I wish I had an idea!

I know I have pushed on my side back to VMware already (we use their
stuff all over our network for our customers).

But as I said, this is about all management systems for the different
virtualization hypervisors.

I haven't seen anything in the UI for Amazon or Rackspace (been a
while and someone already responded saying that something was done and
then referenced worldipv6day which has nothing to do with whether
their system supports it for their customers).  I know it is not there
for vCloud Director (VMware), CloudStack (verison 2 series for sure
but no mention in the 3 documentation either), OpenStack (nova and
prior, I'm a little behind on the current release).  I see nothing
from the other large players like Terremark, Bluelock, Virtacore (all
VMware based), nor GoGrid, Linode, Slicehost (now Rackspace) either.
