"For high-traffic networks, downtime and sluggish response are killers" – Kyle York GM & VP, Business & Product Strategy at Oracle Dyn Oracle Dyn Case Study: TWITTER How 100% Uptime Helped Twitter Explode When Twitter launched in the summer of 2006, it was a small and unique idea with grand ambitions. 140 character messages called "Tweets"? People following you and you follow back? What's a hashtag? Today, Twitter has become lifeblood of internet culture with over a billion registered users, 300 billion tweets sent, and 330 million monthly active users. Before it became a micro-messaging sensation, Twitter was a Dyn Standard DNS client. As its traffic and queries per second (QPS) grew at an unprecedented rate, Dyn helped Twitter seamlessly transition to the enterprise-level Dyn Managed DNS platform. This allowed Twitter to take advantage of delivering better network performance and traffic management as they grew to incredible heights.
