DNS hyperscales and secures your infrastructure during high query volumes and DDoS attacks, making sure apps are highly available—even between multiple instances and across hybrid environments.
BIG-IP DNS improves the performance and availability of your global applications by sending users to the closest or best-performing physical, virtual, or cloud environment. It also hyperscales and secures your DNS infrastructure from DDoS attacks.
BIG-IP DNS can hyperscale up to 100 million responses per second (RPS) to manage rapid increases in DNS queries. With a set of features that includes multicore scalability, DNS Express, and IP Anycast integration, BIG-IP DNS handles millions of DNS queries, protects your business from DDoS attacks, and ensures top application performance for users.
BIG-IP DNS routes distributed app traffic to keep pace with changing network and user volumes that can overwhelm data centers during peak traffic times. BIG-IP DNS can also be configured as a full proxy for global load balancing applications and DNS across architectures, as well as across the globe.
BIG-IP DNS services integrate with DNS zone management solutions, increase DNS performance at the network edge, and mask the DNS back-end infrastructure. That translates into higher productivity, server consolidation, faster responses, and protected DNS management.
With network traffic growing exponentially to support new mobile users and web services, service providers need a scalable, secure DNS solution. BIG-IP responds to DNS queries, enables you to optimize your LDNS infrastructure with lower latency—and delivers a better quality of experience.
Manages query responses with multicore scalability, handling spikes in DNS query volumes.
Validates query requests, mitigates malicious communications, absorbs DDoS attacks, and more.
Protects LDNS servers from cache poisoning and man-in-the-middle attacks with real-time DNSSEC.
Supports application requirements across data center and cloud environments while keeping apps available.
Gives you the flexibility to shift traffic to a backup data center and fail over an entire site, or just control the affected apps.
Routes clients to the nearest data center with geolocation-based load balancing for the best user experience.
Ensure the performance and availability of your apps by seamlessly controlling BIG-IP DNS instances from a dedicated management dashboard.
