Oracle Snaps Up Internet Performance and Domain Name System Provider Dyn

Oracle has signed an agreement to acquire Dyn, a cloud-based internet performance and domain name system (DNS) provider that monitors, controls, and optimizes internet applications and cloud services to enable faster access, reduced page load times, and higher end user satisfaction.

Dyn’s solution is enabled by a global network that supports 40 billion traffic optimization decisions daily for more than 3,500 enterprise customers, including digital brands such as Netflix, Twitter, Pfizer and CNBC.

According to Oracle, the addition of Dyn’s DNS solution extends the Oracle cloud computing platform and provides enterprise customers with a single approach for IaaS and PaaS

Commenting on the acquisition, Thomas Kurian, president, Product Development, Oracle, said that Oracle already offers enterprise-class IaaS and PaaS for companies building and running internet applications and cloud services, and that Dyn’s global DNS is both a critical core component and a natural extension to Oracle’s cloud computing platform.
