3 Ways Gaming Companies Can Leverage DNS to Their Advantage

In the incredibly complex world of gaming development, network engineers and application developers come up against a unique set of challenges. Aside from simply having a compelling product, performance and uptime are two of the most mission-critical aspects to keeping users happy. When either one is lacking, gaming companies see an immediate, negative impact on reputation and revenue.

Solving these challenges with low hanging fruit, like DNS, are often discounted or overlooked. However, DNS technology has made vast strides in the past few years and has the potential to make a significant impact on network reliability, performance, and ultimately - end-user experience.

In this webinar, we'll explore three ways gaming companies can leverage the 30-year old protocol to their advantage and look at specific use cases that may apply to some of the challenges you are facing today.

  • Building a Resilient, Distributed Enterprise with Cloud-Managed DDI Recorded: Oct 7 2021 26 mins
    Damiaan Habets, Ajay Gupta, Devin Bernosky
    To succeed in today’s digital first world, enterprises are accelerating adoption of new technology paradigms like cloud computing, microservices architectures, IOT/OT, new operating models like DevOps, NetOps, and new cloud-centric commercial models.

    However, legacy core network infrastructure - like DNS, DHCP, and IPAM - can’t keep up. They're unable to provide the flexibility for local compute and autonomy, with centralized control at the distributed edge, that modern network configurations require.

    Join NS1 for a webinar on why enterprise network environments are evolving, the coming changes to plan for, and why your approach to your core network services needs to change to unlock the full value of digital transformation initiatives.

    Attendees can expect to learn:

    How enterprise network environments have evolved, and changes to prepare for

    -Why traditional DDI solutions no longer cut it

    -Why bringing core network services into the cloud improves network resilience

  • Automation at the Distributed Edge Starts with a Single Source of Truth Recorded: Oct 7 2021 27 mins
    Chris Buijs, Ajay Gupta, Jeremy Stretch
    If you find it increasingly difficult to meet business objectives with your current network infrastructure, you’re not alone - nearly 80% of businesses today say that they can’t meet application delivery requirements with their current infrastructure. The pandemic has only accelerated this trend with remote work and increasing reliance on digital channels.

    In response, your organization is investing in digital transformation initiatives like adopting hybrid network environments, embracing the distributed edge, and so on. Yet without a single source of truth for your networking assets and devices, how can you effectively manage and provision this environment?

    Join NS1 for a discussion on why network resource management is now increasingly important to your digital transformation initiatives - and why creating a single source of truth for your network infrastructure is a key part of embracing the distributed edge.

    In this webinar, attendees can expect to learn:

    -How IRM and DCIM factor into creating a full-stack network single source of truth along with IPAM
    -How NetBox Cloud can be used to create a network single source of truth for distributed enterprises and help manage the distributed edge
    -How NetBox Cloud differs from open source NetBox, and why it accelerates digital transformation initiatives at distributed enterprise
  • The Conundrum of DDI and Zero Trust Recorded: May 13 2021 32 mins
    Chris Buijs, EMEA Field CTO, NS1
    Enterprise application delivery environments are increasingly complex, distributed, and targeted by a growing number of sophisticated cyber attacks. The Zero Trust model of security theoretically provides a better way to protect today’s network, yet it faces obstacles to adoption by enterprises, particularly with DevOps teams.

    That’s because the speed at which DevOps teams are required to operate creates an environment where anything that slows them down is seen as a deterrent. And many of the networking tools in use today - such as DDI (DNS, DHCP, and IPAM) - are inflexible, built on legacy hardware, and generally perceived as a roadblock or afterthought by DevOps.

    However, without these tools, DevOps teams will not be able to ensure the network services they are using are secure, leaving the enterprise vulnerable to outages, downtime or data breaches. Organizations need to think of DDI not as a roadblock, but as a tool that can seamlessly integrate with security policies, ensure network services across the environment meet security requirements. Or in other words, enable true Zero Trust security architectures.

    In this webcast, NS1’s Field CTO Chris Buijs will discuss why having a rock solid DDI platform enables DevSecOps teams to successfully implement Zero Trust security, without slowing down deployment cycles.

    Join us to learn more about:
    - What the role is (or should be) of DDI in the a ZeroTrusted world
    - What DDI provides and how it enriches Zero Trust with critical network and end-user asset information
    - How it provides programmatic access to network services and its data
    - How it can be used to steer network-transactions against policies before sensitive data is transferred

    Who Should Attend:
    - DevOps, NetOps, SecOps
    - SRE (Site Reliability Engineer), Network Engineer, IT architect, Security Engineer, Application Engineers
    - CTO, CIO, CISO’s or other leaders responsible for leading digital transformation at their company

  • Enabling Zero Trust Infrastructures Recorded: Sep 9 2020 50 mins
    Terry Berstein, Director, PM | Bipin Mistry, Sr. Director, PM | Sanjay Ramnath, VP Product Marketing
    Risk Based Security reported 3,813 security breaches in the first 6 months of 2019, exposing over 4.1 billion records. It represented a 54% increase over the previous year. As networks grow more complex and users increase daily, security risks will happen more frequently leaving enterprises no choice but to embrace zero trust security. And they needed to adopt it, yesterday.

    Organizations adopting zero trust principles must extend the framework to all parts of their infrastructure for it to be truly effective. In this webinar, attendees will learn about how modern application and access networking solutions play a key role in enabling zero trust architectures.
  • How to Run a Video War Room: Real-Time QoE Monitoring with Mux Recorded: Sep 3 2020 22 mins
    Cyril Duprat, Director of Business Development, Mux
    Scenario: Interior, a war room, unfathomable graphs on the wall blinking.

    A twitter timeline is shown. Tweets start flying by complaining of buffering. A woman looks up from her laptop, underlighting her face. A red phone rings; the CEO just experienced rebuffering.

    Woman: "Mother of god".

    A look of panic shoots across her face. She opens the Mux dashboard.

    Woman: "Oh, it's just Akafrontly playing up again. Easy fix. Good thing the Mux Dashboard helps me see real time QoE data, and lets me drill down into what’s causing the problem".

    She types furiously for a few seconds and the problem resolves.

    Friends and colleagues cheer. The woman is promoted, and the stock price doubles. Her husband cooks her favorite dinner that night and her children do their homework without complaining.

  • DNSSEC With Multiple Providers - EU Recorded: Aug 26 2020 21 mins
    Shumon Huque, Principal Software Engineer, Salesforce
    DNSSEC is a system to verify the authenticity of data in the DNS, and allows us to detect DNS spoofing and cache poisoning. Many organizations today leverage multiple distinct DNS providers to serve their DNS zones, for increased redundancy and survivability. Deploying DNSSEC in such an environment presents challenges when each provider signs zone data with their own keys.

    In this talk, we will give an overview of DNSSEC, and describe joint work we have done with NS1 to develop a system to successfully enable "Multi-Signer" DNSSEC deployments.
