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. 

Constellix


    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 that uses real-time traffic monitoring to route traffic to the fastest responding endpoint.

Our Network


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

IP Filters


You decide who can or can’t access your endpoints based on their location, IP, 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 the modern web, which demands constant monitoring and updating based on traffic conditions.

ITO uses record pools, which are groups of endpoints you want to return when a user makes a query. ITO can be enabled for A, AAAA, and CNAME record pools. Our Sonar monitoring nodes regularly check the response times of the endpoints in the pool, as often as every 30 seconds. When a user queries that record, DNS will automatically route users to the fastest responding endpoint.

In the future, routing 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 endpoints in the record pool.
  • If a large enough change is detected, you can setup alerts to be notified of the performance changes as they are happening.

analyze

Analyze

  • Performance data is passed to Constellix DNS, which updates the status of each endpoint in the pool.

Route

  • Only the fastest responding endpoint(s) will be returned in the pool, so users can enjoy the fastest load times every time.
