Now we're done with the bulk of this work, here's a more detailed status
- all of OARC's primary infrastructure has now been successfully
relocated from Internet Systems Consortium in Redwood City to
Hurricane Electric in Fremont, California. I'm pleased to report this
was done without any significant mishap to our hardware or data.
- we did have some config issues with our ix1 server which led to some
services being down for a day or two longer than intended, but
otherwise the move went pretty much according to the announced
- we'll be spending the rest of this week doing testing, debugging,
documentation and tidy-up.
- one outstanding item is that we need to publish new IP addresses for
the ODVR resolvers. Otherwise, we believe that all public-facing OARC

their hard work and professionalism in getting this demanding
- We'd also like to express our thanks to the entire ISC Operations
team for all their service, support and helpful flexibility over the

Members, and operate an open peering policy via the SFMIX route
server. Please get in touch if you are interested in doing any of
Finally, thank you to our Members for their support and patience while
we completed this important work. This enhancement to our stability and
robustness builds on OARC's growth as an independent organization and
puts us in stronger shape for the future.
