Optimization of latency

CloudBOX is a FlashStart exclusive application that mainly allows to optimize operations related to DNS request and resolution. It can be physical or virtual and plays the role of an intermediary cache between users and the cloud, where Flashstart’s intelligence takes place.

The CloudBOX stores in memory the DNS requests made, as well as the responses or rejections received from the cloud. This allows you to further optimize resolution times.

FlashStart’s Anycast network is one of the fastest in the world, according to independent surveys by www.dnsperf.com. Latency is even close to zero when using CloudBOX, as it stores in memory the results to be returned and is able to provide the response for repeated requests on its own.

Customization of filters

The CloudBOX, in addition to a history memory, has the additional feature of encoding the request in order to identify the user’s filtering profile. Since the router merely sends the DNS request, with no information about the profile of the person making the request, CloudBOX is necessary if granular filtering is desired.

By sending filtering policy information to the cloud for multiple users, groups, machines and times, the FlashStart system is able to check whether that domain type is allowed for that particular profile at that particular time, and then decide whether to return the result or a block message.

CloudBOX easily synchronizes with MS Active Directory and the most common RMMs, making it even easier to customize filters.
