NANOG 64 Highlights and PeeringDB 2.0 Announcement

by | June 8, 2015

NANOG 64, held in San Francisco last week from June 1-3, offered plenty of opportunities to network with colleagues, freshen-up skills, learn advanced networking techniques, and discover new network applications. The conference certainly met our expectations, from the content, attendees, to even simply the weather in San Francisco. Our CEO, Aaron Hughes, spoke on two separate occasions; on Tuesday, he was the co-chair of the BCOP track and on Wednesday, he announced a major update on PeeringDB and the future of its organizational structure.

PeeringDB is a freely available web-based database of networks that are interested in peering, which has become the default location for Internet peering data. Hughes announced that PeeringDB 2.0 is ready to launch. The PeeringDB 2.0 beta site is up now at beta.peeringdb.com and they’re planning to cut over to the live site on August 1, 2015.

Feedback from the crowd was very positive:

Here are some highlights from the rest of the conference:

It was a pleasure meeting all of our new connections and saying hello to our friends; we look forward to seeing you again at the next NANOG event!

“We decided to move our rather complex IP address and DHCP management process to ProVision and it has worked out great for us!! The team at 6connect were very flexible and went above and beyond to accommodate our requirements and helped to make the migration as smooth and hitch free as possible. Kudos to the team @ 6connect!”
