NSONE Description

NSONE or NS1 is a provider of intelligent DNS and traffic management services. The company is headquartered in New York, and has offices in San Francisco and in Singapore. Founded in 2013 by a team with first-hand experience in building content delivery networks (CDNs), infrastructure APIs and cloud platforms, NSONE came about to enable and improve present day’s dynamic infrastructures.

NS1 leverages infrastructure, network and real time user data to allow customers on their platform to create customised routing setups for a wide variety of applications. They offer data driven traffic management, managed DNS and dedicated DNS. Their product Pulsar is designed for real-time performance-based traffic routing, and offers fully automated traffic management functionality that can be used in a multi-CDN solution.

Note that NS1 does not include a content delivery network in its offering. Customers interested in their services will need to acquire multiple CDNs elsewhere in order to build a multi-CDN solution.

Current and or past customers of NS1 include Yelp, imgur, PulsePoint, onelogin, Algolia, Teridion, Thaifriendly, CDN provider MaxCDN and multi-CDN provider TurboBytes.

The network status of NS1 can be viewed here. The company has had periods of downtime and degraded performance, which have had a direct impact on clients. For more comparative information specifically on DNS performance we recommend websites such as DNSPerf.

SPACECDN Description

SpaceCDN is the dedicated CDN selling branch of INXY - a Cyprus-based reseller of dedicated servers, storage and CDNs. The company was founded in 2006 and just similar to SpaceCDN, more companies fly under the banner of INXY, such as INXYHOST and SpaceCDN.ru. The CDN offering of SpaceCDN.com and SpaceCDN.ru differs, as the international site offers Leaseweb and the Russian site offers CDNNOW instead.

In total, the CDN partners of INXY and SpaceCDN are EdgeCast, UCDN, Highwinds, Leaseweb and CDNNOW.

Clients can use the CDN price calculator to get an estimate of the possible discount to their CDN costs when buying from SpaceCDN. Both per traffic pricing and per bandwidth pricing is possible.

While SpaceCDN nor INXY (re)sell DNS services or CDN balancing technology, they do sell multiple CDNs. For clients interested in multiple CDNs within a multi-CDN setup, brokers can be a suitable solution to limit the amount of contract partners. Depending on the feature needs of a client prices with SpaceCDN differ per CDN provider in their portfolio.

We do not have information about customers of SpaceCDN.
