ISC Concludes BIND 10 Development With Release 1.2

Project Renamed 'Bundy'

REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/17/14 -- Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) today announced the release of version 1.2 of its BIND 10 software, and with that release announced that ISC has concluded its development work on BIND 10 and will no longer be updating the source pool.

BIND 10 release 1.2 consists of an authoritative server, a control framework, an application interface, a statistics server, a logging framework, a remote control daemon, a configuration client tool, and numerous other tools for its development and operation.

"BIND 10 is an excellent software system," said Scott Mann, ISC's Vice President of Engineering, "and a huge step forward in open-source infrastructure software. Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to continue development on both projects, and BIND 9 is much more widely used."

"The BIND 10 software is open-source," Scott added, "so we are making it available for anyone who wants to continue its development. The source will be available from GitHub under the name Bundy, to mitigate the confusion between it and ISC's BIND 9 (a completely separate system). The name 'BIND' is associated with ISC; we have changed its name as a reminder that ISC is no longer involved with the project."

BIND 10 release 1.2 is available from ISC at http://isc.org/downloads/platform

BIND 10 was a multi-year development project with numerous sponsors around the world. ISC is grateful for support received from Afilias, AFNIC, Association DNS.PT, Brazilian Network Information Center (NIC.BR), Canadian Internet Registry Authority (CIRA), China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC), Comcast, CZ NIC z.s.p.o, DENIC eG, Google Inc., IIS, Japan Registry Services Co, Ltd. (JPRS), Nominet UK, New Zealand Registry Services (NZRS), Réseaux IP Européens Network Coordination Centre (RIPE NCC), Stichting Internet Domainregistratie Nederland (SIDN), Technical Center of Internet, and Uniforum SA. We expect the continuing development of Bundy to involve an equally diverse collection of developers and supporters.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
