NS1, the leader in next generation DNS and application traffic management solutions, today announced that Catchpoint’s Digital Experience Monitoring platforms will leverage NS1’s white-glove migration services to quickly and securely implement NS1’s Dedicated DNS for added redundancy. Catchpoint previously leveraged a combination of NS1 and Oracle Dyn.
More than 20,000 end users rely on Catchpoint’s monitoring platforms for critical insight into system performance, reliability and reachability – 24 hours a day, seven days a week. With 800 points of presence (PoPs) globally, maintaining redundant DNS is crucial to ensure optimal performance and 100% availability. NS1’s Managed DNS has been a part of Catchpoint’s multi-vendor strategy since 2015. Together, the benefits of NS1’s next-generation DNS and recent industry changes prompted the company to expand its NS1 deployment. With both Managed and Dedicated DNS through NS1, Catchpoint benefits from industry-leading, dual-network DNS delivery with streamlined management through a single-pane-of-glass interface.
“Catchpoint now has maximum coverage for our DNS environments and with NS1’s flexible APIs and automation capabilities, the IT team no longer needs to manually maintain systems behind the scenes,” said Catchpoint CEO Mehdi Daoudi. “We experienced a 75% reduction in maintenance workload, which frees up personnel resources to tackle new projects and product innovation that will better serve our customer base.”
By using both Managed and Dedicated DNS services from NS1, Catchpoint eliminates issues with DNS parity while ensuring redundancy. NS1’s easy-to-use interface provides robust analytics and its flexible APIs are a critical component to their automation strategy.
“Catchpoint is taking advantage of NS1’s seamless white-glove migration services to quickly custom build and scale the new dedicated DNS network within days,” said Kris Beevers, co-founder and CEO, NS1. “NS1’s customer success team will have them up and running quickly to leverage their expanded deployment.”
