Redwood City, California – (The Hosting News) – April 4, 2006 – Web hosting provider, Verio, has selected its Foundation Authoritative Name Server (ANS) to ensure high availability for its domain name customers.
According to network naming and addressing solutions company, Nominum, the upgrade of Verio’s existing authoritative DNS servers with Nominum’s commercial grade ANS servers has increased capacity threefold, reduced downtime significantly, and ultimately allows Verio to better meet service levels agreements to its growing subscriber base.
Nominum ANS is the most scalable authoritative name server available. An authoritative name server provides definitive DNS information for a specific set of Internet name spaces (zones). In contrast, a caching name server retrieves information from authoritative servers and caches it locally for optimal performance. Nominum technology optimizes function and performance for each role by separating authoritative and caching DNS functions in distinct products.
Fred Martin, Vice President of Operations at Verio commented, ”At Verio, we manage more than 220,000 DNS domains and IDC again named Verio as one of the top 10 largest and most successful U.S. Web hosting service providers. With our level of business growth, we can’t afford delays in service and performance. We implemented Nominum’s ANS on our DNS server infrastructure and within an hour we were able to integrate it into our existing system with zero downtime, giving us the service assurance and delivery that our customers depend on.”
Tom Tovar, Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Business Development at Nominum added, ”Not only is ANS designed to deliver optimized performance, enhanced security, and business continuity, it is also designed to scale as a company’s needs grow. As a leading web hosting provider, Verio requires a highly reliable DNS infrastructure and we are proud to be a key enabler of their solution.”
