Pete Silva’sDaily Dose over on F5’s DevCentral has a new audio white paper – High-Performance DNS Services in BIG-IP Version 11

Give it a listen, and even follow on Twittage:

This problem is not only a bandwidth issue—it’s also closely tied to network and infrastructure architecture.  To provide high-quality user experiences on the Internet, networks must be designed with optimized, secure, highly available, and high-performance IP services.
