UEL has three physical campuses, at Stratford, Docklands, and University Square, Stratford--and a growing online learning community, with students logging in from all over the world, including the Middle East, Southeast Asia and Australasia, as well as the UK. The University has an ambitious agenda for its future success and growth focusing on the delivery of high-quality teaching through both traditional learning and by building its online presence. The eye-catching UEL main website and various microsites are built on Oracle Dyn partner Sitecore's industry-leading content management platform. The Challenge – Managing DNS with Limited Staff Expertise "Our two data centres are located at Docklands and Stratford," notes Bernard Englefield, UEL Senior Network Administrator. "We manage quite a lot of our own infrastructure in-house, including our main website and services like email." With a tradition of managing their infrastructure in-house, why did UEL turn to Dyn for Managed DNS? "We have limited resources with the needed expertise for supporting DNS," Englefield responds. "We needed a simpler method, where more of our staff would be capable of managing DNS simply and easily. That brought us to Dyn in 2012. Dyn features such as being able to provide Active Failover and protection against DNS-based DDoS attacks also played into our decision." Oracle Dyn Case Study: THE UNIVERSITY OF EAST LONDON
