The latest version includes a free Anycast DNS (Domain Name System) service. This provides a low-latency, resilient global DNS service that is fully managed and integrated with the OnApp Cloud platform. The net result is better application performance for end-users without the headaches and costs of managing a DNS infrastructure for the service provider.
The new DNS service is the latest feature introduced by OnApp to help service providers compete with Amazon Web Services, which offers Route 53, a DNS service that users must pay for. OnApp clients can use OnApp’s Anycast DNS service for their own domains, and any domains they host for their customers, free of charge.
OnApp’s Anycast DNS service is hosted at 14 datacenters around the world, and is available to all clients running the full version of OnApp Cloud with CDN enabled.
OnApp Cloud v2.3.2 includes more than 500 new features and enhancements.
In addition to the new DNS functionality, OnApp Cloud v2.3.2 adds more flexible licensing options for Windows virtual machines; new backup server options that improve stability and performance; new search tools that simplify cloud administration and localization; and the ability to add custom user fields that can be processed by the OnApp API.
