DNS & Osama Bin Laden: What Do They Have In Common?
When a major news story like the death of Osama bin Laden breaks, the last thing on your mind is probably DNS…that is, until the website you are trying to access has come to an anxiety-inducing halt.
When traffic unexpectedly spiked, prepared websites like Twitter (a client on the DynECT Platform) were busy serving out over 4,000 tweets per second without flinching. Unfortunately, there were other not-so-prepared websites experiencing load times up to six times slower than normal, with some even crashing under the heavy weight of requests.
The lesson here? Don’t take risks with your critical Internet infrastructure. Dyn offers rock-solid advanced solutions like Active Failover, Traffic Management (GSLB), and CNAME Load Balancing with CDN Manager. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Uptime is the Bottom Line.
Read reviews from clients like Bizo and CNBC.com who sped up and saved their uptime using advanced solutions on the DynECT Platform.

‘Tis The Season — For Events
We aren’t decking the halls, but we may be coming to a city near you and that’s reason enough to be jolly.
South by Southwest was a great kickoff to event season, but we are just getting started on our grand tour. We may be tech geeks, but we do know how to have a good time and maybe talk a little business in there somewhere too.
Keep up-to-date on where we’ll be and be sure to schedule some time to interact with us!
