These news headlines over the past few months are a great sign for the overall Internet Performance landscape. We’ve always been huge supporters of a rising tides mentality, as referenced in our ‘Coopetition Always Wins’ post from this past November, but we wanted to give props to our contemporaries, for these strategic announcements:
Akamai Buys Xerocole.
Cloudflare Partners with Digital Ocean.
OpenDNS Acquires BGPMon.
NSOne Announces Funding Round.
We believe there is a great fight ahead for companies battling for the Internet Performance value proposition. We aim to be the de facto standard for Internet Performance for businesses of all sizes – a neutral, unbiased, agnostic provider of a platform that integrates real-time intelligence and controls to optimize traffic for availability, security, performance and costs. If you aren’t leveraging Dyn solutions in your network operations and infrastructure toolkit, you aren’t truly taking your end users seriously. That’s our angle and we’re sticking to it.
Dyn is the ‘Switzerland of the Internet.’
Some players take a security bent, others an optimization angle, all now global – with mobile relevancy a must. CDN, web acceleration, cloud, website monitoring, APM, NPM, IPM, DDoS – different technology, same hopeful outcome—availability and performance of websites, apps and networks.
Markets aren’t won, they’re lead. See you in the market.
