We realize that IPv6 is essential to the continued growth and stability of the Internet. Availability of IPv4 is dwindling; the Asia-Pacific region has already depleted its entire stock of addresses and Internet players in the region are rapidly rolling out IPv6 as a result. At ZeroLag, we offer fully-native, secure dual-stack solutions to guarantee reachability to the rest of the Internet, no matter what protocol version your visitors are running on.
ZeroLag proudly participated in the World IPv6 Launch on 6/6/2012 alongside Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Yahoo! and many other content providers, ISPs and distribution networks. In preparation of this momentous day, our website had already been dual-stacked and we continually expand the reach of IPv6 into as many areas of our infrastructure as possible. The Future is Forever!
If you agree with us that deployment of IPv6 is crucial, we know you’ll also agree that infrastructure security is paramount. At ZeroLag, we understand the implications of IPv6 at a high level; if you’ve read articles with scary-sounding headlines discussing IPv6 exploits and attacks, you can rest assured that with ZeroLag you’ll be ahead of the curve – rolling out IPv6 needn’t be a security nightmare when you leverage the wealth of knowledge and experience that we can provide in order to guarantee your expansion into IPv6 is a success.
IPv6 is more than just an “upgrade”, it’s a whole new protocol and a whole new way of thinking – from addressing to routing, right down to how end-hosts are configured; IPv6 is a game-changer and ZeroLag is excited to play its part in shaping the future of the Internet.
At ZeroLag, we believe IPv6 should be done right, that’s why we offer a /64 (optionally routed) as standard – that’s 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 addresses at your disposal – and should you find yourself needing room to grow, we’re more than happy to provide you with a larger allocation to ensure you never need to compromise on routing efficiency or simplified address allocation.
IPv6 introduces many new challenges; The most significant among those is ensuring security without damaging reachability; at ZeroLag we realize that with the many different ways in which people are obtaining online connectivity, ensuring path MTU discovery works soundly is an absolute must when it’s unacceptable for even one user to be unable to connect with your content. As a result, all our systems intelligently track the ICMP(v6) messages that are a part of that process in order to ensure that we don’t leave any user out in the cold.
