DYN Description

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.

Notable customers of Dyn are, or have been Netflix, Twitter, Zappos, Pandora Radio, Tumblr, CNBC and Hershey’s.

GLOBALDOTS Description

GlobalDots is a large player in the web acceleration industry; they’ve been around for more than 10 years and have offices in the US, Europe and Israel. The company refers to itself as an independent cloud and performance optimisation integration partner, and provides cloud hosting, security, DNS, traffic management, web acceleration, streaming and CDN solutions.

GlobalDots is not a content delivery provider, but a reseller. They provide tailored solutions to customer’s IT challenges, which of course can include content delivery solutions. Customers of the GlobalDots CDN service are signed up with one of the company’s CDN partners, which according to their website is a “major CDN provider” at a price level of a lower tier provider.

Since the actual CDN provider can vary depending on the needs of the customer, there is no uniform overview of the features offered by GlobalDots. Supported features will depend entirely on the CDN partners in the GlobalDots portfolio.

The IaaS portfolio of GlobalDots includes Enhanced DNS and Global Traffic Management. As the company does not disclose which providers it is partnered with, it is unknown which provider(s) take care of the service delivery to the client.

Depending on the client’s needs, and under the assumption that GlobalDots partners with a wide variety of service providers, it is likely that different types of DNS, performance data and CDN solutions are available.

Direct customers of GlobalDots are, or have been:

While, to our knowledge, GlobalDots does not yet resell a multi-CDN provider, their large offering makes it easy to get multiple CDNs, a DNS and a data solution from one place.
