Dyn Inc. Announces Two Strong Network Additions to Support Evolving Client Roster

Dynamic Network Services Inc. (Dyn Inc.), the fastest growing provider of managed DNS services, today announced the addition of two additional PoPs (Points of Presence) that will serve as an upgrade to their current "rock-solid" Tier-1 Global IP Anycast Network. Coinciding with the announcement that the Dyn Inc. network has expanded to 14 Global Datacenters, the company also welcomes new clients including Gawker, Pandora and Photobucket to their Dynect Platform, which serves enterprises and fast-growth organizations cloud-based DNS, disaster recovery, load balancing, geo-targeting and CDN management tools.

"Powering an important piece of Web infrastructure for thousands of the Internet's best brands is something Dyn Inc. takes very seriously," said Kyle York, VP, Sales & Marketing at Dyn Inc. "Ensuring performance, reliability, redundancy, security, speed, and uptime for each client and their end-users is critical, which is why each PoP addition to Dyn Inc.'s already robust network is crucial."

By adding PoPs in Dallas, TX and Singapore, Dyn Inc. is strategically balancing global traffic load for its client base, along with the two constellations that make up its own global network. The setup of these two diverse constellations, A and B, provide failover redundancy in the event of a catastrophic failure. The first constellation was built for performance and DDoS resilience while the second was built as a performance overlay network. Initial tests have shown significant decreases in latency and DNS resolution time for clients in south central US and South East Asia, both areas served by the new PoPs.

"We're constantly striving to make improvements and upgrades to our network," said Tom Daly, CTO at Dyn Inc. "These are not simply 'dots on a map' to us, but well calculated locations that are already improving the user experience worldwide. Those served by the Dallas PoP, have reported increased Web speed by as much as 25 milliseconds, while those served by the Singapore PoP are experiencing an increased speed of up to 100 milliseconds in some cases."

In June 2010, Dyn Inc. was featured in an NTT America case study, discussing details of their infrastructure partnership and how it has improved performance on the company's Anycast DNS services, the Dynect Platform and the DynDNS.com Internet Guide service for recursive DNS caching. The Internet Guide service, which is available direct to consumers and OEM partners, offers users a fast and more secure Web surfing experience through anti-phishing, anti-malware protection and cloud-based Web filtering. These announcements mark Dyn Inc.'s focus on operating a world-class, global network, with plans for continued expansion throughout the next 18 months. Future planned PoPs include Seattle, WA and Sydney, Australia by the end of 2010.

"As Dyn Inc. continues to build out and upgrade its world-class network, more companies looking for a reliable DNS solution are turning to Dyn Inc.," York said. "We are excited to have recently added clients like: 4INFO, Drop.io, Gawker, Pandora, PetcareRX, Photobucket, Revision3, Triggit, Truveo, UserVoice and Zoosk to our loyal list of customers. We continue to see tremendous growth in the Web 2.0, SaaS, e-commerce, ad/media and cloud computing verticals."

"As a provider of mobile advertising and media, speed and reliability is a must. On the Dynect Platform, we feel confident knowing we have the support of a strong, proven, globally redundant network that our end-users can depend on," added Rob DeMillo, CTO of 4INFO.
