Il progetto pool.ntp.org è un grande cluster virtuale di timeserver che forniscono un servizio NTP affidabile e semplice da usare per milioni di utenti.
Il pool viene usato da milioni o decine di milioni di sistemi in giro per il mondo. È il "time server" predefinito per la maggior parte delle principali distribuzioni Linux e molti dispositivi di rete (vedi informazioni per venditori).
Dato il grande numero di utenti abbiamo bisogno di più server. Se hai un server con indirizzo IP statico sempre connesso ad internet, ti chiediamo di considerare di aggiungerlo al sistema.
Il progetto è mantenuto e sviluppato da Ask Bjørn Hansen e un grande gruppo di collaboratori nelle mailing list. Il codice è disponibile.
L'host e la banda per i server "hub" sono attualmente forniti da Packet e NetActuate.vai su

The NTP Pool Project turns 20This year the NTP Pool Project has been serving time to the world for 20 years! Trillions and trillions of DNS requests have been served to billions of clients, with the NTP requests handled by thousands of NTP servers across the world day and night. Development on the project ebbs and flows, but maintenance and upgrades on the production infrastructure is consistent – and constant. Our community is active; and the NTP server operators even more so with almost 2,000 operators managing the 3,000 IPv4 NTP IPs and 1,600 IPv6 IPs active in the system.

NTP Pool servers on Kubernetes on Packet
Packet is awesome.
When we started planning our recent unplanned server move, we investigated options for having not one, but two sites, for the “hub” systems for the NTP Pool. With 4000 NTP servers and hundreds of millions of clients using the system, it really should be a given!
Evaluating our options on a ridiculously short timeframe, Packet stood out as an interesting choice, though we were a little apprehensive at first if their setup would be too unusual compared to more familiar options.
After a quick chat with some of the friendly staff at Packet, we were off to the races to see if we could get everything migrated in less than a week of nights and weekends. If we could, we’d be able to move the physical servers the following Sunday without downtime to any critical services, and get us closer to having proper redundancy.
Working with the Packet system has been fascinating and extremely productive. Despite having done this sort of work for several decades, it was a surprise how mixing familiar capabilities, APIs and abstractions opened new ways for quickly building and managing powerful, reliable and scalable infrastructure.

New Account FeaturesThe beta site has been updated with new features for managing the accounts. Until now each server had to be associated with just one user login. In the new system servers are associated with an account that can have multiple user logins. If you can, please try it out and post bug reports or suggestions in the development forum or via email.

NTP Pool servers hosted at NetActuateThe NTP Pool consists of (as of this writing) more than 4000 NTP servers provided by the community, about 40 DNS servers and a good handful of “hub servers” running the website, databases, monitoring (for NTP, DNS, etc) and a bunch of other software to keep the system going. This spring we learned that the facility the systems were in was being decommissioned and we needed to find other arrangements, quickly.
