DuoCircle is an entity that was established for the migration of Dyn’s legacy email receiving products customers to a more powerful and feature rich email handling platform. They were challenged with migrating Dyn’s legacy email infrastructure to provide simpler and easy to use configuration files, reducing hardware hosting costs and ensuring better customer satisfaction.
Headquartered in San Diego, California, DuoCircle provides over 17,000 customers located globally with a next generation software platform with a robust account management and service management interface for high level of control over settings, customer care and a scalable architecture designed for high level messaging and spam filtering.
Anders Saaby, CTO, One.com explains, “Due to One.com’s high growth rate, we needed to upgrade our existing email delivery and security infrastructure to a newer solution that scaled better in terms of performance and maintenance.
One.com typically develop their own software and systems as this enables them to offer truly differentiated services with many unique features, at very competitive prices. This usually rules out many commercial products, as they cannot properly support and integrate into One.com’s sophisticated and highly customized platforms.
“We researched and evaluated many email security and delivery platforms against our requirements,” Saaby continued. “We finally settled on Halon email platform based on price, performance, ease of use, flexibility, multitenancy support with security and its ability to scale on demand.”
Halon’s highly integrated and comprehensive platform now comprises One.com’s entire email delivery infrastructure; except for email storage and web mail.
It’s a flexible and scriptable email engine, designed to be run as part of a fault tolerant and linearly scalable cluster that integrates with surrounding modules and infrastructure. This highly differentiated platform enables demanding organizations like hosting providers and MSPs to implement ideal solutions for their specific needs.
On the inbound side, clusters of Halon nodes have replaced several layers of components including IP reputation, recipient verification integration, anti-spam and antivirus, policies, aliases and external forwards with SRS, auto replies, backup/replay and routing to the email storage servers over LMTP. All integration uses a REST API endpoint that One.com wrote. The outbound cluster integrates with the same API for SASL authorization, relay permissions and rate metrics, and ensures excellent deliverability.
Trends come and go but fashion is always in style. 20 years of emails shows that it is a consistent way of communication, despite a relatively standstill in development. While the world sings their praise for new and sexy messaging services like Slack, gets rid of stationary phones, and transfer customer communication to Facebook chat bots, the B2B world still rely steadily on email. After three days of WebSummit in Lisbon, Portugal, I am even more convinced than before.
Did you open your mailbox this morning, only to find a few more of those obnoxious spam emails? Did you react with an irritated frown and a thought about that you are paying for some service to keep this shit out? Don’t worry, it’s perfectly normal. In fact, so did I. Read more.
