Hybrid Cloud Routing

Using the right resource for the right workload.

Businesses across the world are migrating to the cloud to improve IT agility, reduce infrastructure cost and accelerate the pace of innovation. While many are adopting cloud-first for new application development and shifting some critical workloads to the cloud, hybrid cloud / data center and multicloud environments are the new normal. By distributing applications and content across multiple cloud providers, CDNs and data center resources organizations can balance performance, optimize costs and ensure continuous service availability.

To ensure quality customer experiences across the globe, organizations need to steer users to the right resource--cloud provider, CDN, corporate data center--at any particular moment in time. Given the volatility and dynamic nature of the internet, the right compute resource for one user or workload will be different for different users or workloads based a number of factors (geolocation, route performance, end-point constraints, etc.).

Dyn's View

The cloud introduces traffic management challenges for network and system administrators. Application and network performance can vary widely from provider to provider and region to region. As you make the move to the cloud you’ll need to assess the health and performance of your internet assets, and regulate traffic flows to ensure quality user experiences. A managed DNS service provider can help you make the most of your hybrid cloud infrastructure by providing intelligent responses to requests. Leading DNS providers offer traffic steering capabilities to optimize the global performance and reliability of your online applications.

How Dyn Helps

Dyn’s Managed DNS uses the world’s most comprehensive internet performance data set to power our traffic steering, helping optimize the performance, reliability and costs of your hybrid cloud infrastructure. With Dyn you can distribute traffic across public clouds, enterprise data center resources and content delivery networks to boost global application performance and digital resilience. Real-time internet intelligence is used to steer traffic around system failures and performance bottlenecks to improve service quality and uptime.

With geolocation load balancing, you can route traffic based on user location to optimize service quality, serve up local content or satisfy regulatory requirements. And with policy-based load balancing you can distribute traffic across private and public cloud resources to optimize performance and costs, or move traffic to the cloud in a controlled fashion to support application migrations.

Dyn helps orchestrate web traffic based on real-time internet performance data. Our vast sensor network collects and analyzes over 240 billion data points a day from 600+ strategic vantage points and sensors. We intelligently steer users to the best resources, along the best route, based on your business rules and live internet conditions.
