Next-Generation DNS Drives Better SRE: Here's How

Hybrid infrastructure, containerization, and DevOps are now commonplace in enterprise IT architectures and underscore the need for IT agility and velocity.With developers managing large engineering systems and the push to continuously introduce new, high-quality features, DevOps has been the standard to meet the challenge head-on.

DNS at DevOps Speed

But DevOps teams are delivering code more than 40 times faster than traditional application development, highlighting the need for DNS that can keep up with that velocity. Cloud architectures, microservices, and infrastructure scale have exposed unmet needs in DNS that could hamper modernization efforts; including the need for flexible traffic management, service discovery, rapid propagation, and comprehensive API support. DNS plays a vital role in modernizing the application delivery stack, yet there has been a glaring lack of DNS solutions designed to meet the needs of modern IT.

Next-Generation DNS

DNS should allow for deployment within enterprise intranets to meet the needs of user-to-user, user to device/application and application to application communication. It would have to be massively scalable, automated, fast and smart and help organizations:

  • Reduce deployment delays in DevOps
  • Speed up DNS service discovery
  • Improve traffic management and load balancing
  • Get their DNS sprawl under control

Next-gen DNS can be leveraged for application delivery and management in a way that doesn’t require extensive retooling of applications, and the right DNS can improve your team’s ability to innovate and automate by consolidating often disparate DNS solutions into one.
