Cloud and IPv6 Workshop

This workshop of the UK IPv6 Council gave information about the current level of IPv6 support in various Cloud offerings, as well as other IPv6 challenges in virtualised environments.

It was held at Imperial College London on Tuesday 3rd September 2019, from 1.00pm to 5.30pm.

The rationale: Existing information on the Internet is piecemeal, hard to put together for Cloud customers and therefore we want to enable our members and the industry with this information.

Agenda

13:00 – 13:30 – Doors open – buffet lunch will be available

14:30 – 15:15 – Current state of IPv6 support in AWS (Scott Hogg, Hexabuild, USA) (PDF)

15:15 – 15:45 – Tea & coffee break

16:45 – 17:15 – Overview of IPv6 support in container technologies (Pieter Lewyllie, Cisco, BE) (PDF)
