Designing DNS for Availability and Resilience Against DDoS Attacks

Managed DNS

Fast DNS provides organizations with an authoritative DNS service to connect end users with
their websites and other applications. While much attention is paid to performance, organizations
often overlook the importance of availability and resilience for DNS—especially against DDoS
attacks that seek to disrupt the service and prevent end users from connecting. Akamai designed
Fast DNS to remain available through the largest DDoS attacks, with unmatched global scale, a
segmented IP Anycast architecture, and multiple DDoS controls including the ability to leverage
other web performance services when necessary.

Offered as a managed DNS service, Fast DNS provides an optimal combination of performance and availability to always connect organizations with their end users.
