Eunetworks Supplies Denic for electronic registry of 11 million domain names
DENIC is the central registry for all domains under the Top Level Domain .de, providing an automatic electronic registration system for administering .de domains. In this capacity, DENIC also runs the name servers for .de domains which provide information that is of crucial importance for the operation of the Internet. The operation of this system requires highly sophisticated technology and the highest levels of availability and security. In order to fulfil these exacting requirements, DENIC demanded a provider of superior Internet Transit and premium co-location. euNetworks was one of the few providers capable of fulfilling these demands and providing the 24 x 7 management necessitated.
Under the terms of the agreement, euNetworks will deploy a private fiber network in Frankfurt, redundantly connecting DENIC’s office to their datacenter facilities and exchange points. This highly flexible solution not only enables DENIC with a scalable network for future projected growth but also offers highest levels of availability and security. euNetworks furthermore provided DENIC high standard co-location in euNetworks’ premium datacenter facility in Amsterdam.
Additionally, euNetworks will enable DENIC with premium Internet connectivity via a dedicated Gig-e port, with the ability to burst and scale as demanded. DENIC required the highest levels of reliability, redundancy, flexibility and, above all, scalability to cope with the anticipated future growth. euNetworks, through its global peering agreements, is uniquely positioned to deliver the highest quality IP Transit connectivity with minimum hop, minimum latency and minimum packet loss all under the highest industry service level agreements.
"euNetworks’ ability to provide resilient and reliable communications solutions either over fiber or through our IP network, uniquely positions us as a reliable provider of high performance solutions," said Noel Meaney, Chief Executive Officer, euNetworks. "DENIC as an Internet-centric organisation demands the highest levels of performance and euNetworks warrants the security and availability of our Carrier- grade solutions."
