Montevideo, February 2021- The .AI Registry joined the regional Anycast Cloud community, bringing the number of clients in the collaborative network to 14.
As a result of its incorporation to the Cloud, the .AI has copies of its zone in the different nodes that make up the network. Thanks to this mechanism, the ccTLD has immediate recovery instances in the event of any incident or attack, thus improving its robustness and resilience. At the same time, among other benefits, the .AI will achieve better load management since the network, thanks to its distributed nature, dynamically activates responses to user queries according to the availability of each of the nodes.
The Anycast Cloud is a unique initiative in the world due to its regional, collaborative and non-profit nature. Thanks to its operating logic, it makes efficient use of the infrastructure of its participants, provides geographic and topological diversity, and promotes local traffic exchanges.
“We joined the LACTLD Anycast Cloud because we thought it was a good idea to incorporate this type of support into our ccTLD. One of the biggest benefits we get is that this collaborative network it is very good at staying updated and propagating quickly. Faster than other clouds. It also helps domains resolve faster,” said Vincent Cate of .AI. “We are glad to be on board and very grateful for LACTLD’s help,” he added.
Miguel Ignacio Estrada, LACTLD’s General Manager, said: “We are very pleased with the incorporation of the .AI Registry as a new Anycast Cloud client, and with the fact that this collaborative regional project continues to grow at the pace it is growing. This way, we continue to strengthen the security, stability, robustness and resilience of the Internet in Latin America and the Caribbean.”
