3Tera Adds IPv6 Support to AppLogic Cloud Computing Platform

First support for IPv6 in cloud computing allows users to seamlessly use native IPv6 to connect applications between datacenters

3Tera announced AppLogic(TM) 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 catalog appliance.

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 4th International Cloud Computing Expo is co-located at the Santa Clara Convention Center with the 7th International Virtualization Conference & Expo.

Keynote & Breakout Session Speakers at the combined event at the Santa Clara Convention Center include:

DAY ONE KEYNOTE - November 2, 2009
The Time is Right for Enterprise Cloud Computing
by Richard Marcello, President of Systems & Technology, Unisys

Up to now you may have been reluctant to move your Enterprise application workloads to the cloud, fearing a lack of security in the cloud, compliance issues such as data location regulations and having to rewrite your applications. During his keynote, Rich Marcello will discuss the latest technologies and approaches that help knock down these barriers, creating the opportunity for attendees to now consider cloud managed services as part of their data center journey to secure "IT as a Service".

DAY TWO KEYNOTE: November 3, 2009
Cloud Computing Services at the Scale of the Internet
by Shelton Shugar, SVP Cloud Computing at Yahoo!

Yahoo! Cloud Services store and deliver web content, personalize content for consumers, optimize Ad selection and placement, improve search results, provide scalable virtual computing environments, and process and store enormous amounts of data to improve consumer experiences and drive innovation. This keynote will elaborate on how Yahoo! and consumers benefit from the Yahoo! Cloud Services that are in production today supporting web-serving properties and data processing environments.

DAY THREE KEYNOTE: November 4, 2009
Cloud Computing: Separating Hype from Reality
by Richard Sarwal, SVP of Development for Oracle Enterprise Manager

Enterprises large and small are drawn by the advantages of cloud computing - pay-for-use, self-service, elastic scalability tegration, compliance, lock-in, and long term costs of public clouds. Private clouds for the exclusive use of one enterprise can mitigate these concerns by giving the enterprise greater control. This keynote will explore how enterprises are likely to adopt public and private cloud computing, building on a foundation of virtualization infrastructure and management systems
