NTP Pool News

Expanding the anycast DNS server

“pool.ntp.org” is serviced by a number of DNS servers. One of them, a.ntpns.org, is actually several servers in an anycast cloud.

Until today it was just served by two nodes, one in Los Angeles and another in Luxembourg (both provided by Solfo). Today a third node in Northern California is joining in, hosted by Sonic.net!

If you are able to provide a server (most virtual servers work, too) on a network with BGP routers to join the anycast cloud, please email ask@develooper.com.
