We’re happy to announce today that we’ve finally completed all testing for deployment of IPv6 of our infrastructure and it has been live for quite sometime but we’re ready to announce it’s general availability across our entire OpenStack Public Cloud.
As of today, all servers across our entire infrastructure are automatically assigned an IPv6 address using SLAAC (stateless auto-configuration). This means that you don’t have to do anything on your server and you’ll see that it will have an existing pre-configured IPv6 address. You can also find your IPv6 address in your control panel in the server overview as well.
With this change, we hope that our customers can take advantage of it and start offering services over IPv6 as well in order to accelerate the adoption of IPv6 all over the world. We have much more exciting new features we’re launching so stay tuned as well for those!
