    The IPv6 Tsunami is Coming — What’s your plan?

    It’s no secret. IPv4 addresses are nearing exhaustion. As of March 2009, only 12.5% of the IPv4 address space remains available. In April of this year, The American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) issued a letter advising that IPv4 will be depleted within the next two years, and urging the Internet community to prepare for IPv6. Despite the projections and warnings, today only 4% of the Internet supports IPv6.
    IPv6 demand is coming. And most expect that when it hits, it will hit hard. So what’s your plan?
    Richard Jimmerson can help you formulate a strategy. Richard is the Chief Information Officer at the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN). Richard’s session on IPv6 will provide greater detail on the pending IPv4 depletion, and he will provide tools and strategies to help you move to IPv6.
    Register now to attend Richard’s session, just one part of an outstanding program at HostingCon 2009.

    We already offer IPv6 Address space to our clients, within all facilities we have colocation space in.
    IPv6 ready-ness has been a leading decission factor when choosing our new locations in the past year.

    Though, to my shame i have to admit that our own services are not reachable over IPv6.

    I love how arin is spooking everyone into the world not having ips, yet they don't crack down on companies who abuse the privilege of having ips.


    meh.

    I'm all for ipv6 - so don't get me wrong.

    But I question the actual utilization of ipv4.. in addition to the "12.5%" not yet allocated, there's got to be TONS that are misallocated or improperly utilized. 10 IP's where one would do. Entire /19's, /16's and so on assigned to government organiziations that use jack crap of them, and so on.

    If someone could just wake up one day and know how every organization is utilizing their ipv4 space, I bet they could show us at least a 25% return after correcting stuff that shouldn't be done that way it is being done, or IP's not being utilized at all.

    the facts are that for the short-term most people are going to be OK. the real problems will begin somewhere around 2012 most likely. although having an ipv6 plan at this point is probably essential.

    that said, resources not hosted on our network (such as our helpdesk) are not yet reachable via ipv6... we are working with those hosting providers to get that fixed as soon as is feasible.

    another problem with ipv6 is that your average user probably needs to continue using NAT, but as far as i know there's no provision for that in ipv6 (they should use router advertisements or dhcpv6 and never NAT they say...)

    Foundry has been really good (especially responsive) on both support and cost. Cisco has been ok except in odd cases on older platforms (like a 3750 carving available memory (tcam) in half when having to deal with both protocols). Juniper, I believe, stopped their extra additional pricing scheme where you ended up paying like double for 1 piece of equipment just to have IPv6 support. Force10 hasn't made a good impression, especially on IPv6 BGP support.
