OpenDNS and Google Aim At Speeding Up The Internet


OpenDNS, the world's largest provider of DNS and Internet security services, Google and leading Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) today announced the Global Internet Speedup initiative, a worldwide effort to improve Internet speeds and enable faster access to information.

The Global Internet Speedup enhances the way communication within the Domain Name System (DNS) is handled. The DNS plays a critical role in delivering content fast, acting as one of the first pieces of the routing infrastructure that helps users get to content quickly and is the cornerstone for every major CDN. CDNs and other large Internet services typically direct the user to the nearest content server based on the location of the user's DNS server rather than the location of the user themselves. This routing may result in slower Web page load times and decreased Internet performance if a user is not located near their DNS server.

The joint initiative announced today solves the problem by enabling CDNs to make more intelligent routing decisions based on the approximate location of a user rather than just the location of the user's OpenDNS or Google Public DNS server. Regardless of where Internet users are located around the world, or which OpenDNS or Google Public DNS datacenter DNS requests are being served from, users connecting to participating Internet sites and CDNs? content through OpenDNS and Google Public DNS will automatically be connected to the nearest or most optimal CDN server.

"We're very excited to team with Google and the world's leading CDNs on such a significant improvement to the speed of the Internet," said OpenDNS CEO David Ulevitch. "The initiative we've partnered on is based on open standards that any other network can adopt, making this technology available to anyone. We're proud to be leading the charge together with the world's leading Internet companies and CDNs and we?re stoked to be delivering speed improvements to our more than 30 million users and thousands of enterprise businesses.?

"Google is committed to making the Internet faster - not just for our users, but for everyone," said Dave Presotto, Distinguished Engineer at Google. "We will do that any way we can, by improving protocols, browsers, client software, and networks."

Currently, the ISPs and CDNs onboard with the initiative are Edgecast, Cloudflare, BitGravity, CDNetworks, and Comodo.
