.PE joined LACTLD’s Anycast Cloud

Montevideo, November 2020- NIC Peru became a part of the 11 ccTLDs in the region that are already clients of LACTLD’s Anycast Cloud. This means that the ccTLD has copies of its zone in the different nodes that make up the network.

Thanks to this, .pe offers a higher response speed due to the fact every query made to its ccTLD is directed to the available node closest to the user’s geographic location. At the same time, it improves its robustness and resilience because it has immediate recovery instances in case of an incident or attack.

The Anycast Cloud is a unique initiative in the world for its regional, collaborative and non-profit nature. Thanks to its operating logic, it makes efficient use of its participants’ infrastructure, it provides geographical and topological diversity and promotes local traffic exchanges.

“It is a great joy that .pe has become part of the initiative, which brings greater resilience and security to the region’s DNS. We also want to extend the invitation to all Latin American and the Caribbean ccTLDs to join the Anycast Cloud”, commented  Miguel Igancio Estrada, LACTLD’s General Manager.
