Self-Hosted, Next Generation DNS for Your Networks

Private DNS is a software only DNS product solving the performance, traffic management and automation challenges of modern enterprises. It's massively scalable, automated, fast and smart, and built with the same next-generation technology proven and trusted by the biggest brands on the Internet.

API First

Eliminate Dreaded DNS and Other Deployment Delays in DevOps.

DevOps teams are delivering code more than 40 times faster than traditional application development, so they need DNS that can keep up with their velocity. With outdated DNS, DNS changes can take hours - or even days - to propagate. Only Arex’s next-generation Private DNS automatically propagates DNS changes in seconds to eliminate the risk of broken applications and user experiences. Arex’s API-first architecture also empowers DevOps teams to automatically integrate DNS changes into their deployment processes, dramatically improving speed and mitigating downtime. Built-in integrations with the most widely used infrastructure-as-code tools used by DevOps teams, such as Terraform and Ansible, ensure reliable, secure deployment changes without the delays and “friction” of traditional processes

Rapid Detection

Fast DNS Service Discovery

Service discovery is critical in elastic, dynamic infrastructures and cloud based microservices. Private DNS achieves DNS Service Discovery with the speed and immense capacity needed to keep up with rapid change in modern infrastructure.

Speed & Efficiency

Seamless Deployment in a Containerized Solution

Interest in microservices and containers has never been higher. The rapid propagation of constantly connected microservices may simplify code, but it also increases infrastructure complexity and coordination. Private DNS software is container ready, allowing for seamless deployment into your containerized environment.

Point & Click

Traffic Management and DNS Load Balancing

As your architecture becomes more complex and you leverage more diverse cloud services, you need better traffic management to application endpoints. Private DNS has the most comprehensive and easy-to-use traffic management capabilities in the industry, giving you hundreds of ways to orchestrate application delivery.


Get DNS Sprawl Under Control

If you’re like a typical enterprise, you have an assortment of outdated DNS technology due to acquisitions, decentralized purchasing, or the adoption of other services that bundle basic DNS. This DNS hodgepodge creates risk and inefficiency, and prevents you from using the automation, performance and traffic management capabilities of next generation DNS. Private DNS makes it easy to consolidate DNS solutions into one, and greatly improves your team’s ability to innovate and automate.

Digital Transformation

Massive API Capacity Eliminates Enterprise Automation’s API Bottleneck

Enterprises are rapidly deploying applications into cloud infrastructures at unprecedented levels of connectivity and scale. At the heart of these connections are API calls – which now outstrip the capacity of outdated enterprise DNS systems to keep up. Private DNS is specifically tailored for enterprises driving a wave of cloud and other digital modernization initiatives – with 10-100x API capacity and a reduction in propagation times from hours to seconds.
