IXP Manager

Call for Sponsorship

IXP Manager began as an internal project at INEX and we chose to open source it in 2012. To date, INEX has borne nearly the complete development, maintenance, support and project management burden of the project. However, in writing down the plans we would like to achieve – coupled with our current workload and available resources – we have come to the realisation that to fully develop IXP Manager into all we hope it can be, we needed to look at a more sustainable funding model and hire a full time developer.

Our call for funding document (including year one development plan and year two and three outlook) can be downloaded here.

If you'd like to discuss sponsoring IXP Manager, please contact Barry O'Donovan on either +353 1 531 3334 or sponsorship@ixpmanager.org.
