FireHost Unites With Dyn to Advance DNS by Way of Secure Cloud Hosting

Companies Prepare to Announce Progressive, Joint Product Releases in the Near Future

DALLAS, TX and MANCHESTER, NH--(Marketwire - Aug 1, 2012) -   FireHost, the secure cloud hosting company, and Dyn, managed DNS and Email Delivery experts, have partnered to boost infrastructure and customer reach for both companies. FireHost is the only public cloud company that Dyn entrusts with its hosting needs while Dyn becomes the exclusive DNS provider for FireHost customers.

FireHost will benefit from Dyn's best-in-class DNS products. Building Dyn's products into FireHost's current lineup will allow the two companies to synchronize in the creation of affordable and secure business continuity solutions for their customers. These new, packaged products will be added to FireHost's secure cloud hosting solutions and will start to be announced in the forthcoming weeks.

The unification will appeal to the needs of SaaS providers, and companies with HIPAA and PCI compliance needs, which makes up the bulk of FireHost's current customer base.

"Prior to partnering with FireHost, Dyn relied upon a globally deployed in-house infrastructure to support its hosting needs. To convince the internal team to move to a different provider other than ourselves was a major hurdle; however, FireHost's fully managed services were extremely appealing to us," said Kyle York, CRO at Dyn. "It was of utmost importance to Dyn to partner with a secure host that could deliver enterprise-grade security and performance for ultimate uptime, as our tagline is Uptime Is The Bottom Line. We are looking ahead to a continued, strong partnership with FireHost."

Additionally, FireHost is helping Dyn fuse together secure, reliable hosting and caching content on the edge, which allows Dyn to create a highly effective content delivery network. Dyn's Web performance has enjoyed 4X improvement due to FireHost's performance enhancing features built specifically for cloud environments. Dyn operates 17 of its own data centers worldwide with at least two more coming online in 2012.

As FireHost also continues to expand to data centers around the world, Dyn will be utilizing these to further increase redundancy and continue to improve performance of its Web infrastructure in new regions.

"Dyn is an ideal partner for FireHost. Our infrastructures are complementary and together we achieve the most secure, redundant, scalable and innovative platforms available anywhere," said Bruce MacFadyen, COO at FireHost. "We're excited to unveil our soon-to-be-released products and look forward to a long and expanding relationship with Dyn."
