.IS now serviced by the Autonomica Anycast System

ISNIC has signed a contract for anycasti services for the .is ccTLD with Autonomica AB of Stockholm Sweden. Autonomica is the current operator of the I-root, and as such operates servers in 33 locations all over the world.

The IS has been served by the ISC SNS@ISC system for some time now and together these two systems mean that the response time for delegation record lookup for .IS domains will be much improved globally. ISNIC will also have better defenses against various types of resource depletion on the .is nameserver set.
