DevOps culture emphasizes collaboration and communication among software developers, QA, and other IT operations professionals. This model continues to gain traction because it has become an efficient method of software delivery and infrastructure changes.
When DevOps teams roll out applications into dynamic, software-defined environments – often as much as 40 times faster than traditional development teams, the underlying technologies, such as DNS, must be able to move at the same velocity. Open source DNS solutions were developed long before the days of agile development. As a result, they lack the native APIs and automation capabilities required by modern infrastructure, and often become bottlenecks, slowing down the agile process.
NS1 addresses this challenge with a full suite of DNS platforms – managed and self-hosted for external or internal networks – all designed from the ground up for modern application development and delivery. These solutions can dramatically reduce manual processes and inefficiencies that increase costs and slow application changes. NS1 solutions feature an API-first approach that easily integrates with how today’s IT services are developed, deployed and maintained. This method supports rapid global change propagation and high-velocity application and infrastructure automation; vendor-agnostic DNS load balancing; and service discovery at cloud scale — all critical for successful modern enterprise application delivery.
As a testament to the importance of DNS in addressing DevOps challenges, we are thrilled to announce that we’ve been selected among an elite group of companies as a finalist for the DevOps Industry Awards in the Leading DevOps Vendor category. These awards celebrate companies and individuals who have accomplished significant achievements when incorporating and adopting DevOps practices.
To be considered for the awards, vendors must demonstrate more than just technical prowess – they must also show a commitment to driving customer success. NS1 is widely recognized for providing unparalleled service and support. Our experienced and forward-looking DNS experts routinely work alongside customers to identify and achieve their goals.
Here are just a few examples of our commitment to our customers:
Aaron Peters, co-founder at web performance company TurboBytes:
“The folks at NS1 are experts. They instantly understood our platform, the challenges we faced, and how to address those challenges. NS1’s technology perfectly matches our functional requirements -- they are API driven, flexible and high-performance -- just like us. NS1’s support is quick and helpful. They are highly technical and speak our non-corporate language. Using NS1 gives us confidence that we’re in good hands and our platform is future-proof.”
Alan Schaaf, CEO, Imgur:
“I’ve never seen another DNS service quite like NS1. I feel that their data-driven approach, combined with their incredible flexibility, makes them the next generation DNS host. Best of all, everything is set up to where we don’t even have to think about it. It just works.”
Eduard Rushanyan, director of production operations, Centro Basis:
“Working with NS1 is always a pleasure, and it’s fun at the same time. Their knowledgeable, solution-oriented engineers assist at every phase of the installation. Couldn’t ask for a better experience from a vendor.”
As the first stop for all application delivery, DNS is a critical point of success or failure. While traditional solutions can slow down CI/CD and create bottlenecks, our next generation DNS solutions are fueling DevOps initiatives and driving optimal velocity for modern business. From innovative solutions “that just work” to brilliant customer service – NS1 is the best partner for DevOps teams.
We look forward to attending the awards ceremony next month at the Millenium Gloucester Hotel in Kensington, London.
