Your CDN & Managed DNS: Better Together

There are certain things that are just better together: cookies and milk, peanut butter and jelly, and CDNs and Managed DNS, just to name a few. If you’re not familiar with that last classic pairing, you should be. Pairing a managed DNS solution with your CDN provides your website with extra performance, reliability, and flexibility.

Purchasing a CDN is a huge investment and without managed DNS, you might as well be throwing that investment away. If your DNS goes down, it doesn’t matter how well your CDN is performing; no one will be able to access your website.

Diversity is the Best Defense

Diversity Is The Best Defense

You’ve heard it before: “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.”

On the web, that is especially important. Running your website from a single data center opens you up to all kinds of potential risks. One freak accident, a storm, or a power outage and you’re down for the count. Even just a small issue that causes lag time on your site can frustrate customers and make them want to leave your website – ultimately costing your business big bucks.

Human Bias

Human Confirmation Bias In Monitoring Of Systems

Here in the operations group at Dyn we like to consider the “layer 8 factors” (the 8th layer being “the human layer” of the OSI model) when designing and implementing systems. We do our best to make sure that our systems help expose and reason through these factors as best as possible. As engineers, we seek to apply “scientific knowledge, mathematics, and ingenuity to develop solutions to technical problems.” The key word, however, is “seek.”

Technology may be immune to bias and heuristics, however the humans who implement solutions are not. And, even if we don’t like to admit it, we’re all human and those biases often impair our ability to apply the scientific method and come to proper conclusions.

What You Need To Know About Canada’s SPAM Legislation

As you may have heard, Canada’s anti-spam legislation (CASL) is now in effect, but what does this mean in plain English?

Canada is actually a little late to the party with putting anti-spam legislation in place. Passed in 2010, and effective July 2014, this is well behind many other countries. The US and Australia put their legislations in place back in 2003, for example.
