I know that's been the case for a while - really since ACS took over the

Does this plan to move services involve relocating some from the US to
Germany, that you're aware of?

They're not that many anyway, much remained in .de when SUSE was bought
by Novell. A little digging with traceroute and whois on some relevant
hosts tells me that e.g. the subdomains/hosts:

www, en, news (all, forums (

are reached (from here, and now) via

11 ( 12
( 14

so seem to be hosted at a site in Denver, USA.

That geolocation is probably incorrect, as I tihnk most of those
(certainly the 130.57 addresses) are in the Novell DMZ in Provo. is also in that area - for both the web and NNTP
interfaces. However, they're leveraging existing infrastructure, so not
sure that they should/would be moved.

The subdomains/hosts:

login, features (, lists (, software
(, download (, build (,
bugs, doc (, connect (, static
(, the last of which is notable as it hosts static
webcontent (e.g. graphics) for www and the <LANG> subsites etc.

are all reached (from here, and now) via
7 ( 8 (

so they all are at the SUSE site in Nuremburg, Germany ("NBG" is a
common abbreviation for Nuremburg and NUE is the IATA-Code for the
airport N├╝rnberg (Nuremberg)).

I haven't looked up by/via what host(s) the Novell ICS login for
bugzilla etc. is handled.

Remember: all those hosts/IPs might be loadbalanced and whatnot.

So, I guess, there are not that many services to be moved anyway.

That's probably the case.
