For more than 30 years, the DNS has been one of the fundamental protocols of the internet, yet, despite its accepted importance, it has never quite gotten the due it deserves.

Phil outlines three ways DNS can be used to make your applications and application delivery better:
Digital resilience and high availability
Cloud testing and migration
Cloud and CDN price/performance optimization
