When it comes to delivering digital content, downtime isn’t the only concern. Today a poor user experience can be just as damaging as an outage. According to Limelight research, 78% of people will stop watching an online video after it buffers three times, and the majority of people will not wait more than 5 seconds for a website to load. Organizations looking to deliver great digital experiences for their customers often choose to deliver that content using Content Delivery Networks (CDNs). Using multiple CDNs to deliver these digital content experiences promises even greater levels of availability and performance. But it brings with it a host of questions. In this paper we’ll explore the 5 things you should know about multi-CDN in order to determine if it might make sense for your business.

Secondary DNS (sometimes referred to as multi-DNS) operates in an “always on” manner to complement your existing infrastructure as an additional authoritative DNS service. When an end user’s recursive server initiates a DNS request, both the “primary” DNS service and the “secondary” DNS will respond as soon as they receive the request. The response that reaches the recursive server first will be passed back to the end user, completing their request.

DDoS attacks can impair your website, tarnish your brand, and impact your bottom line. Conventional security products like firewalls and intrusion prevention systems and newer cloud-based scrubbing services can’t protect your DNS infrastructure against today’s increasingly sophisticated attacks. The best way to defend against DDoS attacks is to trust the operation of your DNS infrastructure to a managed service provider that lives and breathes DNS. Best-of-breed managed DNS providers operate global anycast networks that mitigate DDoS threats to keep your online business up and running.

The DNS is an often-overlooked protocol. Historically, many companies believed they could either run their own DNS service in-house or simply use a bundled option provided by their hosting or CDN provider. However, with the rise in DDoS attacks and continued migration to the cloud, the mission-critical nature of the DNS has become quite apparent to companies around the world. As a result, many are searching for a managed DNS provider.

Every user’s first interaction with your website begins with a series of DNS queries. The Domain Name System (DNS) is a distributed internet database that maps human-readable names to IP addresses, ensuring users reach the correct website when entering a URL. DNS mappings are maintained in special-purpose servers called DNS nameservers. When a user enters your company’s URL, a DNS query is routed to a DNS nameserver containing the address mappings for your company’s internet domain.

In this eBook, we’ll make the case for why you need to rethink DNS from several different and important perspectives. The first is to rethink your DNS choices. Choices around solutions, vendors and configurations that were made several years ago may no longer be optimal in today’s environment. The second is to rethink the importance of DNS for building digital resilience, including the need for a secondary DNS configuration. The third is to rethink the value of DNS as it has evolved to be so much more than simple domain name resolution. Modern DNS with intelligent response capabilities continues to open up new opportunities for traffic steering across hybrid resources.

Today’s network edge is increasingly taking on a critical role in connecting users to the digital content and web services that they need to reach. This is driving a new approach to load balancing that starts at the edge. Powered by DNS, edge-based global load balancing (GLB) steers user traffic to destination endpoints based on IT-defined policies. GLB works independently or in concert with site-based, or on premises, load balancing technologies in a “federated” system. This approach applies load balancing and traffic steering policies at each layer from the user edge to the host—whether virtual or physical—where the request is actually served.

Before Bad Things Happen – Be Prepared Providing a great user experience is always the goal, and the best way to achieve that is by having a well-thought-out digital business continuity strategy. You can’t always know what type of disruption you’ll face next, but you can be sure that there will be one. It may come in the form of a broken connection but, even more likely, the availability of the application or host. DNS active failover ensures real-time failover to healthy endpoints, allowing you to extend your business continuity solution to the user edge.

This paper, which has been jointly developed by Akamai and Wuaki.tv — an OTT service provider — covers the importance of satisfying viewer expectations for a broadcast-quality experience by quickly and reliably streaming video online. It explains why it is challenging to do so and outlines best practices for online video delivery. It also explores the option of splitting traffic across multiple content delivery networks (CDNs) versus tightly integrating video player technology with a single CDN in order to improve online video delivery in a strategic manner. Finally, the paper shows how Wuaki.tv chose the latter option and boosted customer retention, customer referrals, and revenues as a result.
