Wed May 16 14:16:13 PDT 2001 — We completed the upgrades of our local DNS servers yesterday afternoon. We now have three new dedicated DNS servers on our local network and are currently securing a facility for a fourth off-site server on the East Coast to increase the resiliency of our DNS services, especially in the event of network outages here at our NOC — or the West Coast in general.
The new DNS servers are considerably more responsive than the two old servers and have significantly more robust hardware beneath them. You may notice faster DNS resolution times and more responsive web browsing. We’ve published a brief white paper on the new DNS servers at www.sonic.net/network/ along with a link to our public network statistics. If you have any questions we’ll be happy to respond to them in news:sonic.net
