DeepField Networks is a network intelligence company founded in 2011 by Arbor Networks founder Craig Labovitz and Joe Eggleston. Coming out of stealth mode in with their tool in 2012, the company has been running operations from their headquarters in Michigan, United States.
The DeepField Cloud Intelligence monitoring tool allows clients to keep track of their network performance, peering traffic and CDN traffic. Metrics like throughput, traffic volume and latency are visualised in a dashboard.
The Cloud Genome component of Cloud Intelligence maps a variety of Internet services such as sites, cloud stores and CDNs and gives deeper insights into the entire content delivery chain.
Next to performance monitoring and the Cloud Genome tech, DeepField also offers DeepField Defender, a DDoS protection service.
While Deepfield’s intelligence includes synthetic monitoring data, we do not know if their platform is suitable for a multi-CDN setup. In addition, as DeepField does not provide a loadbalancing or CDN balancing service, nor CDNs, more is needed to make their data actionable within a multi-CDN solution.
Amazon Route53 is the DNS web service of Amazon Web Services (AWS). It’s part of the larger AWS ecosystem that also includes, among others:
Route53 allows the routing of users both to other AWS services and to non-Amazon infrastructure. Management of the DNS and of other AWS services can be done via a graphical web interface.
Amazon’s Route53 Traffic Flow product enables clients to route traffic according to different preferences, such as Round Robin, latency based routing or Geo DNS. All types come with DNS failover.
Amazon provides a 100% available SLA for Route53, meaning that the company warrants that the service is up and running all the time, every month.
