I don't know about you, but sometimes when I think about 2020 it feels like an overwhelming gut punch. In our professional and personal lives, so many facets have been turned upside down and inside out, that oftentimes I have thought to myself, "Is this year over yet?" There is so much uncertainty in the world, that making monumental decisions right now just doesn't feel right. But I'm here to tell you that if something is broken, now is the time to fix it.
In 2020, a lot of major brands have been met with much turmoil when it comes to their DNS provider and services. There have been serious outages with some major players like Amazon Web Services in October of 2019. IBM Cloud also suffered a prolonged outage, and let’s not forget Cloudflare in July of 2020. This downtime has cost businesses (maybe even yours) hundreds of thousands of dollars, on top of so much that has already been lost this year due to the pandemic. It's like going to school when you were a kid, and you keep giving the bully your lunch money. You know time and time again that the bully is going to return, and you are just there for the ride. You've seen the movies and read the books - the bully ends up with egg on their face every time.
Constellix has proven itself with 100% uptime. Even in the event of an outage, our DNS Failover service makes sure your web and application servers are still accessible. You can think of it as a form of insurance for your website or application, and having insurance can help save you a lot of money in the long run. I recently visited a well-known email marketing website, that will remain anonymous, and their servers were down. Now, if I were the president of that company, something tells me they had a staggering amount of unhappy customers that day. Not only did they end up losing business, but those businesses who were trying to send out marketing emails via their website also lost money. The money pit is deep, and the trickle effect is like an avalanche that I want to stay far away from.
