The only DNS + RUM steering solution.
Pulsar is the only RUM steering solution that is integrated with authoritative DNS. What does that mean to you? Simple. Boost application performance and reliability without redirecting queries to a separately-managed third-party platform. It’s all natively integrated into NS1’s Managed DNS.
Take Control of Performance and Cost Among your CDN and Cloud Providers
If you’re thinking about adding Cloud or CDN providers for better regional coverage or leverage price competitiveness, yet don’t want a headache, we’ve got you covered. Pulsar makes it simple to route each user to your CDN's, cloud providers, or data centers based availability, real-time latency, throughput, or even the relative cost of each provider. You can make users happy while you get better resiliency and stretch your budget.
Simple. Automated. Immediate Results.
Pulsar immediately routes every user to the optimal end point based on real-time conditions, so your application is unaffected by infrastructure problems while they’re happening. It’s that simple.
Massive Set of Community Data
Pulsar securely gathers billions of measurements a day from real users around the globe. Leverage our community data about major cloud providers and CDNs, or push your own custom application and infrastructure metrics into Pulsar. All data is made anonymous, and secure.
Unique Data for Capacity Planning
Pulsar’s technology leverages all available data - yours and ours - to give you unprecedented visibility into your application’s performance as it's being experienced by your end users. Aggregate metrics and synchronize actionable data across our global DNS network to understand the areas of the world that are experiencing slow performance so you can redeploy capacity to better meet demand.
Seamless DNS & Traffic Management
Pulsar is natively integrated with NS1’s next-generation DNS & traffic management solution. Use Pulsar with NS1’s powerful Filter Chain capabilities to optimize a traffic routing schema for your application.
30-40% more accurate than georouting
When georouting was introduced more than 15 years ago, it was the best proxy for latency you had, but NS1 research shows the shortest distance does not actually deliver the optimal experience 30-40 percent of the time. Now you can use milliseconds, rather than miles to route traffic. And combined with other filters like shed load, weighted shuffle and geofencing, you can quickly and easily achieve dramatic performance gains.
