April 29, 2011 by  

Webmaster ToolboxSan Francisco, CA – OpenDNS, the world’s largest and fastest-growing provider of Internet navigation and security services that make networks safer, faster, smarter and more reliable, today announced it has added yet another server location – this one in Frankfurt, Germany.

OpenDNS, the favorite and most trusted DNS service of network administrators everywhere, operates datacenters at the most strategically-located intersections on the Internet. The new server in Frankfurt is added to better serve OpenDNS’s ever growing user base across Europe. With pre-existing servers in London and Amsterdam, the added Frankfurt server is poised to make OpenDNS the absolute fastest DNS service for European Internet users.

The Frankfurt datacenter is the twelfth for OpenDNS, which has been rapidly expanding its global footprint to accommodate unprecedented growth and user adoption. OpenDNS has plans for continued expansion and added server locations throughout the remaining part of 2011 and going forward into 2012.

“After the United States, OpenDNS has the second largest customer base in Europe. We’re dedicated to continually improving the OpenDNS experience for European customers and a big portion of improving a DNS service is adding server locations to make resolution faster,” said OpenDNS CEO David Ulevitch. “With London, Amsterdam and now Frankfurt datacenter locations, OpenDNS continues to be the absolute best choice for Internet users in Europe.”

Unlike your Internet Service Provider, OpenDNS uses sophisticated Anycast routing technology, which means no matter where you are in the world, your DNS requests are answered by the closest datacenter. With a new datacenter in Frankfurt OpenDNS makes your Internet both faster and more reliable.

In addition to speedy and reliable DNS, OpenDNS also provides Web content filtering, Web security including anti-phishing and malware and botnet protection and detailed insight into the traffic on your network.
