Traditional Domain Name System (DNS) was built for a different time: before the public cloud, CDNs, and hybrid-IT technologies were in common use. In today's cloud environment, a new set of problems has arisen that require a new design. Performance, availability, measurability, and reporting are now the drivers for a new DNS—a predictive DNS.
Predictive DNS was built for modern enterprises who employ micro-services and ephemeral infrastructures, resulting in industry leading availability and latency for authoritative DNS. A predictive DNS leverages machine-learning to optimize performance across today’s hybrid cloud infrastructure.
