M-Lab 2.0 Platform: Global Pilot Entry
For a while, we’ve been developing M-Lab 2.0 [1, 2]. This month, we are launching a global pilot for the new software stack. The changes include:
- Stock Linux 4.19 LTS kernels with modern TCP and Cubic congestion control
- Standard instrumentation for all experiments using tcp-info
- Virtualization and container management using Kubernetes and Docker
- Reimplementation of the NDT server
Update to M-Lab Policies
Earlier this month, M-Lab published updates to our policies after completing a comprehensive review to ensure our compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in preparation for the M-Lab 2.0 platform modernization update that will be rolled out this fall. This post outlines the changes and additions to our policies for the general public, for experiment developers hosting tests on the M-Lab platform, and for partners who provide hosting for M-Lab servers.
