Manchester, N.H.’s Dyn just scooped up a neighbor to add to it growing list of acquisitions. The company announced today that it has acquired Renesys, an “Internet intelligence” company that has its headquarters in Manchester and a research and development facility in Hanover, N.H.

With Renesys in the fold, Dyn is launching what it calls a new Performance Assurance product line that it says will give its customers “insights they need to make instant, intelligent decisions to improve the performance of their Internet enabled applications.”

Renesys, founded in 2000 by Dr. Andy T. Ogielski and Jim Cowie, has what they call “a real-time, global sensor grid ” that monitors, collects, analyzes, and correlates Internet performance data. Dyn plans to integrate all of Renesys’s technologies into other aspects of its own Internet performance solutions, including its Traffic Management and Message Management platforms.

Renesys’s 40 employees will all become part of the larger Dyn family, including chief executive Ashton Peery, founders Ogielski and Cowie, as well many other top executives. The Hanover research and development facility will become a Dyn regional office.

In a statement, chief executive Peery said, “Dyn and Renesys are an ideal pairing; the two companies give customers the ability to see everything that’s happening on the Internet and take action before a network performance issue escalates into a full-scale business problem.”

“The acquisition of Renesys establishes Dyn as the premiere Internet performance company,” added Dyn’s own chief executive and founder Jeremy Hitchcock.
