Starting in early June and over the next few months, the DNS-OARC will be engaged in a program to augment and replace its systems to support its various services. The upgrades are intended to accommodate user and collaborator demand for the long term as the DNS-OARC experiences growth, both in the collection, storage and analysis of data as well as in the use of its tools by the Internet public.
Please pardon the occasional outages in the interim that you may encounter - it's a work in progress, but important work nonetheless.

Dear OARC members,
On behalf of the board, I'm very pleased to announce our new Executive Director, Keith Mitchell.
This continues the long-standing association that Keith, who comes with outstanding qualifications, has had with OARC. He was OARC's first President and under his leadership, OARC grew from a subsidized project within the Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) to a self-sustaining independent organization.
Keith, who returns to OARC after leaving ISC, will work half-time for OARC beginning October 1 and will be present at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on October 14.
Please join me in welcoming Keith!
