Oracle has agreed to buy Dyn to optimize its IaaS and PaaS offering. Dyn is a DNS and Internet performance provider that monitors, controls and optimizes cloud applications and services to provide faster access.
By adding Dyn’s solutions to its portfolio, Oracle is expanding its cloud computing platform and providing a single, complete centre for its IaaS and PaaS offering.
With this agreement, Oracle aims to make its customers cloud services beneficiaries of optimized cloud infrastructure and improved costs, by better knowing peak demand for their services.
“Oracle already offers IaaS and PaaS solutions for companies that build and run their Internet applications and cloud services,” said Thomas Kurian, president of Oracle product development.
“Dyn’s highly scalable, global DNS is a key component and a natural extension to our cloud computing platform,” he added.
“Oracle cloud customers will have unique access to Internet performance information, which helps optimize infrastructure costs, maximize application revenue and risk management,” said Kyle York, Strategy Manager at Dyn.
A month ago, the dynamic occupied the headlines of the technology press after suffering a global denial-of-service (DDoS) attack on its DNS infrastructure, which caused online services to be inaccessible. Services that are affected included Twitter, Netflix, Spotify, PayPal or AWS.
