PeeringDB Release v2.23.0
PeeringDB is pleased to announce the release of v2.23.0. Summary release notes are published on the release notes page.
This release includes a key feature that comes out of the Data Ownership Task Force, which was established to clarify who is authoritative for data about networks where multiple members participate, like IXPs. This change means that all networks will need to have a technical POC when they publish a connection to an exchange network. This change will help all the parties on the exchange resolve technical issues efficiently. It was proposed and discussed in GitHub issues #826.
Stefan Wahl, Senior Ambassador ECIX, Megaport, says: "This new feature is a great improvement allowing users to correctly identify the authoritative contact of a network. I enjoyed collaborating with the PeeringDB Task Force on this project."
If you have an idea to improve PeeringDB you can share it on our low traffic mailing lists or create an issue directly on GitHub. If you find a data quality issue, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PeeringDB is a freely available, user-maintained, database of networks, and the go-to location for interconnection data. The database facilitates the global interconnection of networks at Internet Exchange Points (IXPs), data centers, and other interconnection facilities, and is the first stop in making interconnection decisions.
