NTP Pool News

www.pool.ntp.org served via Fastly

Today I am experimenting with hosting www.pool.ntp.org through Fastly. If you don’t know about them, they make an excellent CDN based on Varnish serving billions of requests a day.

The downside is that it is IPv4 only (currently), but then all the “static assets” (CSS files, images, etc) were already served by them, so using the site with only IPv6 was not a good experience.

Fastly is also hosting Perldoc.perl.org and have been doing so for a while.

Anyway, while the experiment is ongoing, accessing the pool site should be even faster than before, in particular for those of you who are in Europe or in the eastern US.
