Step into the cloud-native world of DNS with OX PowerDNS Cloud Control.
Increase scalability, reduce costs and use more efficient ways to manage your DNS. Benefit from DNS containerization, automation, orchestration and lifecycle management, monitoring and alerting, combined in a single interface for configuration and operations.
All based on market-leading cloud-native technologies, combined with the proven OX PowerDNS approach.
All releases of OX PowerDNS are available as Docker images through a private registry. This lets you use your system resources efficiently, save storage and reduce budget, compared to legacy DNS technology on VMs.
MONITORING & ALERTING
Given the criticality of DNS to the overall internet experience, monitoring and alerting are particularly important. Prometheus enables metrics and alerts with OX PowerDNS, enabling DNS teams to benefit from the combined learnings from PowerDNS deployments around the world. Grafana visualizes data for single view graphs and dashboards.
ORCHESTRATION & LIFECYCLE MANAGEMENT
Cloud Control is based on the standard for container orchestration – Kubernetes. It ships with Helm charts to easily deploy and configure OX PowerDNS components, and Custom Resource Definitions and Operators for custom workloads.
CONFIGURATION & OPERATIONS
OX PowerDNS Cloud Control’s ‘single pane of glass’ brings containerization, orchestration, monitoring and alerting together into one interface. Operators benefit from a graphical way to visualize, configure, monitor and even deploy cloud-native OX PowerDNS software.
Cloud-native DNS with OX PowerDNS Cloud Control
The best way of addressing today’s DNS requirements
High scalability & flexibility
DNS is required to be almost infinitely horizontally scalable, with elastic scaling for unpredictable demand (media, sporting events, pandemics).
Geographic distribution with Edge computing
DNS services located close to users running in hundred or even thousands of locations to meet latency targets such as in 5G infrastructure.
Automation, orchestration & lifecycle management
Sophisticated automation and orchestration to avoid massive operational efforts when running services remotely in several locations, with ultra-reliability and low latency.
Containerization to eliminate VM overhead
Containerization handles the restriction of Edge Compute hardware when shared with other services and run on bare-metal VMs.
Minimizing the costs and resource input associated with deploying large numbers of servers at many geographic locations is critical to ensure commercial viability.
