Global Need for Internet Performance Drives 26 Successive Quarters of Revenue Growth
Manchester, NH (August 5, 2015) — Dyn, the worldwide leader in Internet Performance, today announced that the second quarter of 2015 marked the most successful sales quarter in the company’s 14-year history. The quarter was highlighted by a record level of monthly recurring revenue in June 2015. This now makes 26 successive quarters of revenue growth for Dyn since 2009. The quarter also saw significant double-digit year-over-year revenue growth in Dyn’s key international markets.
“Dyn experienced impressive growth this past quarter as companies continue to recognize that our Internet Performance tools are critical components to help scale and improve their businesses,” said Kyle York, CMO, Dyn. “As more companies around the world depend on the Internet and the cloud to deliver their services, they discover that the increasingly complex global Internet landscape has inherent challenges that impact their ability to deliver a reliable and consistent presence. Dyn helps businesses monitor, control and optimize their online infrastructure to provide superior customer experiences.”
Revenue Growth And Global Opportunities
Many companies, regardless of size, view international markets as enormous growth opportunities, not just because they are untapped markets, but because customers no longer live within borders. For example, even though 80 percent of the top 10 global Internet properties have U.S. headquarters, 81 percent of their users reside outside the U.S. One particularly important market is Asia Pacific (APAC), home to 40 percent of global Internet users worldwide; China is home to 20 percent of the global Internet population. By the close of 2015’s second quarter, Dyn reached important revenue benchmarks in these key regions.
Year-over-year revenue growth in Dyn’s APAC region was 58 percent by the close of Q2, 2015. Dyn’s Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region saw year-over-year revenues increase by 33 percent in the same time period.
Customer And Product Growth
The global need for Internet Performance continues to increase, as do Dyn’s customers around the world. New customer growth in the quarter was highlighted by HotelPlanner, Pinterest, Mixpanel, Crowdynews and Qualtrics.
“HotelPlanner knows the importance of quality-of-experience optimization,” said the company’s co-founder, John Prince. “We pride ourselves on leading the market in technology, and believe in using best-of-breed vendors. Dyn for Managed DNS ensures that HotelPlanner.com and our sister corporate site, Meetings.com will deliver an even higher-speed experience on devices of any size and geography.”
Crowdynews, the platform that gathers and filters social content in real-time for news publishers and content affiliates worldwide, partnered with Dyn to improve overall Internet Performance with Dyn’s Traffic Management solutions.
“Speed and availability are absolutely critical for Crowdynews,” said the company’s founder and CEO, Edwin Kuipers. “Thanks to Dyn’s Internet Performance solutions we have seen considerable improvement in our DNS look-up speeds and have the added assurance that Dyn’s infrastructure can support our traffic throughout peak times, which is critical for the real-time nature of our business.”
Dyn Internet Alerts is a new product that launched this past quarter as a key component of Dyn’s Internet Intelligence platform. Dyn Internet Alerts is an easy-to-implement API-based service that lets businesses monitor and measure the health of their Internet resources. Dyn Internet Alerts gives companies highly accurate, real-time monitoring from hundreds of cloud and service providers across all major markets around the world that enables businesses to create better Internet connectivity and business continuity.
“The growth of cloud deployed network services creates a steady stream of new potential partners for Dyn’s Internet Intelligence offering,” said Christian Renaud, Senior Analyst, Networking at 451 Research.
Growing Global Footprint And Key Hires
In the second quarter of 2015, Dyn continued to expand globally. The company opened a new office in Singapore to bolster its Internet Performance services in APAC. Since the region is one of the Internet’s fastest growing but most volatile markets, infrastructure and performance varies widely across APAC. Now, with offices and staff in place in both Sydney and Singapore, Dyn’s investment in the region will be extremely valuable for companies serving customers in the area.
Dyn also hired Chris Hill, Senior Vice President of Talent, in the quarter. Hill will play an essential role in helping Dyn support and grow its global employee base. Hill comes to Dyn from Egenera, where he served as VP of Human Resources. Prior to that, Hill was RSA’s Director of Human Resources.
