World IPv6 Launch

There's a chance this post was delivered to you via an IPv6 connection. Today is World IPv6 Launch day, and we're live for good. Truth of the matter is that we've been IPv6 reachable for over a year, and on World IPv6 Day last year we enabled a AAAA record for that one day to test our readiness. It didn't go as smoothly as we would have liked, but lessons were learned, and on April 27th, 2012 we put the AAAA record back in place, and all has been well.

This site still receives it's IPv6 connectivity via tunnel from SixXS, and the lab's internal network IPv6 connectivity comes via a tunnel from Hurricane Electric. Our ISP is still in the early stages of deploying, and we don't have a time table for going native.

To all of the content hosts, service providers, equipment manufacturers, and end users who have taken the plunge we salute you. For those that haven't yet gotten on board, the only thing that's scary about IPv6 is being left behind.
