ZDNet: GitHub open sources OctoDNS, new tool for managing DNS records

ZDNet: GitHub open sources OctoDNS, new tool for managing DNS records. “The frailty of the DNS system became all too evident last year, when DNS host Dyn was hit by a major Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack that brought down large swaths of the internet. With the threat of DDoS attacks only expected to grow, experts urge organizations to build redundancy into their DNS services. GitHub, the online code-sharing and development platform, is introducing a new open source tool to make it easier to create that redundancy.”
