Archived: Interruption to Telephone Service

Today, at around 13:00 UTC+1, our Amsterdam office suffered a power outage. This is causing inbound and outbound telephone calls to fail. We are investigating the problem and will find a solution as soon as possible. You can still get in touch with the RIPE NCC online.

Reverse DNS Provisioning Delay
Archived: Temporary Reduction of Available History on RIPE Atlas, RIPEstat and DNSMON

On Tuesday, 18 October 2016, between 09:00 and 10:00 UTC, the back-end storage cluster for RIPE Atlas and RIPEstat will be switched to a backup environment. This is part of planned maintenance work. The backup facility has a more limited amount of storage space, which means that RIPE Atlas, RIPEstat and DNSMON will not serve data older than one year. We expect this to have no impact on ongoing RIPE Atlas measurements, scheduling new measurements, or the retrieval of more recent data from RIPE Atlas, RIPEstat or DNSMON.

RIPE Atlas Website Down

The RIPE Atlas website was unavailable from approximately 13:30 - 14:20 UTC due to a database error. The issue has been fixed and we apologise for any inconvenience this caused.

Archived: Intermittent Telephone Issues

We are currently experiencing a problem with our telephone connection. This problem continues from our announcement last week, which is not yet fully resolved.
