World IPv6 day is finally here

The world IPv6 day is finally here. Several large organizations are participating. Google is now responding with an IPv6 address for www.google.com when you ask their DNS forcing clients to try IPv6 prior to IPv4.

Some statistics about IPv6 traffic can be found here: For the Internet Exchange in Amsterdam and for Akamai
It is hard to tell right now if there is a significant increase in IPv6 traffic around the globe.

If you know any other sites that provides real time statistics, let me know.

Facebook and World IPv6 Day

Why It Matters to Facebook

World IPv6 Day will allow us to better understand how our infrastructure and code perform under IPv6 while minimizing impact on our users. Since January, we’ve conducted several studies and tests of our own and have gained even greater confidence that our site is ready for IPv6. We anticipate that 99.97% of users will not be affected at all. The small number of users who may be affected may find that pages are slow to load and we are working to minimize the impact.

Of course, we will be prepared to address any issues as they come up. Our Help Center has instructions and more information for users who may be affected.

We are encouraged by the overwhelming response of the hundreds of major organizations who have signed up to participate on World IPv6 Day.

Check back here June 9 to see how the test went.

    Wereld IPv6 dag

    Op 8 juni wordt er, op initiatief van ISOC, een wereldwijde IPv6 dag georganiseerd. Zo veel mogelijk bedrijven/websites worden opgeroepen om gedurende 24 uur hun content over IPv6 aan te bieden. Het doel van deze grote test is om organisaties in de gehele industrie, ISP’s, hardware producenten, verkopers en webservices, te motiveren om hun diensten IPv6 gereed te maken en om ervoor te zorgen dat er een succesvolle overgang mogelijk is als de IPv4 adressen op raken.

    De Nederlandse IPv6 Task Force roept alle organisaties op om mee te doen aan dit initiatief en zo de overgang naar IPv6 te versoepelen. Voor meer informatie klik hier.
