DDI for Telco: Improving Business Continuity, Operational Efficiency and Scalability

For Telecom operators and Internet Service Providers, IP networks are becoming increasingly complex to manage and evolve. Multi cloud, IoT, 5G and other digital transformation projects have introduced “anything-as-a-software”, SD-WAN, NFV and SDN architectures and opened up new usages requiring ultra-low latency. DNS, DHCP and IPAM (known collectively as DDI) are critical technologies for IP networks, and together with automation are mandatory for simplifying management via zero-touch operations, while ensuring service availability and enhancing user experience. EfficientIP’s all-in-one solution integrates...

DDI for Multicloud: Improving Opex, UX and App Deployment

When it comes to handling of new applications and workloads for modern digital infrastructures, multicloud is an unquestionable reality. However, the real value of cloud is being held back by siloed data and manual processes which are both error-prone and time-consuming. Success of hybrid multicloud projects is very much reliant on resiliency, accessibility, security and performance of cloud infrastructures and services. For this, integrating the resources deployed in clouds with a DDI (DNS-DHCP-IPAM) solution is critical, as it brings the...

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....

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...

GSLB & Automated Application Deployment

Deployment or migration of applications in multi-cloud infrastructures can be made simpler and faster by using GSLB configuration to connect users to the newly-released app. When automation is used in the context of application continuous deployment, making use of an automated DDI (DNS-DHCP-IPAM) solution which is capable of also handling applications is really valuable. This is what EfficientIP brings to automation teams with its application repository and its edge DNS GSLB solution. The multi-cloud mix of internal and external infrastructure...

Application Traffic Routing with DNS GSLB

Application delivery to users is key in the digital transformation of enterprise processes. With the growing complexity of networks, hosting and application architecture, users still need to be directed to the best available component of the application. This is a challenge EfficientIP has accepted, and our DNS GSLB solution provides the answer with intelligent application traffic routing feature. IT systems have been shaken by multiple new approaches. Hybrid multi-cloud tends to distribute the workload on the most convenient and efficient...
