Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Dyn Managed DNS

Oracle Dyn Managed DNS is used for external facing service endpoints. It's a cloud-based service that's simple to setup and manage. It supports sufficient level of automation. It publishes all external facing DNS information and it's used across the whole organization. It makes our services available to our customers on the internet. It provides a reliable DNS lookup service that can scale and perform.

Pros

  • It's easy to add or modify DNS records.
  • It has an API that support sufficient level of automation.
  • It has adequate intelligence to manage traffic.

Cons

  • RESTFUL API can be expanded to support scripting and automation.
  • More pre-built objects and functions in SDK to faster development.
  • Pre-built integration points with web applications.
  • It's easy to setup and manage.
  • It provides reliable DNS service for external facing service endpoints.
  • It's not well suited for internal DNS lookup.
These products serve different demands. Both of them are good products. They are not open sourced software. They are fee-based products. Oftentimes, it's easier to setup and manage a fee-based product, but business values can vary dramatically. However, these products can compliment each others when they are deployed appropriately to support web applications.
Oracle Dyn Managed DNS is a good selection in the market place. It's easy to setup and manage. Given the characteristics of the product, it's not very common that one has to engage support. When support is necessary, the overall flow is intuitive. The support staff are knowledgeable. They are responsive more often than not.
Oracle Dyn Managed DNS is a good selection in the market place. It's a good product primarily for external facing service endpoints. The web interface is relatively simple. The RESTFUL API is adequate, but it can be improved for additional functionality. The same can be said about the SDK. Overall, it's a product for moderate sized organization.
Oracle Dyn Managed DNS is a good fit for moderate sized web sites. It's easy to setup and manage. Web application companies can quickly deploy and publish their applications on the internet. It supports remote management and various integration points. As it's a cloud-based DNS service, it's mostly suitable for external facing service endpoints. It would require more work when deployed for internal DNS service.
