PDF on Neustar UltraDNS Infrastructure Summary (Click to Download)With our 100% SLA, UltraDNS is your assurance that customers will reach your site instead of being denied. As a cloud-based service, it requires no additional hardware, software or in-house expertise.

It's the difference between reaching your site and being denied, between keeping your customers and losing them to the competition. Managing your DNS is not a glamorous job — but it is critical. DNS is essential to virtually every Internet transaction. We understand DNS and pay more attention to it than any other company on the planet.

Handling the entire DNS process is what we do better than anyone else. Based on knowledge and expertise acquired through years of operating server networks, we created the first fully fault-tolerant DNS infrastructure — Neustar® UltraDNS®.

With the UltraDNS Managed DNS Service, you're able to offload system responsibility for your authoritative DNS while maintaining control and ensuring consistent, accurate resolution of all your Internet domains. UltraDNS Managed DNS Service provides a completely scalable solution capable of processing thousands of queries per second. As you grow and your DNS requirements increase, we are there to support you. Unlike many Internet infrastructure products, our support team ensures support 24/7/365 for an Internet presence that's always available.

Managed DNS Service: Under the Hood

The UltraDNS Managed DNS Service is built on a global directory platform consisting of strategically placed network nodes. The nodes form an Oracle database-driven infrastructure replicating globally in near real time, ensuring DNS requests are resolved with the latest data. Traditional DNS infrastructure has requests routed randomly. The UltraDNS Managed DNS Service requests are routed to the nearest available geographic network node through IP ANYCAST and our proprietary technology. This ensures customers receive the quickest, most accurate DNS response every day. With neustar UltraDNS, your DNS is always available and accurate - without outage concerns, resetting DNS during administration procedures, or hardware failures.

An advanced, easy-to-use, secure, web-based management portal provides the tools to keep your DNS environment accurate. Whether it's the addition of a new domain or customizing Time To Live (TTL) settings for a specific DNS resource record, the management portal provides controls to administer your infrastructure easily and securely.

With UltraDNS you can count on:

Security – Protection against DNS DDoS attacks, plus DNSSEC to safeguard against cache poisoning; UltraDNS does not permit access to server source code; as a proprietary non-BIND platform it isn't prone to hijacking, spoofing or viruses.

Performance – Redundant ANYCAST network with carrier-class nodes for the fastest global DNS resolutions and the fewest dropped queries.

Availability – Guaranteed to answer queries 100% of the time, even during maintenance windows.

Control – Easy-to-use management portal with traffic-routing optimization and micro-control of time-to-live (TTL)

Scalability – Global DNS network to seamlessly accommodate growth.
