Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Dyn Managed DNS

It is used in our department to facilitate access to our customers' firewalls and routers using DDNS instead of requiring a static IP from the ISP. It gives us an excellent centralized location for DNS configuration and allows us to quickly and efficiently update, add, or delete locations as necessary.
  • It is extremely easy to update.
  • The search options in the node finder are clunky and cumbersome, requiring an exact match to find a node.
  • It has increased our ability to react quickly to customer requests.
As a managed systems provider, we have a wide variety of vendor endpoints depending on specific client needs and having a DNS service that can work across all of these is a key requirement in our decision making process.
I have never interacted with Oracle Dyn Managed DNS support so I have no basis on which to rank it.
As this is the DNS service I have used for most of my career, I can not really compare it to other options. I will however say that the user interface could be improved. The ease of locating a specific node quickly and making small changes could be better. I don't want to have to click through three or four menus to locate a node because the ISP changed their IP address. I'd like to be able to enter a portion of the node id into the search on the home page and get directly to that node.
I have had no issue with the availability of our various domains due to Oracle. All issues have been endpoint hardware/software issue. The overall reliability of the platform allows us to focus our troubleshooting on those devices knowing that the DNS service is very unlikely the issue.
It is an excellent platform for managing a large number of sites over a large number of zones. Probably less appropriate for a smaller enterprise space.
