Cloud IPv6 deployment: Phase 1 completed

15 September 2011 Nessun commento

The first phase of bringing IPv6 into the cloud has been completed today. The first part of deploying IPv6 involved making sure that all new servers are deployed with IPv6 addresses. Starting now, all Virtual Machines could be deployed with an IPv6 IP address included for free (at no cost). We have ensured that the IPv6 address is setup on all types of platforms (CentOS, debian, windows) and work flawlessly.

All new Virtual Machines servers will continue to be loaded with 4 IPv4 addresses as well as 1 IPv6 address for free. This means that you will be running a dual-stack setup that is accessible by anyone both over IPv4 and IPv6. When the time will come that people will be forced to run over IPv6, your site will be ready and accessible with no problems.

The next phase is allowing current clients to add an IPv6 IP address to their server, this should be added in the coming days. It will allow all of our clients to enable IPv6 on their server by getting assigned an IP address and then it will automatically be deployed on your cloud server.

We are extremely happy to be one of the first cloud platforms to deploy IPv6. We are looking forward to bringing our entire cloud platform to IPv6 before the next World IPv6 day so that our clients are able to participate in it using our cloud platform. As usual, if you notice any issues where something doesn?t go right or you have any questions about IPv6, please contact us.

What type of Cloud Hosting does Engine Networks provide?

Not all Cloud hosting uses the same computing technology, resulting in dramatically varying levels of scalability, reliability and performance. Our HP & VMware Cloud hosting platform uses genuine, purpose-built HP Blade server technology coupled with VMware (the industry’s premier virtualisation software), to control server resources.

HP VMwareHardware Configuration.
We utilise multiple HP Blade enclosures which contain up to 16 Blades per enclosure. HP Blades are servers that are mounted vertically which allows more units to fit into a smaller amount of data centre space, resulting in energy savings.

Our storage arrays employ fibre channel disks connected via fibre optics which are the fastest disks in the world today, and the best way to connect storage devices to Blade servers. Read/write bottlenecks encountered when using classic VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and physical dedicated servers are now a thing of the past.

Geniune Cloud Hosting
We have carefully selected this combination of technology and specific type and configuration of hardware because together, they provide scalability, reliability and performance above anything else available today. Many other hosting providers advertise their offering as Cloud but in reality, they provide single stand-alone servers which are virtualised. Our genuine Cloud Hosting platform simply cannot be bettered.
