Who are operate a Data Center and have your own AS. Do you think IPv6 is important in this period? Do your customer ask you about IPv6 ? Or IPv6 is only a selling point ?

Anyone with an AS# and who isn't already IPv6 enabled or implemeting v6 now, will find themselves losing business over the next 12-24 months to thos eof us who have been fully IPv6'd for nearly 10 years !

No, but that's largely because outside of the Far-East, almost no "consumer" has equipment IPv6 ready to access v6 services.

Yes, when you have AS#, you may got your IPv6 address too. But you may need to config each for your dedicated servers.

IPv6 is not really used much yet as quite a few ISP do not really fully support it yet. But they will need to do so very soon as IPv4 is getting depleted very very fast. Since this is getting depleted fast, there's no way of replenishing them so a new method needs to be introduced which is basically IPv6.

Perhaps right now, there's not a big demand for it but in time to come, you will notice that there will be more and more people wanting it and using it as a replacement to IPv4.

Personally, I don't really see IPv6 picking up anytime soon. It would take at least1-2 years before most if not all ISP to enable IPv6. This is something which is not easily done by them before it is costly and all.

I think all providers are going to provide IPv6 connectivity before it is really needed and use IPv6-only hosting if still far away - read this:

I don't really think so, cloud would be my first worry before this.

IPv6 is still a bit away.

IPv6 is a long road away, but I think most people are still up for IPv4's.

Due to too much IPv4 utilization IPv6 came into market, this is not as good as IPv6 but still its useable.

We know IPv4 is the best but you can't decide everything upon your choice. That's what the result is - IPv6. Since IPv4 are limited so we have to move.

As far as the active use of IPv6 is concerned, i think it will take few years more.

We're still on IPv4, but I believe it's a question of few forthcomming months to get ready for new protocol...

Yeah, question is really kind of mute. IPs are running out. We are all going to have to learn to accomodate the new version. Don't see where we will have any choice.

Yes, IPv6 is important. We provide both IPv4 and IPv6, although the latter is not in great demand. We do have to accommodate for the eventual and gradual shift to IPv6 when IPv4's become unavailable.

IPv6 is very important due to depletion of IPv4. Once IPv4 is completely exhausted what do you plan to offer your clients?
