Re: Cloud "v6-aaS"

@Cryptoman: you are absolutely right. Unfortunately, once launched worlwide IPv6 past a few days ago, it is proven we are assisting in something that needs to be really optimized in terms of full interworking v4/v6, considering that, by definition, IP even by adopting the new version of the protocol, will continue to work best effort with no-predefined path from source to destination. As consequence, nobody knows in advance which transit portion will go trought for reaching a given server and to by-pass this present issue, it seems v6-aaS could sound as good and quite simple way. Looking forward and congratulation again for the article.

Hi Matteo.

I am glad to hear that you liked my last post. Your suggested service does offer an interesting opportunity for the Cloud service providers. However, I am not sure how the cloud service providers will get the commercial opportunity with the ISPs sitting in the middle.

I think the IPv4 IPv6 interworking and compatibility issues would have to be addressed by the internet service providers though. In other words, before one even gets access to the cloud services, the compatibility matters would be resolved seamlessly and transparently to the user. Also, as this compatibility issue would be resolved by default, the end user will have no option of getting such a service from cloud service providers.

Cloud "v6-aaS"

@Cryptoman: well, considering your great blog on Cloud, there is a topic a I have forgotten to mention. One of the key point for massive adoption of cloud is the "as-a-Service" paradigm; while IPv6 won't totally replace current version of the Internet protocol, one of the model for allowing truly interworking between the remaining Internet-v4 and the new portion Internet-v6, should be the utilization of IPv6 on demand, as per "as-a-Service" model, that doesn't require to change anything at home router level. This way is announced also as one of the key for definitely launching of Cloud services.

Re: Mail Readiness

Even considering any Internet's evolutions achieved, email is and will be one of the most important basic services. If you want to test your IPv6 mail readiness, there are great tools available; one of them is for instance "bouncer"; basically, send an email to "autoreply@v6-mail.com", if you receive a reply message in your inbox it means your email service works fine and is full compliant to Internet-v6.

Re: IPv6 in the access

Good point t.alex, you are telling about a really serious topic to address. Several ISPs and Telco Providers have started their migration towards IPv6 focusing, mainly, on the core. As of today, a few only providers in the world, are providing customers with IPv6 in the access, apart mobile operators which are deploying broadband LTE networks. Anyway, for residential users, there are several great possibilities for adopting IPv6 at SOHO (small office / home office) level, without performing any changes within home routers. One of the most famous way is based on TSP protocol and there are several IPv6 networks for IPv6 services for free, it doesn't matter your location. For example, take a look at gogo6 or SixxS  and enjoy v6 !

Re: Avoiding NAT, allowing p2p

We have been talking about IPV6 for maybe a decade. It is silently embedded into products without much notices. Most routers nowadays should already support IPV6 but the use of private address of IPV4 is still so prevelant (i.e. NAT). Firewalls from router will definitely block direct P2P connectivity. IPV6 is definitely beneficial at the larger scale like public server addresses. But for home or office users, i don't see it improves a lot.

Number of grains of sand in the world

@Cryptoman: how fascinating is your topic ! I totally agree with you, large space on IP pools means fast grow and management is needed. Definetely. In fact, believe it or not, IPv6 is "enlarging" Internet in a way for plugging a devices' number over stars in the universe and number of grains of sand on all the beaches in the world. Enjoy this great scale  on what we are discussing !

Numbers still need management
Cryptoman   6/12/2012 11:51:28 AM

Although technically 128 bits do provide a huge pool of addresses, the number of available addresses are still finite. Therefore, if all devices in the world start using unique static addresses, and given that the increase in the number of IP-enabled devices is growing rapidly, we may find ourselves looking into IPv7 in a few years' time! Dynamic address allocation has its uses and not every device needs a static IP address to be honest. Think of your PC ar home for instance. It really does not need a static address and therefore dynamic addressing would be very useful for that particular use case. Since there are millions of such users, this wold yield a considerable saving in static IPv6 addresses. For most M2M applications, I can definitely see how useful static addressing could be. It will speed up access and greatly simplify the management of a network.

@p_d: you are right, definetely, that is the reason for calling "Internet of Things" and, as its evolution, "Internet with Things", the deployment for any-to-any interconnections, without restrictions in addresses. Internet is becoming larger because devices' number connected is increasing and because physical objects are becoming other component, in a such way, "pluggable".

If I understand it correctly, IPV6 128 bit addressing will allow STATIC IP address to each connected device instead of the current practice of DYNAMIC on the fly IP address allocation.

Such Static IP address will make all internet transactions traceable and hence more secure.

The no of available static IP addresses now becomes virtually limitless.
