Canadian web services firm Korax has selected the .CA Anycast DNS solution to deliver DNS infrastructure services to thousands of customers in Canada. Korax deployed Anycast DNS rapidly to add a resilient and reliable DNS to its service offerings, improving protection from DDoS attacks and reducing latency for Canadian websites.
- Korax needed a DNS infrastructure with exceptional uptime that could help protect a high-profile portfolio of customers from DDoS attacks. .CA Anycast DNS delivers a prudent layer of protection for websites or web applications serving the Canadian market.
- With support from the .CA team, Korax was able to turn-on the service for thousands of customers in a matter of minutes. .CA Anycast DNS is deployed using a simple API or bulk upload that allows hosting companies to integrate the service quickly into their administrative back-end. This newly resilient infrastructure helps all of Korax’s customers, from the largest with over 10,000 employees to smaller local retailers.
- As a Canadian hosting company, Korax and its customers see the value of an Internet infrastructure that keeps Canadian data close to home from an initial web query, through a visitor’s interaction on the website. By linking a network of DNS servers throughout Canada to a set of global nodes, the .CA Anycast DNS offers the most comprehensive and responsive DNS infrastructure for companies doing business in Canada.
- Damaging cyberattacks can happen to anyone and companies managing high-value web properties need advanced tools to help mitigate online threats. This is especially true for organizations with highly political or transactional websites, such as election campaigns, police forces or e-commerce companies.
We had been searching for an anycast DNS solution to integrate into our service. None of the other offerings we looked at were quite right for us. Anycast DNS came along at the right time, and it was a perfect fit: a Canadian solution, backed by the expertise of CIRA, designed to protect Canadian traffic and deliver the best performance to our clients’ Canadian visitors. We’re excited to provide the benefits of Anycast DNS to all our customers, and we applaud CIRA’s initiatives to foster a stronger and more resilient Canadian Internet infrastructure.
