Defining the criticality of RIPE NCC services provides a whole range of benefits. In this article, we take a look at the model we're adopting in order to determine a criticality rating for our services.
Keeping the channels of communication between us and the wider Internet community open has always been one of our main priorities. Just lately we received some input that caused us to rethink the way we've been doing things on this front.
Our cloud strategy framework provides the principles and requirements for the cloud architecture of the RIPE NCC services. To determine these requirements, it uses the service criticality framework, more specifically its availability component rating.
Our cloud strategy framework provides a starting point that we will use when developing cloud implementations in the future. It also forms a solid basis for discussions with the community on specific proposals relating to our services.
After the publication of the Critical Infrastructure Protection report more than ten years ago, we asked ourselves how critical infrastructure companies are interconnected, how resilient these connections are, and to which extent they are dependent on foreign entities.
