[ NNSquad ] DNS vs. CDN


http://bit.ly/cbU2T3  (Sajal Kayan)

Unfortunately, not only poor performance but other (often undesirable,
from the standpoint of many users) manipulations that some ISPs
perform on their DNS services are part of what's driven the move to
services like OpenDNS and Google DNS in the first place.

But there are clearly other mechanisms that could be employed to
better establish users' locations for CDN (Content Distribution
Networks) homing purposes, and the example of DNS vs. CDN is simply
another indication of DNS' rapidly increasing obsolescence vis-a-vis
the Internet of the 21st century.
