The Dynect Platform’s DNS Manager allows customers to maximize the performance of aiCDN. Customers can route traffic to multiple aiScaler instances distributed globally. The Dynect platform provides failover, load balancing, load shaping and distribution. Customers implement aiCDN with failover to their existing CDN infrastructure to remove the risk while optimizing their environments for Dynamic Caching.
Traditionally companies may have found it too risky flip the switch and direct their traffic off the CDN provider, even if they aren’t satisfied with the performance or pricing. With the Dynect Platform, companies can easily bring aiScaler instances into the mix to test and peel traffic away from the CDN. Once you find a formula that optimizes performance and reduces cost, you can feel confident in the provider and configuration you choose.
DynECT Traffic Management (DTM) is a DNS-based Global Server Load Balancer solution that allows you to distribute application load between global datacenters or cloud providers. Customers can direct traffic based on a combination of user geography and available capacity at a certain site via rule sets with weighted or geo-targeted definitions.
Our sophisticated monitoring system will detect failure and automatically route Internet traffic to the next closest available server and will also send an alert to system administrators.
An example: if you have one data center on the East Coast, one data center on the West Coast and one Amazon EC2 cloud location in Europe, DTM will automatically route your East Coast users to your East Coast data center and so on.
If one of these data centers or servers should fail, we will automatically direct your traffic to the next closest location (ex. West Coast traffic would re-route to the East Coast rather than Europe).
