Subject Re: IPv6 Hackathon next week
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2016 05:57:01 GMT
On IPv6 support:

Cloudstack has limited IPv6 support already built into it IPv6 Support in CloudStack <http://docs.cloudstack.apache.org/en/latest/networking/ipv6.html>.
This does not appear to be in use ? And also looks like a superficial add on as against a
well thought of feature.

IPv6 support is much required and there are efforts to add IPv6 support to cloudstack with
different approaches. There is an effort to add IPv6 support to basic networking here IPv6
in Basic Networking <applewebdata://646A458E-2C5B-4B81-B02F-3EF89239A7BF/confluence/display/CLOUDSTACK/IPv6+in+Basic+Networking>
and another one that is trying to add IPv6 support to VPC's networks here IPv6 in VPC Router
<https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/CLOUDSTACK/IPv6+in+VPC+Router>. 

It is possible that the localised efforts may lead to code duplication and other inefficiencies
and inelegancies. It is important that we write a common set of  network primitives that are
IPv6 and IPv4 aware and that can be used further to enable IPv6 in various other components
and resources managed by cloudstack.A start to this effect has been made in this OSPF PR:
IPv6 in VPC Router <applewebdata://646A458E-2C5B-4B81-B02F-3EF89239A7BF/confluence/display/CLOUDSTACK/IPv6+in+VPC+Router>.


As part of this collab, can we get an overall IPv6 strategy in place so that the localised
efforts have some thing to look upto ? This will mean A] Are the external cloudstack dependecies
dual stack ? B] Where all dual scheme will be required and where it will be on choice, like
Can I have a system vm services available on both IPV6 and IPV4 or while configuring the zone
we just mark it as a IPV6 zone, for example. There will be more such questions.  Ready answers
to such questions will help in moulding the various IPv6 works that are going on.
