Oracle Corp. today announced that it would buy web-service provider Dyn, which was recently hit with a cyber attack that closed off the internet to millions of users.
The company, based in New Hampshire, is among a handful of companies operating domain-name systems that help direct traffic across the internet. Dyn has more than 3,500 customers including Netflix, Twitter, and CNBC, making tens of billions of online traffic optimizing decisions daily.
"Oracle already offers enterprise-class IaaS and PaaS for companies building and running Internet applications and cloud services," said Thomas Kurian, President, Product Development, Oracle. "Dyn's immensely scalable and global DNS is a critical core component and a natural extension to our cloud computing platform."
"Oracle cloud customers will have unique access to Internet performance information that will help them optimize infrastructure costs, maximize application and website-driven revenue, and manage risk," said Kyle York, Chief Strategy Officer, Dyn. "We are excited to join Oracle and bring even more value to our customers as part of Oracle's cloud computing platform."
