UltraDNS today announced that it will provide its Managed DNS Service to help optimize Amazon Web site infrastructure.

The move to the UltraDNS solution enables Amazon to offer increased performance and reliability to both retail customers and merchants who rely on the Domain Name System (DNS) directory to initiate their online transactions.

Guaranteed by an industry leading Service Level Agreement (SLA) for 100 percent uptime, the UltraDNS Managed DNS Service directly manages and monitors Amazon's DNS, using a fully fault-tolerant, global directory service. By leveraging advanced routing technologies latent in the UltraDNS global network, Amazon customers' DNS requests are directed to the closest server in the network, enabling the fastest response times to DNS requests. Additionally, changes to DNS data are globally propagated in real-time ensuring end users will have the most up-to-date information to resolve their content requests.

"After extensive testing of the UltraDNS network and directory platform, we found that the Managed DNS Service met our stringent operational and business requirements for this critical infrastructure component," said Chris Pinkham, Vice President of Systems and Network Engineering for Amazon. "Amazon continually seeks to improve the customer shopping experience, and with UltraDNS we are able to ensure that our customers have unparalleled speed and reliability in DNS resolution for Amazon Web sites."

More than 8,000 companies worldwide depend on UltraDNS for Managed DNS Service. UltraDNS solutions improve the performance and manageability over legacy DNS applications by delivering intelligent infrastructure services that enable customers to outsource their DNS requirements while gaining real-time control over their digital brand.

"Our relationship with Amazon aligns the benefits of the UltraDNS platform with Amazon's requirement to achieve 100% availability and sets the technology standards that e-businesses demand for outsourced DNS solutions," said Ben Petro, president and CEO of UltraDNS. "We are very pleased to have been chosen by Amazon to provide critical DNS infrastructure services."
