IPv6 and Cloud Hosting

  1. 1. Arne Kiessling | 30 March 2017 | Connecting the Cloud IPv6 and Cloud Hosting
  2. 2. Arne Kiessling | Connecting the Cloud | March 2017 2 The RIPE NCC • Regional Internet Registry for Europe, Middle East, parts of Central Asia • Created by the RIPE community in 1992 • Technical and administrative support for the RIPE community • Provides Internet number resource allocations and assignments, registration services, coordination activities, other technical services and tools
  3. 3. Arne Kiessling | Connecting the Cloud | March 2017 3 The Internet Registry System
  4. 4. Arne Kiessling | Connecting the Cloud | 30 March 2017 4 Cloud Hosting • Users move to cloud solutions for: - Cost reduction - Business agility - Improvement of IT services • Growth in user numbers limited by IPv4 address space available to the provider
  5. 5. Arne Kiessling | Connecting the Cloud | 30 March 2017 5 Provider Challenges • IPv4 does no longer scale • Customers demanding IPv6 support • (New) competitors offer services over IPv6 • Increasing IPv6 mobile traffic; many mobile apps are SaaS-based • ‘The Internet of Things’ needs IPv6
  6. 6. Arne Kiessling | Connecting the Cloud | 30 March 2017 6 How does IPv6 fit in? • Huge address space - Large prefixes allow for better (internal) aggregation - Public addresses = no need for NAT • Offers auto-addressing options - SLAAC, DHCPv6 • Improved L2 to L3 mapping - Neighbour Discovery replaces ARP
  7. 7. Arne Kiessling | Connecting the Cloud | 30 March 2017 7 More IPv6 advantages • Nearly unlimited scale • Easier address management • Possibility for enhanced services, evolution and cost savings
  8. 8. Arne Kiessling | Connecting the Cloud | 30 March 2017 8 Points of Attention • App Store requires IPv6 support - If your services include support for mobile apps, they need to be IPv6 capable or IP-agnostic • IPv6 features to request from vendors - Document ripe-554 (Requirements for IPv6 in ICT Equipment) can provide support • Information and training for staff - Document ripe-631 can help (residential) helpdesks with troubleshooting issues
  9. 9. Arne Kiessling | Connecting the Cloud | 30 March 2017 9 Cloud providers offering IPv6 • Cloud providers now started to offer services over IPv6 • Mainly IaaS and PaaS solutions - AWS - Azure - Cloudflare - HP (also SaaS) - IBM Softlayer
  10. 10. Arne Kiessling | Connecting the Cloud | 30 March 2017 10 Situation in the Netherlands • RIPE NCC has ~900 active members in the Netherlands • Demographics show that 27 out of the 32 Dutch RIPE NCC members in ‘hosting’ category announce IPv6 • No statistics for cloud providers :(
  11. 11. Arne Kiessling | Connecting the Cloud | 30 March 2017 11 IPv6 RIPEness • RIPE NCC members score up to 5 “stars" for each step taken towards IPv6 deployment: - Holding an IPv6 Allocation - Announcing (parts of) the IPv6 Allocation in BGP - Registering a route6 object in the RIPE Database - Creating domain object(s) for Reverse Delegation - Offering access or content over IPv6 • Statistics: http://ripeness.ripe.net
  12. 12. Arne Kiessling | Connecting the Cloud | March 2017 12 IPv6 RIPEness in the Region Netherlands (898 members) No IPv6 145 4 Stars 276 3 Stars 166 2 Stars 78 1 Star 233 Belgium (239 members) No IPv6 55 4 Stars 63 3 Stars 29 2 Stars 27 1 Star 65
