IPV6 is a total clusterfuck....

    Not even supported by most (all?) ISP here in Canada.
    I liked it when I lived in France. I could do AAA DNS record for every PC in my home network without all that “NAT” shit.
    Azure doesn’t support IP6. Don’t know about other cloud providers

    For VMs yes. But not direct cloud services.

    Not for services like WebApp. You can use that, but seems as a pain :

    And on personal note, if your “cloud” infrastructure is just a bunch of VMs, well, you don’t take advantage of cloud services at all

    @dakkarant How is it worse to set up than IPv4, besides the longer addresses?
    There is even a better auto configuration (SLAAC) than for IPv4, but DHCPv6 remains an option. Besides that, subnetting and configuration largely remains the same.

    There's so many problems with ipv6->ipv4 routing that it's baffling. I don't understand how this logic bomb hasn't gone off yet.

    And AWS definitely supports ipv6

    When I asked my ISP if they are planning IPv6 support they were staring at me like I was an alien. So yes, it is very useful.
