Migrating your DNS Solution

OX PowerDNS is an attractive replacement for your current DNS platform. However, replacing such a vital component of your network may be daunting. We have experience with migrations from a wide range of other DNS platforms and developed a set of steps that deliver a fully safe and validated transition.

In a typical migration, we will:

  • Make an inventory of your currently deployed configuration
  • Deploy new OX PowerDNS infrastructure on the agreed platforms
     
  • Validate that all parts can be matched by OX PowerDNS
  • Replay the previously recorded traffic, and report on new performance levels
  • Suggest hardware and operating system configuration for your new OX PowerDNS deployment
  • Train your staff on the differences between the old and the new solution
  • Record existing DNS traffic and report on current performance levels in terms of packets/s, query drop rate, average response times
  • Perform follow-ups to wrinkle out post-migration issues
