Application Traffic Routing

Why Multicloud Success Relies on Smart DDI Solutions

As organizations increasingly embrace the cloud, the complexity and diversity of multicloud environments pose significant challenges, demanding robust, agile management solutions. Navigating this complexity requires sophisticated tools that can integrate, secure, and optimize disparate cloud services seamlessly. EfficientIP’s latest whitepaper, Achieving Multicloud Operational Excellence: The Key Role of DDI, offers valuable insights into leveraging DNS, DHCP, and IP Address Management (DDI) solutions to master these challenges. By centralizing control,enhancing visibility, enabling end-to-end automation, and simplifying compliance, DDI solutions empower businesses...

SD-WAN: Why DDI is Key for Efficient Management

As published in a recent article in SDxCentral based on research from MEF, both the SD-WAN and SASE markets show strong revenue and activity, but they both face challenges impacting market efficiencies and growth. Let’s review the related challenges presented in the article and see how a solid DDI Solution can help mitigate these challenges and ease multi-vendor SD-WAN and integration of Security options. Challenges with SD-WAN for Service Providers and Enterprises Across the globe, 36 Service Provider experts were surveyed and the results...

SD-WAN: How DDI Simplifies Deployment and Operations

SD-WAN was born as Enterprises needed cheaper bandwidth and more nimble ways of deploying and operating WAN networks especially with the requirements of Digital Transformation. Although SD-WAN delivers on its promises, most solutions on the market do not fulfill all the services that were rendered by traditional MPLS services, like for instance IP Address Management (IPAM). While providing some subsets of its features, SD-WAN solutions lack Integrated DDI (DNS-DHCP-IPAM) as a whole, especially DNS services. And while SD-WAN is protocol...

DNS GSLB for Disaster Recovery

While application data controllers (or load balancers) are capable of distributing application traffic towards servers within the data center, a global server load balancing (GSLB) solution enhances this to cover multi-data center strategies. GSLB can also prove valuable for disaster recovery scenarios based on activating dedicated IT resources in a specific spare data center. DNS combined with GSLB offers an easy and efficient way to simplify the required network operations. EfficientIP application repository eases the preparation phase of the IT...

Enhancing SD-WAN Efficiency with Edge DNS GSLB for Improved UX

For organizations to survive in today’s highly competitive digital world, it’s vital that their businesses run smoothly. Users and customers need to be able to access their important work applications and services, at all times and from anywhere. Unfortunately, network complexity is increasing the likelihood of apps becoming unreachable due to scenarios such as WAN failure. SD-WAN can assist to some extent, but is helpless when any network component on the routing path goes down. This is where adding DNS...

How Edge DNS GSLB complements LB/ADC

Edge DNS GSLB (Global Server Load Balancing) is a great solution for enabling global application traffic routing and is therefore very complementary to all ADC load-balancing solutions installed directly in datacenters for improving performance and redundancy. This blog article focuses especially on the combined benefits of using both technologies to provide more value to the users and help ease the work of I&O teams. The role of a load balancer (LB) or application delivery controller (ADC) is mainly to distribute...

DNS GSLB & Service Mesh for Continuous Delivery

For users to access their applications, DNS resolution to determine the destination and IP routing to find the path are mandatory. The application modules and services should be exposed on the servers or facilitator equipment such as a load-balancer. For static installation of applications onto servers, DNS configuration and load-balancing are quite easy, but in modern software architecture based on decoupling and microservices, it is more dynamic and therefore far more complex. This is where service mesh and Edge DNS...

Edge DNS GSLB for Corporate CDN: Improving UX and Bandwidth

As previously described in our ”Predictions 2020” blog, workloads will progressively move this year from central cloud locations to edge ones. Digital transformation and new usages like device data collection, augmented reality or contextual video advertising are requiring more capacity from IP networks and shorter delays, which may be incompatible with cloud computing. In this context, Edge DNS GSLB is a very simple solution for intelligently directing users to their local computing resources, thus improving both UX and bandwidth utilization....

Predictions 2020: Networks and IT Biggest Impacts

From 5G driving SDN and NFV, to exploding enterprise apps, edge computing, connected hybrid clouds and, of course, cybersecurity, the new decade in 2020 promises to be very eventful for network and security managers across the globe. Here are our predictions for the top five trends that will shape technology and the networks industry in the coming year. 1. Infrastructure will move closer to the edge Progressing towards multiple clouds is a really smart move. It helps ease digital transformation...

How Edge DNS GSLB Ensures App Availability During WAN Failure

Detecting IP path failures on enterprise networks is becoming increasingly complex with SD-WAN and multi-cloud approaches. Regardless of the way networking and hosting is being performed by the IT guys, users need to always be able to use their applications, so it’s absolutely vital to circumvent WAN failure scenarios. Edge DNS GSLB (Global Server Load Balancing) is a great solution for this. DNS already plays a crucial part in the user to application binding process. Adding GSLB functionality to DNS...
