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
  services should be working as normal. Please let us know via
  <admin at dnsoarc.net> if you see anything that is not working the way
  you expect it to.

- I'd like to thank the OARC Engineering team, William and Jerry, for
  their hard work and professionalism in getting this demanding
  migration completed.

- We'd also like to express our thanks to the entire ISC Operations
  team for all their service, support and helpful flexibility over the
  past decade of hosting OARC's infrastructure. Rory Doolin, Dan
  Mahoney, and Jim Martin deserve a special mention in particular.

- As we are now in a facility with a diverse community of tenants and
  plenty of room for growth, this opens some new possibilities for
  our members to submit and access OARC data. It is now possible to
  host your analysis server with OARC, directly interconnect with us,
  or peer with US across SFMIX. We will peer directly with OARC
  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.
