On this week’s Structure Show, DigitalOcean CEO explains why simplicity (and love???) are key to his company’s success in the hyper-competitive IaaS world.
Digital Ocean needs a ton more IP addresses for all those compute “droplets” it runs for customers. So it’s moving all its data centers to IPv6 by years’ end.
It really is time to move to IPv6 if even Microsoft can’t dredge up any more U.S. IPv4 addresses.
AWS, Google, Microsoft et al. have a huge appetite for unique IP addresses, but except for Amazon’s ELB, they don’t support IPv6. Expect that to change in the near future.
More people are on the internet and overall global broadband connection speeds are faster. That’s the good news from Akamai’s quarterly State of the Internet report.
Spunky IaaS player DigitalOcean adds much more capacity and private networking capabilities in new Amsterdam facility.

Long-haul networks aren’t the only pipes getting 100 gigabit upgrades these days. On Tuesday Verizon said it is upgrading the metro networks in at least seven U.S. cities to meet the demand for broadband at the edge. Looks like we’re closing in on the terabit age.
