What is Constellix?

A revolutionary cloud-based traffic management suite, brought to you by the same team that engineered DNS Made Easy.

DNS Made Easy (and other providers)


    RFC Compliant

  • Cloud technology has created demands for service providers that have forced them to abandon RFC’s. This calls for completely new architecture, built for the cloud. This is the main reason why Constellix was created rather than revamping DNS Made Easy for modern demands.

    GeoDNS

  • Constellix is unfettered by RFC’s, which opens the doors for more advanced traffic routing techniques.
  • Integrated Monitoring

  • Constellix includes a robust monitoring suite based on the tools our team has been using for 15 years to keep our network online.
  • Powered by ITO

  • ITO (Internet Traffic Optimization) services are a new breed of traffic management tools that use current traffic conditions to inform routing behavior in real time.

GeoDNS Network


The Constellix network uses IP Anycast + technology to automatically route queries to regional servers.

IP Filters


You decide who can access your site and who can’t based on their location, IP address (IPv4 and IPv6), ASN (Autonomous System Network), or EDNS client subnet.

GeoProximity


Our GeoIP engine to automatically runs a proximity search to identify which servers are closest to your end-users for the fastest response.

Better GTD


Constellix is the only provider that lets you combine GTD with GeoDNS services to correct wrong lookups due to poor peering practices.

Paired with real-time traffic monitoring

Constellix was engineered for ITO (Internet Traffic Optimization), a new breed of traffic management that uses real-time connectivity metrics to make routing decisions.

ITO operates at the root of the Internet, manipulating how traffic is directed on the DNS level. All decisions are made based on current user metrics gathered from our Sonar monitoring nodes. In the future, metrics will also be gathered from RUM (Real User Monitoring) beacon so that routing decisions result in the most efficient path for each user.

Eventually, decisions will be made based on the combined results from our RUM (Real User Monitoring) community.

How ITO Works

Monitor

  • Sonar monitoring nodes check the health of all servers in the network.
  • Our RUM beacon captures response times, traffic load, and connection type from Sonar nodes located in dozens of strategically places locations around the world.
  • You can setup alerts to be notified of performance changes as they are happening.

Analyze

  • Metrics gathered from Sonar nodes are analyzed in our RUM tool where you can see the aspects of your Internet presence that need to be optimized: on-page content, CDN, ISP Efficiency, Regional/locale specific issues.
  • Real-Time Statistics (RTS): See your incoming queries as they are happening in real time! You can use this tool to anticipate and identify DDoS attacks.

Route

  • Sonar metrics are used to alter routing behavior for Failover services and ITO pools.
  • Coming Soon! Traffic is automatically rerouted to the better performing server.
