ISC Takes Next Step in Corporate Growth, Moves up a Level in Leadership
Kannan Ayyar Appointed President of Internet Systems Consortium
Redwood City, CA – July 17, 2012. The board of directors of Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) has appointed Kannan Ayyar as its new President. ISC is one of the world’s leading Internet technology companies, best known for providing BIND Open Source Software, the de-facto global standard for DNS.
On May 22-24, Eddy Winstead taught ISC's DNSSEC & IPv6 (Domain Name Server Security IPv6) Workshops at the Universidad Tecnológica de Panamá (UTP), in conjunction with the Departamento NIC-Panamá and in collaboration with the Secretaría Nacional de Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovació. Read the announcement on their website.
Though we are best known for our BIND and DHCP software, these are just one part of ISC's mission. ISC also takes pride in operating one of the Internet's 13 top (root) level namservers. Part of being a root nameserver operator is doing what it takes by preparing for the worst-case scenarios -- even if they never happen.
DNS software takes another leap forward on leap day
Redwood City, CA – February 29, 2012 Today Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) released the latest version of its undisputed market-leading DNS software, BIND 9.9. This latest version of the software continues ISC’s longstanding commitment to ensuring the Internet community at large has access to the cutting edge features and functionality of our Open Source software, with significant performance improvements and enhanced usability, especially for DNS Security.
The Internet Systems Consortium is looking for a few more good programmers to bring the next generation of its open source BIND DNS server software to fruition.
"The goal is to move away from having BIND a heavily sponsored corporate product," said Shane Kerr, ISC's BIND 10 engineering manager. "ISC will always maintain ownership of the code, but we would like there to be more of a community around it."
