NS1 Delivers Core Network Services to Distributed Edge with Cloud-Managed DDI

 NS1, a leader in application traffic intelligence and automation, unveiled its cloud-managed solution for DNS, DHCP and IP address management (DDI), delivered through the NS1 Connect platform.

NS1 Cloud-Managed DDI enables organizations to deliver core network services across their distributed network footprint with the agility of software-based deployment, the scale of cloud-native operations, and the operating efficiency of SaaS management. With this release, NS1 offers a unified solution for Managed DNS, DDI and intelligent application traffic management built on a converged platform designed for dynamic, distributed application, and network environments.

Modern distributed enterprises managing multiple branches or locations must securely, reliably and intelligently connect their applications, customers, employees and devices everywhere — from the edge to the cloud. Traditional network services are centralized, siloed and manually operated, making them ill-suited to meet the needs of modern businesses. With rigid deployment requirements, limited scalability and programmability, management overhead, inadequate integrations, and a lack of global intelligence and visibility, these old solutions hold back innovation and connectivity.

NS1 Cloud-Managed DDI extends the value of NS1 Connect, the industry’s first cloud-native platform purpose-built to connect applications and audiences across dynamic and distributed application and network footprints. It delivers unparalleled operating leverage for IT teams, empowering them to execute with the speed, scalability and reliability demanded by today’s most innovative, global enterprises.

With NS1 Cloud-Managed DDI, network services can be deployed in a lightweight, software-defined manner on existing edge infrastructure and cloud platforms. Comprehensive APIs and toolkit integrations allow network services to be dynamically scaled and orchestrated with cloud-native automation and speed. Distributed locations — remote offices, retail locations, coffee shops, hotels, hospitals, and other edge environments — can operate independently even if connectivity to central service hubs is disrupted.

The SaaS delivery model allows for cloud management that boosts operational efficiencies and minimizes service disruptions due to upgrades and maintenance.
