Wingify runs its own content delivery network (CDN) with 11 points of presence (POP) around the globe. To ensure the fastest response times for customers, Wingify wanted a DNS solution that would accurately send the user to the closest geolocated CDN POP, which its previous DNS vendor could not guarantee. Proof of concept testing with four vendors showed NS1 to be the clear winner for these reasons:

  • Better geolocation routing: The NS1 solution uses its exclusive metadata and Filter Chain™ technology to accurately geolocate the user and select a POP in the user's country, or the geographically closest POP to the user if an in-country POP is not available.
  • Improved customer experience: Wingify has experienced a significant drop in total response times worldwide due to better geolocation routing.
  • Exceptional customer service: NS1's ability to meet Wingify's technical requirements, excellent DNS response times and responsiveness to questions gave Wingify the confidence to trust NS1 with this mission-critical part of its infrastructure.

Ankit Jain, associate director, engineering, Wingify, said: "We had a specific solution in mind for our CDN. Other providers could not supply what we wanted. NS1 showed us how they could create the solution we wanted and explained the technology that would make it happen. Their attention to our needs as a customer along with their technology made me confident in choosing NS1 as our Managed DNS provider."

Kris Beevers, cofounder and CEO of NS1, said: "Today's internet is nothing like it was when DNS was first introduced more than 30 years ago. Organizations with globally distributed infrastructure like Wingify need a modern DNS solution with intelligent traffic management that can optimize application performance accurately and easily. We created our solution from the ground up for just that reason, and we look forward to helping even more companies deliver global applications scalably, efficiently and easily."
