OARC 36 will be an online meeting on November 29th & 30th starting at 10:00 UTC. The Programme Committee is seeking contributions from the community.

All DNS-related subjects and suggestions for discussion topics are welcome. For inspiration, we provide a non-exhaustive list of ideas:

  • Deployment: Managing DNS changes and propagation, release process, change management.
  • Monitoring: Log ingestion pipeline, analytics infrastructure, anomaly detection.
  • Scaling: Managing service capacity, failovers, disaster recovery.
