How does our solution work?

The NS1 platform transforms DNS into an intelligent and automated orchestration system in your application delivery stack, giving you new ways to manage traffic, balance load, achieve resiliency and modernise infrastructure.

It automatically leverages real-time user, network, infrastructure and application telemetry through powerful filter chain technology, to send customers to the optimal end point, improving customer experience. When NS1 receives a DNS query, all potential answers to the query are looked up. Within microseconds, answers are passed through a “chain” of filters, each performing a simple operation on the list of answers.
