Neustar and OpenDNS Launch, A Service to Optimize and Enhance DNS Updates

Neustar and OpenDNS have launched an initiative to collaborate and create a DNS Real Time Directory.  Many business and government networks are stalled by an annoying wait time called DNS TTL (time to live) that causes a delay for cached pages to be updated within the ISP infrastructure. The DNS Real Time Directory is also designed to decrease the vulnerability of the domain name system (DNS).  From OpenDNS release on the collaboration and intiative:

The DNS Real-time Directory makes disaster recovery easier, faster and more flexible, as it facilitates instant updates to DNS entries and IP addressing in the wake of an outage. By speeding up the time it normally takes to acknowledge updates to the Internet’s infrastructure, the DNS Real-time Directory represents a significant step forward in the way web-savvy organizations manage change.
