Starting today, new Mikrotik virtual routers will use CHR (Cloud Hosted Router). This change paves the way for future support for cloud images on the platform.
We have acquired an additional
/23 of IPv4 addresses to scale the platform. New virtual machines will begin to use addresses out of this space over the course of the next month.
Virtual routers will now automatically receive an IPv4 address via DHCP. Customers are advised to statically assign their IPv4 / IPv6 addresses after they have been installed.
Beginning today, Neptune is migrating from AS397143 to AS21700. This applies to both peers and customers. With this new change, there are new BGP communities that can be used by customers that can influence the routing decisions inside of Neptune's network.
Peers will be able to seamlessly migrate to AS21700 by updating their BGP sessions. The session will come online automatically once moved over to AS21700. Be sure to update filters when doing so.
Customers will need to coordinate with the Neptune NOC via [email protected] in order to migrate their BGP session over to AS21700 in order to minimize downtime.
We performed four upgrades to our NY1 site to improve network capacity and performance. These upgrades include:
In order to accomplish these upgrades, there will be a scheduled maintenance window for NY1 from 10:00AM to 16:00 EST (15:00 - 21:00 UTC). Our changelog will be updated throughout the maintenance window with updates.
Included in these upgrades is a new set of BGP communities that can be used to influence routing policies inside of Neptune's network. These are published on our peering page.
