What is RIPE NCC?
RIPE NCC is an independent, not-for-profit membership organization that supports the infrastructure of the Internet through technical coordination in our service region. The most prominent activity is to act as the Regional Internet Registry (RIR) providing global Internet resources and related services (IPv4, IPv6 and AS Number resources) to members in our service region.
ClouDNS manages its own network system
As a DNS provider for us is very important to manage our own Anycast Network. We are member of RIPE NCC since Jan 2016. Our autonomous system number is AS203391. Our network includes multiple /24 network ranges and 1 /48 ipv6 network range announced from multiple locations around the world.
RIPEstat is a web-based interface that provides everything you ever wanted to know about IP address space, Autonomous System Numbers (ASNs), and related information for hostnames and countries in one place. The graph provided by RIPEstat show you how many paths are required from many geographically distributed networks to reach the ClouDNS Anycast DNS Network. Here is a graph provided from RIPE NCC which show how we are connected to different networks around the world. Our average connection is between 2 (two) and 3 (three) paths (more information what is average path length on Wikipedia) to any network location.
