At Medianova, as the leading CDN in Turkey and the Middle East, we’re always looking for ways to improve networking and routing between senders and receivers. One method of achieving a secure addressing and routing methodology is through the use of Anycast DNS. Many people, even those with good working knowledge of network systems, may not be aware of exactly how Anycast DNS works, so we’re going to explain the basics.
As each user request arising in the digital world has to pass the DNS layer, what a slow DNS means is that your service is slow whatever you do. Anycast DNS is a network addressing and routing methodology in from a single sender are routed to the topologically nearest node in a group of potential receivers, though it may be sent to several nodes, all identified by the same destination address.
This might seem a bit complicated, but it’s really not. The receiver may not be physically closest, but may have the healthiest servers or best routing, wherever would get the data from Point A to Point B the fastest. Google’s 188.8.131.52 IP DNS server also operates with the Anycast DNS method.
As the leading CDN provider of Turkey and the Middle East, Medianova provides 80% faster service compared to foreign companies, with its Anycast DNS services which are integrated with the biggest local operators in Istanbul and Ankara.To learn more about our extensive services, contact us, and we’ll be happy to meet your Internet and Technology needs.
