Wednesday, 11th September 2019 – Paris, France – EfficientIP, a leading provider of network security and automation solutions specializing in DDI (DNS-DHCP-IPAM), today announced the release of the industry’s first edge DNS GSLB (Global Server Load Balancing) offering. With enterprises moving to multi-cloud environments, data centers becoming distributed and security risks increasing, DNS GSLB helps enhance user experience while strengthening resiliency (DRP) and reducing costs by simplifying architectures.
The solution integrates load balancing functionality into both authoritative and recursive DNS servers, allowing application traffic routing decisions to be taken from the network edge. It can be used as an alternative or as a complement to traditional load balancers/application delivery controllers (ADCs). By adding global server load balancing to its SOLIDsever product suite, EfficientIP brings a unique all-in-one solution comprising DNS services, GSLB functions and purpose-built DNS security in the same appliance.
