I don't know what the other poster(s) were referring to, but I was not suggesting that network operators try to run some unified DNS infrastructure. It is an intriguing idea, however.So, the question remains, does the poster think that network operators should band together and operate shared anycast recursive DNS services? Or does the poster think that network operators should operate many recursive DNS servers throughout their infrastructure and tie them together using anycast?
Perhaps even more interesting is being able to sell anycasted reverse DNS service directly to users that are connected to incompetent providers. ;-) Seriously, though, some benefits can be imagined, like being able to use the same DNS server on my laptop no matter where in the world I plug in.If anycast is a good idea for recursive DNS service, then there is a 3rd party business opportunity here to operate global recursive DNS services so that network operators can focus on running the network, not on providing services like DNS resolution.
