It’s been an exciting year at Constellix and we’re moving full speed ahead as we enter the first quarter of 2022! In this blog, we’ll recap our expansions and interface upgrades in 2021 and what you can expect to see this year.
Constellix runs on parent company Tiggee LLC’s Triple Anycast network. Each of our nameservers is strategically positioned in top-tier data centers around the world and are company-owned and maintained. . The Constellix platform was introduced to the Tiggee network in 2013, which has grown from a one-person operation with no PoPs to a multi-million dollar corporation with 23 PoPs (and counting), over 3,200+ peers, 300 Gbps of peering capacity, 730 Gbps of transit capacity, and 4TB of DDoS protection.
Because of its self-healing infrastructure and innovative features, Constellix has been able to provide superior reliability, speeds, and creative DNS and Multi-CDN solutions for small and enterprise-level organizations. As the only DNS provider in the industry to never have an outage—9 years and counting—our customers know they can count on us to keep them online.
We are committed to ensuring your organization has the best online experience possible, which is why we continually expand our infrastructure, upgrade existing products, and develop new DNS- and cloud-focused technologies.
Constellix’s network has grown considerably over the last two years. In 2021, users around the globe have benefited from the two additional points of presence (PoP) added by parent company Tiggee LLC:
Our move into Paris, France brought our customers an even greater speed boost for the 67+million residents of France, as well as Western Europe in general.
Toronto was Contellix’s first-ever Canada PoP and was added to the Tiggee network to increase speed and performance for Toronto and the surrounding areas, which encompasses a population of more than 6.5 million people.
Another major addition to the Tiggee/Constellix family in 2021 was the acquisition of PerfOps, the industry-leading enterprise data monitoring suite for DNS and Cloud performance. With PerfOps under the Tiggee umbrella, Constellix customers will benefit from the company’s access to even larger and in-depth data sets, which can be used to troubleshoot and improve the entire Tiggee network.
Constellix launched its new Billing management interface, which features a fresh new look and a more intuitive design. It’s now easier than ever to manage your DNS invoices, view payment history, and manage payment methods, as well as add users and groups with special privileges based on billing events.
Another major update in the Constellix suite was a complete redesign to the User Management Console, complete with useful upgrades. New features include the ability to require two-factor authentication for all sub-users in your account, set custom password requirements, and the option to have two API keys at one time. See our blog + video for an overview of changes and feature functionality.
Along with our infrastructure expansion and interface upgrades, we also developed new industry tools to help IT teams troubleshoot and test their servers and networks:
In 2020, Tiggee added two points of presence and a new monitoring location to upgrade its already extensive network:
The Tiggee network added DNS monitoring nodes in Seoul, South Korea to address customer needs. This expansion allows domain owners to track hosts, run traceroutes, and perform instant checks.
A major addition to the Constellix Network in 2020 was our expansion into South Africa. This PoP significantly improved speeds and performance for our partners in this area. perf
With India being the second-largest online market in the world, an expansion into Mumbai was a top priority for the Tiggee network in 2020. This PoP services the entire 1.4+ billion population of the country and its surrounding areas and has been a great benefit to businesses in the region.
Network and infrastructure upgrades will continue to be a priority for Constellix in 2022. The needs of our customers are at the forefront of every decision we make. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come:
The next PoP set to go live in the first quarter of this year is in Stockholm, Sweden. This PoP has been highly requested and will provide a significant improvement to our already fast speeds in Northern and Eastern Europe.
Along with its continued plans for expansion into new areas, the Tiggee network is also upgrading some of its current PoPs. These upgrades will increase performance as well as provide enhanced security and protection from DDoS attacks. PoPs in the works for upgrades in 2022 include:
We will continue to upgrade the Constellix UI and add new features based on your feedback and specialized use cases.
The last several years have been eventful and productive at Constellix and we look forward to elevating your experience in 2022 and beyond.
