[arin-discuss] Encouraging IPv6 Transition (From PPML)

Amazon Web Services (AWS) supports IPv6 to a significant extent.
Rackspace participated in World IPv6 Day, and offers IPv6.
Netflix has signed up for World IPv6 Launch, and from what I hear, they're including streaming.

I don't have recent information about VMware or other virtualization software.  Some CDN appliance vendors are behind.

>Some have had IPv6 running for a long time. <flex>
>I think one area everyone has skipped is the "cloud" providers.  By default most hypervisor management systems do to support IPv6 at all, or the company itself hasn't started the work of coding such.
>I've seen nothing from Amazon or Rackspace, and vCloud-based providers don't have the pieces from VMware (though vSphere 4+ support IPv6 natively).  CloudStack and OpenStack are both lacking as well. (we support IPv6 in our vCloud environment but only on direct connect or external firewall set ups)
>I bring this up because that is an area where big content also lives.  Netflix on IPv6 would create some traction..
