3Tera Adds IPv6 Support To AppLogic Cloud Computing Platform
October 2, 2009
First support for IPv6 in cloud computing allows users to seamlessly use
native IPv6 to connect applications between datacenters
3Tera, the leading provider of cloud computing technology and utility
computing services for hosting providers, recently announced AppLogic is the
first cloud computing platform to demonstrate support for IPv6. 3Tera and
hosting partners Cari.net and ScaleUp Technologies successfully demonstrated
database replication between applications running in two different cloud
provider datacenters using an IPv6 VPN tunnel created with 3Tera's new VPN
Until now, IPv6 adoption has been slowed by the perception that it requires
both support on the client side and complex code changes in applications.
With 3Tera's AppLogic cloud computing platform, it is no longer necessary to
make changes in the configuration of the software in order to be able to
support IPv6, while still keeping the data available to IPv4 users.
"We are removing barriers for IPv6 support and creating momentum for IPv6
adoption," said Peter Nickolov, President and CTO, 3Tera, Inc. "Within
AppLogic, applications and complex distributed systems are actually not
aware whether they are running over IPv6 or IPv4, which makes the transition
to IPv6 seamless."
"In less than an hour we added 3Tera's new VPN appliance to an existing
application," said Mark Ortenzi, President, Cari.net, a hosting provider
based in San Diego, CA. "The appliance established an IPv6 tunnel for
database and file system replication between the application running in our
San Diego datacenter and another copy in the ScaleUp Technologies'
datacenter in Germany."
Christoph Streit, Founder, ScaleUp Technologies, based in Germany commented,
"We have experimented with native IPv6 in our datacenters for some time and
3Tera is making it easy for cloud users to utilize the IPv6 network. In our
test no change was required to the datacenter, the application code or the
client. For scaling a global cloud offering, this is critical to success
because IPv4 addresses are more difficult to obtain internationally."
Why IPv6 in the cloud?
Adopting IPv6 both internally and for use natively between applications
addresses issues facing the growing cloud computing ecosystem:
increased need for IP addresses due to virtualization and cloud computing
global accessibility of cloud applications
government mandates for security
complexity of adopting IPv6
use of scarce IPv4 addresses for communications between applications
ability to obtain IP addresses for international datacenter operators
The AppLogic VPN appliance with IPv6 support used in the tests is available
immediately to AppLogic users by contacting 3Tera. By the end of 2009 all
relevant appliances in the AppLogic catalog will be IPv6-ready.
3Tera and hosting partners AgathonGroup, Cari.net, ClearManage, DNS Europe,
ENKI Consulting and ScaleUp Technologies are either supporting IPv6 in the
cloud today or are preparing to offer it before the end of 2009 in the U.S.,
Canada, UK, Germany, and Singapore.
