So what are Oracle's plans for Dyn?
Make it non free?
As a Dyn user I and I am sure many others would like to know how Oracle are going to mess it up.
Oracle is buying Dyn, the internet infrastructure outfit whose A-list customers were struck by a global DDoS from internet-attached "things" in October. The software giant is buying Dynamic Network Services (Dyn) to speed up cloud computing traffic. Financial terms were not disclosed Dyn's platform controls and optimises …
It's pay-for for anything interesting but if you had an account from back in the day and paid anything, you get a lot more benefits than you would now.
But, to be honest, I'm now just looking for something else because Oracle will ruin it like everything else they touch.
Worst case, I do some wasted research.
Best case, I've already gone elsewhere by the time it goes downhill.
Yikes. I take it you missed the whole Microsoft palaver back in 2014 then...?
23 of No-IP.com's domains were nulled overnight. Caused absolute carnage, took weeks to fully recover.
I have been trying to get away from Sunacle for a good few years now, but it's not been easy... MariaDB finally is mainstream for a lot of distros, so I thought I was finally getting out...
Now this. While I don't mind Larry, I certainly do not want to put money into his sailing expeditions.
I'll be starting to offer small-fee DNS services myself over the next couple of months.
(Enterprise Dyn customer for 7 years now across 3 companies, have never used their free services)
I bet the attack got Dyn on Oracle's radar just how important they(Dyn) are to many companies out there in cloud. Oracle has lots of cash to blow and seems like Dyn is likely to be dirt cheap compared to a lot of their purchases.
As a Dyn customer I like the idea of Dyn staying independent, certainly do not believe the attack hurt their business all that much(all of their paying customers especially the big ones are well aware of the DDoS risks).
I just think that some big exec had an "aha" moment(again after the attack surfaced how critical Dyn is) and decided to give Dyn an offer they felt Dyn wouldn't be able to refuse.
