That was years ago when people thought tweets were just sounds that birds made. That number has since grown significantly. To put usage in perspective, Twitter says that "Every day, the world writes the equivalent of a 10 million page book in Tweets or 8,163 copies of Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace." Few service providers can keep up with that rate of growth, but Dyn has always been up for the challenge. Big Networks Need A Small World As Twitter and other clients look to expand their technological infrastructure, Dyn's ever-expanding anycast network provides a unique opportunity for all companies to optimise their DNS solution. Managed DNS reduces costs, increases efficiencies and most importantly, speeds up your network's response time. Website owners who trust Dyn don't worry about losing revenue due to downtime. You shouldn't either. "For high-traffic networks, downtime and sluggish response are killers," said Kyle York, GM & VP, Business & Product Strategy at Oracle Dyn. "Our Managed DNS ensures uptime and increases network speed. Many of our clients rely 100 percent on the internet to operate their business and our technology simply makes their service better for their clients." Dyn's globally redundant network is reinforced by the power of IP anycast DNS, a method that ensures data is routed to the best location as determined by the network setup. By tweaking carriers, bandwidth and, geographic location, Dyn reduces latency to an absolute minimum and ensures the network always works wherever you are and however you connect to it. Whether you're the next big thing or already a global sensation, you need a partner that has the solutions for every stage of growth. Trust someone who has been there, done that, and continues to ensure that uptime is the bottom line for all.
