IBM Announced that IBM NS1 Connect will be launched on October 17, 2023.

IBM NS1 Connect will leverage the power of DNS to deliver fast, reliable connectivity for applications and websites across the globe. For IBM clients, that means a customer experience that can drive revenue, lower customer churn and improve the agility of network teams.

This new product is based on IBM's acquisition of NS1 earlier this year.

While NS1 will continue to sell its solutions, IBM’s DNS offerings are expected to have a baseline set of features: a global network, a 100% uptime service level agreement, protection against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks and support for DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC). Customers can also easily route DNS traffic across 26 points of presence (PoPs) to help keep users connected.

IBM NS1 Connect is designed to deliver top-tier response and propagation times, an API-first infrastructure to support automation and a sophisticated traffic-steering option.

This is just the beginning of a new phase within IBM’s portfolio of networking offerings. IBM NS1 Connect is a strategic entry point to another upcoming opportunity — internal network connectivity through IBM Hybrid Cloud Mesh. Together, IBM expects these two products to offer enormous value to customers by creating an end-to-end solution for application connectivity.
