Pushing Your Application's Performance Using Pulsar

Recently, Nate Lindstrom, our VP of Solutions Engineering, hosted a webinar covering Pulsar, our cloud-based routing engine that acts on real-time performance metrics from actual end users.

Pulsar combines these measurements with our NS1's Managed DNS for deeper visibility into application performance -- enabling intelligent, real-time, and automated routing decisions. Best of all, Pulsar is engineered to be lightweight, turnkey, and easily integrated into existing applications via APIs or a non-invasive script placed on a website or application.

Pulsar enables:

  • Leveraging high-volume, real-time end user telemetry to make granular, automated traffic routing decisions based on live network and performance measurements.
  • Routing users to optimal service endpoints based on actual performance telemetry, including latency, throughput, packet loss, jitter, application specific measurements, and more.
  • Seamless integration with NS1’s intelligent DNS and traffic management platform to easily configure complex routing decisions with a library of mix-and-match algorithms to fit business-specific needs.

Check out the video below for a look at Pulsar in action. Nate walks users through the steps required to activate Pulsar -- from identifying the right latency metrics to constructing a Filter Chain!
