Today, Oracle announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire Dyn, the cloud-based Internet performance and DNS provider. Dyn was recently in the news after it was hit by a large-scale internet attack in October that left dozens of popular websites unreachable for parts of the day.
Thomas Kurian, President, Product Development, Oracle said :
Oracle already offers enterprise-class IaaS and PaaS for companies building and running Internet applications and cloud services.
Dyn’s immensely scalable and global DNS is a critical core component and a natural extension to our cloud computing platform.
Oracle said that the deal gives its clients access to unique Internet performance data that can help them optimize infrastructure costs and maximize revenue. Dyn claims that it works with companies to help their websites load faster
Kyle York, Chief Strategy Officer, Dyn said :
Oracle cloud customers will have unique access to Internet performance information that will help them optimize infrastructure costs, maximize application and website-driven revenue, and manage risk.
We are excited to join Oracle and bring even more value to our customers as part of Oracle’s cloud computing platform.
