PerfOps Changelog: Better, faster, stronger!

Our team is constantly working on improvement of our services and expanding the existing functionality. And, of course, we want to share with you the results of our work.

PerfOps node servers number has increased to over 300.

Our nodes are, obviously, the most important tools for determining DNS providers performance (DNS resolvers and Cloud providers performance as well).  Thanks to our partners EdgeUno and NetActuate, who provided us with servers, now we have more test nodes worldwide in the following locations:

South and Central America:

  • Chile (Santiago)
  • Brazil (Fortaleza and São Paulo)

Asia:

  • Saudi Arabia (Riyadh)
  • Japan (Tokyo)
  • Singapore
  • Hong Kong
  • India (Chennai)
  • United Arab Emirates (Dubai)

Africa:

  • South Africa (Johannesburg)

North America:

  • the USA (Seattle, San Jose, Raleigh, Phoenix, NYC, Miami, Los Angeles, Denver, Dallas, Chicago, Ashburn)
  • Canada (Toronto)

Oceania:

  • Australia (Sydney)

Europe:

  • France (Paris)
  • Spain (Madrid)
  • Germany (Frankfurt am Main)
  • Romania (Bucharest)
  • Netherlands (Amsterdam)
  • United Kingdom (London)

So our tests keep conquering the world with our 300 not Spartans, but nodes :)

And yes, we will continue to add new servers to expand our DNS/Cloud providers test area!

New Platform and API v.2.

Our Time-series Databases engine was changed and our API was completely remade, so we easily handle more than 1 billion of CDN providers performance tests per day and that is far from the limit! And that is not all: now we offer new and extremely powerful API v.2 with greatly improved response speed for all endpoints.

You can explore it on our Documentation page:

ASN, ISP and City filters.

By completing the previous (new platform / APIv2), we are now able to launch new platform features very quickly. We have implemented an amazing analytics segregation ability - three additional filters levels for CDN and DNS providers test results, available for Enterprise accounts.

City filter goes first:

And the results are shown at the graphs and can be grouped by cities:

The same thing goes for ASN and ISP filters:

Grouping by ASN and ISP is implemented as well:

In the combination with our massive amount of RUM tests, you can now access very deep information on your CDN performance and solve the problems in hours or days, instead weeks.

IPv6 data in CDN providers tests Raw logs.

We are starting our implementation of IPv6 addresses and the first step is that we added that option in RUM tests Raw Logs:

Fetch remote sources function for Custom FlexBalancer.

One of the most important features for having optimal decision making in your smart traffic routing configuration - fetchRemote function for Custom FlexBalancers. It allows you to get the data from external sources and use it in decision logic in global load balancing for your multi Cloud, multi data center or any other cross-regional network infrastructure. For example, that can be multiple data types determining the best CDN to choose for video streaming in your Multi CDN config, or something more simple such as your server load.

You can find tutorials and use cases in our PerfOps Wiki.

Security improvements: 2FA

We are concerned about our users safety, and now each user can enable two-factor authentication (2FA) for his account. That can be done on the Settings page.

We are constantly improving our service and your opinion is important. If you have any ideas or wishes - feel free to send us an email to team@perfops.net
