Collaborating with Neustar means OpenDNS is now not only one of the largest recursive DNS services on the planet, but also the most up-to-date.
Neustar also will create software clients that integrate with all popular recursive DNS server software including ISC BIND, Unbound and PowerDNS; the Neustar software clients will be released under an open source license.
has an entirely different perspective and hopes to lock arms tightly with Google Public DNS, as a Dynect Platform authoritative solution mixed with Google recursive DNS
resolvers, would make websites and online applications faster than ever for an end user.
The IP address will either already be in the recursive DNS server's cache, or the server will query the Internet's authoritative DNS servers to get the IP address.
Despite this, the recursive DNS infrastructure of the Internet has received little attention from the technical community, and has generally been left to ISPs to maintain and upgrade on a "best efforts" basis.
We are now leveraging our experience and expertise to address the recursive DNS infrastructure, which has become a major impediment to Internet performance as well as one of its major security exposures.
NeuStar has leveraged its position as the leading provider of authoritative DNS managed services to provide the Internet with a revolutionary approach to recursive DNS.
As a third-party hosted service, Ultra Recursive DNS delivers unparalleled speed and reliability because it runs on UltraDNS' proprietary directory infrastructure platform, which can deliver users to their queried destinations more quickly than local recursive servers.
Standard best practices call for the recursive DNS server and authoritative DNS server to be separate entities on the network, to separate functionality and reduce the risk of total failure.
Ultra Recursive Service eliminates this dilemma with a robust, hosted recursive DNS solution that acts as a local recursive server, offering performance benefits throughout large enterprises as well as to end-user customers of ISPs.
