This should have been an addition rather than a migration, with IPv6-based service operating in parallel with IPv4. That will still happen, but I fear that the IPv6 side is going to be pushed by the lack of IPv4 addresses to being more rushed than it could have been. Larry M.

Migration to IPv6 has been in discussion for years. There are a couple of challenges, primarily, related to how to make sure backward compatibility. For example, a cloud-based service can't disappear after migration. Nor can your reach to the Internet. The exhaustion of IPv4 addresses is indeed a critical trigger. What will happen to the cloud-based company before and after the migration? The bottomline is financial institutes can't lose connectivity for a minute.

It's fascinating to me that people pay so much attention to doomsday scenarios like the Mayan calendar and so little to inevitable events like the fact that we are going to overrun the IPv4 address space. Granted, most people don't really understand this stuff, but the ISPs should have been much more aggressive about bringing up the infrastructure. Larry M.
