Fun With Anycast (An Oldie But A Goodie)

From Three Practical Ways to Improve Your Network by Kevin Miller.

I never got a chance to try this (specifically the Anycast‘d DNS Services) at my old job at a network service provider.

The network infrastructure lead was kind of an asshole. He didn’t want to do a DNS upgrade project, but he didn’t want me to either.

After three thwarted attempts I gave up.

My understanding is the non-anycast parts of the projects (earlier phases) are taking place now (involving the very cool DNS Management software from Men and Mice). My current employer needs a DNS tuneup, so maybe I will get a second try at this.
