A hefty funding round in difficult times for Dyn, the company that is focused on ensuring that the Internet works as fast as possible. Well, not quite the entire Internet, but they’re focused on making sure that their customers get the best internet performance.
Dyn is a vendor in the Internet performance management (IPM) space. Like another company I covered recently, Teridion, Dyn is all about delivering visibility and control across customers’ application and infrastructure. Teridion would argue with that contention, but more on that a little later.
Anyway, Dyn has a range of tools in this space and claims eight of the top 10 Internet service and retail companies as customers along with six of the top 10 entertainment companies. High profile customers include Pfizer, Visa, Netflix, and Twitter. Dyn’s solutions fit into three buckets — data, analytics and steering.
