Networking in 2015 - SDN and IPv6 | Part 2 By @MJannery [#SDN]

Once the initial scares surrounding IPv4 address exhaustion passed, enterprises have taken a relaxed attitude to deploying IPv6

In Part 1, I shared my thoughts on SDN in 2015, after reading Sean Michael Kerner’s article in Enterprise Networking Planet.  This post will cover a few of my thoughts on IPv6.

Once the initial scares surrounding IPv4 address exhaustion passed, enterprises have taken a relaxed attitude to deploying IPv6 (if they deploy it at all).  Given that there are sufficient IPv4 addresses for enterprises to use internally and well proven solutions for implementing NAT at the LAN/WAN boundary, there doesn’t appear to be a compelling reason for enterprises to adopt IPv6 internally in 2015.  Furthermore, most network architects, operations and support teams are very familiar with designing, supporting and troubleshooting IPv4 networks they are less familiar with performing the same with IPv6 or mixed or tunnelled IPv4/IPv6 networks.

Has your organization adopted IPv6?  If not, are you planning to?  We’d welcome your thoughts and comments.

According to the IDC InfoBrief, Sponsored by Nutanix, “Surviving and Thriving in a Multi-cloud World,” multicloud deployments are now the norm for enterprise organizations – less than 30% of customers report using single cloud environments. Most customers leverage different cloud platforms across multiple service providers. The interoperability of data and applications between these varied cloud environments is growing in importance and yet access to hybrid cloud capabilities where a single application runs across clouds remains elusive to most organizations. As companies eagerly seek out ways to make the multi cloud environment a reality, these new updates from Nutanix provide additional capabilities to streamline the implementation of their cloud services deployments.
