RIPE 74 – Highlights from Days 3, 4 & 5

The RIPE 74 meeting was happening last week in Budapest, Hungary, and we’ve been highlighting the presentations and activities related to the Deploy360 technologies. Although much of the action for us happened on the first couple of days, there’s still quite a few things to highlight from the rest of the week. Wednesday and Thursday were largely devoted to Read more…


Google Cloud Platform gets IPv6 support

The Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is now able to support IPv6 clients using HTTP(S), SSL proxy and TCP proxy load balancing. The load balancer will accept IPv6 connections from users, and proxy those over  IPv4 to virtual machines (i.e. instances). This allows instances to appear as IPv6 services to IPv6 clients. At the moment, this Read more…

This system is explained more in an older post Read more…

We recently received good news from Liquid Telecom who have implemented native IPv6 in Kenya and Zimbabwe and are actively using it. This was the next phase after their smaller rollout in Kenya undertaken only a few weeks ago. Others talk about being IPv6 ready, but they’ve proudly gone to being truly IPv6 active. As Andrew Alston, the main architect behind this Read more…
