DNS & Server Load Balancing (GSLB.me) API joins Mashape
GSLB.me is a cloud based DNS and Global Server Load Balancing solution that provides full authoritative DNS services and DNS-based geographical traffic balancing, failover, high availability and geographical routing.
The DNS protocol is used to associate IP addresses to hostnames in order to make Internet resources reachable. Static DNS returns one or more IP addresses associated to one hostname. However, static DNS has no way to understand if your website, application, or data center is alive and reachable or not, and has no way to understand if they are performing properly according to your service levels. As a result, traditional DNS systems cannot provide a consistent, always-available user experience.
GSLB.me’s API is a fully dynamic DNS solution that monitors your datacenters and servers in order to provide consistent access to your websites and applications to your customers and users. The API replies to DNS queries by returning the best available IP address(es) based on how your website/application is performing and based on dynamic criteria such as your customer / client geographical position.
