sure, I hear DNS servers are cheap and small, and easy to manage...

meh? it's a dns server stack and router(s) for peering to the customer +
world... it's really not THAT hard to automate and deploy...
and really for 'single customer' or 'non overlapping sets of customers'
it's not like they need lots of horsepower here, right? this is ... simple
to do, simple to manage and simple to maintain.

there are more than one building in the georgrahy, and probably/maybe these
providers appear in more than one local, right? so... a dns provider can
arrive in the right matrix of locations and connect + provide routing-data

meh.. again, say the customer covers the cost of gear + network +
maintenance for the previous parts.. .then it's just managing 'another'
remote dns server .. .something I understand they do fairly well even? once
you have a hundred of somethign deployed you are automated or .. you are
doing it wrong.
