Dyn At TechCrunch Disrupt: 4 Disruptors You Need To Know About

TechCrunch Disrupt

Upending the status quo. Creating the future. Charting a new path. Whatever you call it, there’s a universal truth at the core of disruption: the only constant in this world is change.

Here at TechCrunch Disrupt, many Dyn clients are making it happen, ones with proven track records like Sequoia Capital, Mashery, & Hightail. We thank you for your support of this great technical community and helping to make it better every day.

And if you’ve been using Twitter or LinkedIn during the event, you’ve been getting rock solid Dyn Traffic Management powered by our 18 data center global anycast DNS network.

Now, a new generation of disrupters is emerging in the TechCrunch Disrupt Startup Alley, and I had the pleasure of catching up with a few of them using Dyn to power their disruption.


Get ready to rethink your approach to telecom. 2600hz is building the operating system for communications. API driven from the ground up, folks building out call centers, conferencing solutions, and rich video communications can get a faster time to market and more reliable service without having to start their app from scratch.

What do they love about Dyn Traffic Management? Joshua Goldbard says a solid API driven platform was key to them, and they invested a lot of time making sure they chose the right DNS partner.


Folks that know networks know that China and APAC present interesting challenges in reliably and quickly connecting users to content. Livid Liu knows this first-hand, and originally being from the region, he has decided to do something about. He’s building out V2EDGE, a content delivery network with a focus on China and Asia, and is proud to show off the built-in SPDY support to his network.

Of course, he was happy to hear Dyn’s next two data centers will be in mainland China, which bodes well for the performance and reliability of his users.


Nothing quite like coming out to San Francisco to meet a neighbor from Cambridge! I ran into CTO Gene Lew (CTO) and CEO Meredith Flynn-Ripley showcasing the “use SMS text messaging on your business landline phone number from your smartphone” capabilities of HeyWire. Gene gave a solid demo, nailing the case for separating your business text messages from your personal text messages. An experienced operator himself, Gene knows the value of solid DNS. Remember Gene, #DNSISSEXY.


Who said the “things” in “Internet of Things” had to be stationary? If the Carvoyant team has anything to do about it, you’ll have a ubiquitous API for your automobile for your hacking pleasure. I first ran into these folks at Gluecon, and excited to hear they’re progressing along nicely.

We’re proud to play a role in powering the Internet Performance for the next generation of disrupters, but are always interested in hearing about more. Tweet at me and let me know who we should know about!
