Dyn is a web performance management company headquartered in New Hampshire, USA with offices in San Francisco, England, and Australia. Dyn started out in 2001 as an open-source project by former Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) undergrads Jeremy Hitchcock, Tom Daly, Tim Wilde and Chris Reinhardt. Originally, the company went by the name Dynamic DNS Network Services Incorporated.
Nowadays, Dyn provides services such as data traffic management, dynamic DNS, geoDNS, Internet intelligence and domain registration. When building a multi-CDN solution using Dyn, their traffic manager and DNS are needed, and their Internet intelligence product.
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.
