Google Improving Location-Sensitive DNS Responses for Its 400B Responses-Per-Day Public DNS Service

Google announced today that its Public DNS team, in collaboration with Akamai, has reached a significant milestone improving the speed of accessing location-based Akamai hosted content. From the announcement: “Google Public DNS now propagates client location information to Akamai nameservers. This effort significantly improves the accuracy of approximately 30% of the location-sensitive DNS responses returned by Google Public DNS. In other words, client requests to Akamai hosted content can be routed to closer servers with lower latency and greater data transfer throughput. Overall, Google Public DNS resolvers serve 400 billion responses per day and more than 50% of them are location-sensitive.”
