Well, the update train for IPv6 keeps on going. Following up on our initial post, and second post on IPv6 we have the following updates this morning.

Existing v2 instances

You have been assigned a dedicated V6 address. Simply re-apply your network settings for the necessary configuration to take place within your host.

All Instances

Even though we've been offering full IPv6 connectivity since the beginning of this year, as we started formally rolling IPv6 out a few bugs related to our tools have cropped up. (Or, we just missed it.) It's been a great experience and we're glad that we are ahead of the game in providing IPv6 to our customer base.

Once IPv4 space runs out — adding connectivity is going to be the easy part. Taking existing infrastructure, and more importantly applications that need re-factoring to support IPv6 is going to be a challenge.

If you're currently running a web based application, we highly suggest starting the process of testing using IPv6. Think things as simple as making sure your session libraries support IPv6 client addresses.

A few bugs squashed

Our DNS editor now supports AAAA records, and reverse dns for IPv6 addresses are now fully functional.

As always, please keep the feedback coming. We're pleased to have an such an active customer base with many already supporting IPv6 services or well on the path. It's easy to get started and you'll almost certainly avoid headaches down the road.
