Yesterday, Infoblox hosted the second annual “Inside Baseball” event, an informal meeting of representatives from companies that work with DNS to discuss strategic and operational issues. Dyn, Inc., who dreamed up the event and hosted last year’s meeting at their headquarters in Manchester, New Hampshire, coordinated registration and proposed a loose agenda.
Attendance was terrific, with representatives from Dyn, ISC, Verisign, Neustar, F5, Secure64, Google, Microsoft, Comcast, Akamai, OpenDNS, Nettica, NoIP, TZO, Cotendo, Cloudflare, CloudFloor, and Cloudfish attending. (Just kidding. There’s no Cloudfish. Yet.)
The group discussed many issues facing DNS today, including World IPv6 Day, DNSSEC, government regulations, and more. We even did a little protocol engineering, led by Paul Vixie, and recorded a star-studded new episode of The Ask Mr. DNS Podcast.
Afterwards, most of the group watched the San Jose Giants get walloped by the Visalia Rawhides.
The event is a wonderful opportunity for folks who work with DNS daily to meet their peers and discuss issues they’re facing in an open, neutral environment. Infoblox is proud to have been a part of it.
