NS1, a New York-based startup, began offering customized DNS solutions to enterprises, in order to assist speed application dependability and delivery. NS1 is expanding its services across DNS with its latest NetBox Cloud service, which was introduced in preview on August 24, 2021.
NS1's new NetBox Cloud platform provides an integrated solution for NetBox, a well-known open -sourced IRM tool developed by Jeremy Stretch when he was working at DigitalOcean, a cloud service provider. Jeremy Stretch joined NS1 in April 2021 as a renowned engineer, and the company is now funding the open-source program DNS as a service for some of the internet's major websites. Domain Name System connects IP addresses to domain names, and NS1 provides technologies to help businesses dynamically improving application traffic delivery.
NS1 was formed in 2013 and has secured a total of US$ 118.4 million in investment, including a US$ 40 million Series D round in July 2020.
Brian Stretch, a DigitalOcean co-founder, has launched a new version of NetBox, a service that records IP addresses for network infrastructure. Brian Stretch built the first version in 2015 to meet the requirement for a spreadsheet to track IP addresses. He claims that it is now available on all versions of his company's cloud service, which will benefit customers of the company's service.
NetBox has grown tremendously as an open-source software well over time, although it has not been widely available to enterprises who needed commercial support to get started or a customized solution. The new service's goal is to make it easy for organizations of any scale to begin utilizing NetBox to successfully manage their networks.
As a startup, NS1 is highly experimental, and NetBox is no exception. The major goal of the NetBox Cloud's initial beta release is to determine who is attempting to embrace the technology and what obstacles commercial customers will experience.
