PeeringDB has been around for 15 years. An entry in PeeringDB is a must-have if you want to interconnect with other networks. There is no other dabatase where you have all the information about networks, Internet Exchange Points and Facilities/Colocation in one place, nicely interlinked. As PeeringDB is so important, a Seattle (US) based association was set up in late 2015. In March 2016 a wholly new version of PeeringDB (PeeringDB 2.0) was released with an intuitive GUI and a powerful API. This presentation gives an overview of PeeringDB, both from an organizational as well as a technical point of view and highlights the latest developments. We also present statistics about the SAFNOG region from a PeeringDB perspective.
