable architecture that handles 18 million responses/second – a performance level far outpacing any other ADC in market.
- ActionAnalytics support for DNS enables administrators to optimize DNS policy controls adaptively based on the real-time state of a DNS service.
