About CIRA Anycast DNS
BCNET has partnered with the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) to offer members quality Domain Name System (DNS) protection. The service is comprised of two clouds that span 13 locations worldwide. At these locations, CIRA peers directly with over 5,000 networks at some of the world’s largest Internet Exchange Points (IXPs). This ensures quick query times and multiple resilient routes. As a secondary service, organizations can add extra performance and redundancy while continuing to manage the primary DNS safe behind a corporate firewall or with the vendor of their choice.
CIRA Anycast DNS is dependable, distributed, defensive and domestic
Anycast DNS is easy to use with three options:
- Provision, monitor and manage via an easy-to-use web management console
