Romeo works for the RIPE NCC. He is manager of the Global Information Infrastructure team responsible for RIPE NCC DNS Services (e.g. K-root), Routing Information Services (RIS) and RIPE NCC's Hadoop storage platform, powering RIPEstat and RIPE Atlas.
Recently we have seen an increase in the frequency of excessive traffic towards the RIPE NCC DNS infrastructure. Our servers generally absorb peak loads without an impact on our DNS services. However, to be better prepared for extreme traffic floods, we will work with an external party to provide a…
We're getting ready to expand K-root coverage, and we'll soon be inviting interested members of the community to express their interest in hosting their own K-root node. Learn more about how we propose expanding the network, what the requirements are for hosting your own K-root node, and the projec…
We have redesigned the K-root architecture for our hosted nodes, formerly known as K-root local instances. System architecture and network setup have been simplified a lot. This will reduce our management effort for K-root and reduce costs for K-root hosts.
This report is a follow up to an earlier article, in which we detailed our investigations into the use of virtualisation technology as a suitable means to provide other services via the RIPE Atlas anchor hardware, beyond its primary anchor function.
This article describes the main results of a research project undertaken by Luigi Corsello. During this project Luigi looked at possibilities to use virtualisation technology to expand RIPE Atlas anchors to provide additional services.

Please find below the third part of our technical services update. This time we're focusing on our research activities and a number of tools we are developing.
In 2013 and 2015 we provided high-level reports on the status of our plans for our technical services and tools. It is time for an update. In this first article we will focus on RIPE Atlas.
Since 2003, the RIPE NCC’s DNS Monitoring Service (DNSMON), has been providing a comprehensive, objective, and up-to-date overview on the quality of the service offered by TLD and other DNS operators. Due to technical advancements and in line with our aim to provide consolidated services, we are in…
On Wednesday 13 June 2012, an unknown error caused the removal of several zone files from the configuration of our reverse DNS provisioning system. Following up from the initial report published on RIPE Labs, we further analysed what caused the incident and implemented a number of procedures to dec…
