Internet performance solutions provider Dyn has acquired internet intelligence provider Renesys for an undisclosed sum.
The acquisition brings together
Renesys’s market intelligence with
Dyn’s ability to deliver domain, traffic and
message management services.
Part of the move will see Renesys’s portfolio of
intelligence products integrated into Dyn’s new
Performance Assurance product line, which is designed to
provide customers with information to improve the performance
of their internet-enabled applications.
Dyn also plans to eventually integrate Renesys Internet
Intelligence into its traffic management and message management
"Renesys’ global and granular visibility into the
internet will allow us to make better traffic and message
decisions, helping our customers more efficiently connect with
their audiences," said Jeremy Hitchcock, CEO at Dyn. "Our new
Performance Assurance product line will help businesses
optimise their internet and cloud network performance, in a
world where any downtime or milliseconds of delay can have a
real business impact."
Talks between the two New Hampshire-based companies began in
February, after Dyn secured a $38 million minority investment
from private equity firm North Bridge last October.
Renesys revealed to Capacity that it is set to release
a new network performance management tool, which aims to offer
enterprises an insight into the quality of network services.
The acquisition is said to help support the launch of this
product, leveraging Dyn’s considerable sales and
Renesys has a longstanding presence in the wholesale segment,
and its wholesale rankings are regularly featured
in Capacity magazine, offering an insight into the
leading wholesale providers in each region.
Speaking exclusively to Capacity, Renesys CEO Ashton
Peery said the company will continue to offer market
intelligence to support the carrier community,
"Alliances between content providers and service providers is
growing, and those combined entities are looking for ways to
distinguish themselves in the market. Our data helps support
them," he said.
"Just as carriers use our market intelligence to distinguish
their service offering in the market, I think they can also use
internet intelligence to distinguish their content or hosting
