Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Dyn Managed DNS

We use it for the Global Traffic Director feature. It has a good level of reliability and support at the correct price point for us.
  • Direct line to knowledgeable support. Calling in with any issue we have always encountered intelligent and knowledgeable support personnel.
  • Datadog integration is a nice plus.
  • Simple option management for global TD response pool failovers lets us do regional maintenance without worries.
  • The website interface is archaic.
  • The split brain between DynID, contacts and users will leave you scratching your head.
  • Good: Reliable low latency geo balanced DNS.
  • Bad: Contract renewal rules with Oracle are peculiar. Keep your contract start date in mind when renewing/changing services.
Simpler pricing and config than R53, and better support. Significantly ess expensive than UltraDNS.
Calling in gets someone on the line immediately who can answer your questions well.
The Dyn site is not good for 2018.
Solid geoLB, better support and less worry than Route53.
