    While it has taken far too long, I am grateful that IPv6 is finally being supported on EC2. Now just waiting for Google Cloud…

    Interesting to note that Amazon are limiting IPv6 addresses to 8 per instance. To me IPv6 is a better approach for container networking, as opposed to the raft of SDN solutions and NATing that has evolved around containers, but this would limit me to 8 containers per host.

      Wow, and there I thought Google (having a rather decent networking infra) would support IPv6, but seems you’re right when looking at GCE ISSUE-8. On the other hand, Azure seems to support IPv6 alright.
