What is an Anycast network

Anycast is a network technique whereby the same IP address corresponds to several hosts. The network then chooses only one address to which it sends the user’s request, based on costs and on the server’s “status”.

On top of speed, the Anycast network grants full availability of the protection services: if it detects an over-loaded server, it sends the request to the next, nearest node. Since no client configuration is needed, all of this happens within almost zero time.

A further advantage is represented by the ease of management since you can avoid setting up different DNS servers, having instead a unique IP address, configured in every position.
