IPv6: A New Internet Protocol to Expand the Web by Trillions of Addresses

June 14th, 2012    Posted in Internet, web hosting, web server news
 

Maybe you did not notice, but the online universe extended overnight by trillions on June 6th, 2012. At midnight, Greenwich Mean Time, on June 6th, 2012, World IPv6 (the new Internet protocol system) Launch took place. According to the Internet Society, this means the introduction of more than “340 trillion, trillion, trillion” new IP addresses into the online world.

Every single device connected to the internet (World Wide Web) had an IP address. Since the beginning of the Internet, we have been using the IPv4 Internet addressing system. However, the problem is IPv4 IP addressing system can only provide about 4 billion unique IP addresses. And back in February 2011, ICANN (International Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) handed out the last of the IPv4 addresses that were available.

That was when IPv6 came out. It could provide about 340 trillion trillion trillion (340,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 – 340 x 1036) new IP addresses, a number that could provide the world-wide-web with virtually unlimited space for its growth, from today and into the near future. According to Google, the number is so big that in the future not only your computers, phones, but watches, TVs, cars, and even fridges would have their own IP addresses. And you will be able to control your everyday appliances and other objects with just a click on an application.

“IPv6 is a long-term investment to ensure the Internet continues to be open to innovation”, said Leslie Daigle, chief Internet technology officer at the Internet Society.

Although big Internet names like Google, YouTube, Yahoo and Facebook have come on board to connect, the total transition to IPv6 will not happen overnight. And IPv4 addresses are also not going to disappear in the near future. They will be around until the entire internet converts into IPv6, which is a process that would take some time.

At VpsWebServer.com, we believe that IPv6 is really important for the continued health and progress of the world-wide-web. And we will be handing out the IPv6 IP addresses to our VPS hosting customers, as soon as they become available to us. So if you are interested to know whether you are already using IPv6 you can visit ipv6test.google.com to find out.

September 5th, 2011    Posted in web hosting
 

Parallel desktop 7.0 has been released with the addition of the best virtualization solution which can be well put into use for OS X. In order to make this newly released product run under lion, it has been designed with various unique features. With the modification in the end-user license agreement of the operating systems of desktop, the latest release has been given a new feature which enables to create virtual machines so that the client version of lion can run itself. For all users who want to run multiple configurations simultaneously, this is great for them. The example of multiple configurations can be developers, systems administrator, and, of course, journalists, reviewers etc.

The front end of parallels can be easily managed with the help lion compatibility. This can be explained with an instance like windows can be run in the new full-screen mode of the operating system so that the entire screen can be taken over effectively by the guest operating system. In order to run like the counterparts of the OS X, Windows applications are included in Mission Control and Launch pad. The parallel desktop comes with significant improvements i.e. their apps can simulate hardware that too up to 1GB of video memory so that higher resolutions can be easily handled.

This also allows 3D performance which is around 45 percent better than its predecessor.  It is 60 percent faster in making start, stop and resuming windows when compared with its previous versions. This new release enables the company to promote it as an improved version of its iOS app which is basically used for controlling virtual machines running on OS X or Windows.

It has launched a unique solution named IxLoad-VM so that the infrastructure of virtualized data centers can be easily managed. In order to provide efficient and fruitful cloud based services, this newly launched test solution evaluate the capacity and quality of the applications, networks and components of cloud data center. With the help of this solution, the performance level of the applications can be accessed across the virtualized data center. In the virtual environment you can get the benefit of accessing performance of layer network with the use of an additional feature i.e. IxNetwork-VM. Your virtualized data center can be well demonstrated with the features provided by this testing solution such as virtual security elements, virtual router/switch nodes, and actual web infrastructure.

Important points:-

  • IxLoad-VM has been considered as the perfect product because of its full-layer 2-7 test capabilities. It is a powerful method of testing your network and component processing that too at a low cost.
  • On virtual hosts, the virtual test ports are operated within the virtual machines so that performance level of SAN, virtual switch and cloud data center network can be measured.
  • The infrastructure of the virtual desktop are basically tested with IxLoad-VDI which allows you to understand the behavior of real world user. The capacity of virtual server can be speedily detected by invoking scripts.
  • The performance level of converged Ethernet, CNAs and SAN can be easily tested with the use of test port which allows creating large-scale I/O traffic from within a VM.

Nowadays, for every enterprise of different sizes, application virtualization in a cloud environment has turned out to be an appropriate solution which provides many benefits such as flexibility, capacity and economical benefits. It becomes tough to understand the requirements and optimizing performance with the shared nature of cloud computing components so it is essential to adapt this testing solution for measuring true capacity and quality of virtualized applications and infrastructures.
