IPv6 in Data Centers

As Internet IPv6 adoption is reaching significant levels (25% global penetration, with large countries like US reaching 40% penetration), you cannot ignore the impact of IPv6 on your infrastructure any longer.

This section will help you understand the role of IPv6 in your data center and provide additional information in case you decided to deploy it.

2:42:00 Enterprise IPv6 - the First Steps

This webinar describes the basics of IPv6 and helps you understand typical IPv6 deployment scenarios, IPv6 security implications, and the first steps you need to take to deploy IPv6 in your network.

1:30:00 IPv6 in Data Centers

Regardless of what you think about the role of IPv6, its usage is growing, and eventually you'll have to bite the bullet in introduce another protocol in your networking infrastructure. This presentation by Ed Horley (who was deploying IPv6 in data environments for years) should help you understand:

  • What do you need to consider before you start your IPv6 journey
  • Should you implement IPv6 in parallel with IPv4 (dual-stack) in the data center?
  • Can IPv6 deployment in a data center be an advantage for certain services, applications and workloads?
  • Are there specific things to be wary of when adopting IPv6 in the data center?
  • What training, skills and resources do you need to make it actually happen?

1:58:00 IPv6 Transition Mechanisms

This webinar is a comprehensive overview of numerous IPv4-to-IPv6 transition mechanisms, including IPv6 rapid deployment (6over4, 6to4, 6rd), IPv4 residual deployment (DS-Lite, MAP-E), and IPv6 access to IPv4-only content (NAT64, SLB64).

1:18:00 IPv6-Only Data Centers

The webinar describes an alternate approach to dual-stack or IPv6-on-the-outside design: an IPv6-only data center and network core with the only IPv4 component being NAT46 translation boxes at the network edge. Tore Anderson is running this design in production environment and shared his real-life experiences and the glitches he encountered in his deployment.

3:19:00 Building Large IPv6 Networks

This webinar covers all you need to know about designing and configuring large-scale IPv6 core or access networks. It covers dual-stack deployment, 6PE and 6VPE options and all major routing protocols (BGP, OSPFv2/v3, IS-IS). Access network section describes SLAAC, DHCPv6 and RADIUS issues you’ll likely encounter when deploying IPv6.
