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.

Important points regarding unique testing solution

August 29th, 2011    Posted in web hosting
 

When we think of availing services related to converged IP and wireless network solution then the name that strikes our mind is the world’s leading company called Ixia. 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. Therefore we can conclude that all the security flaws, operational issues and performance bottlenecks can be overcome with Ixia’s testing solution.
