F5 Distributed Cloud DNS provides primary and secondary deployment options, while boosting the global performance and resilience of applications across multiple clouds and availability zones.
More than 75% of enterprises today operate in multiple clouds, according to the 2022 F5 State of Application Strategy Report. But a much smaller percentage are known to have implemented a cloud-based DNS (Domain Name System), which offers considerable speed and performance benefits for publishing applications.
Why? Perhaps it is because extending traditional DNS to all of their applications across different environments, especially those running in the cloud, can be time-consuming and cumbersome for many organizations.
Most on-premises DNS solutions don’t scale as well as needed to support the ballooning number of applications deployed and today’s burgeoning application footprints. It can be laborious and costly to establish a DNS for modern apps that easily integrates into CI/CD pipelines and critical development workflows. That increases the challenge of providing the app services necessary to securely deliver applications while meeting the performance expectations of users in a hyper digital world.
It doesn’t have to be this difficult. Not anymore.
Ease the Burden on Your Operations and Development Teams
F5 Distributed Cloud DNS simplifies DNS delivery across multi-cloud environments and modern applications. This SaaS-based primary and secondary authoritative DNS service offers global distribution, DDoS protection, DNSSEC, and the flexibility to automatically scale to meet growing application demands.
As your primary DNS, Distributed Cloud DNS brings maximum performance with a geo-distributed cloud network and built-in DDoS protection. As a secondary DNS, it helps reduce the load on your primary service, providing redundancy in the event of a primary service failure and improving response times if your primary service is disabled or degraded in any way.
By using it either as primary or secondary DNS solution, you can simplify DNS management and security while easing the burden on your operations and development teams. F5 does most of the heavy lifting, applying more than 25 years of experience in application networking and security solutions. You avoid, among other things, manual deployment, security, and management as well as hardware and software maintenance.
