Nixu DDI Software Appliance Platform Awarded Gold Medal for Its IPv6 Support on 21st December 2011Nixu Software has been awarded the IPv6 Ready Gold Certificate by the IPv6 Ready Forum for its DDI Software Appliance platform on 21st December 2011. The tests, which were carried out by an independent third party approved by the IPv6 Ready Forum, validated the interoperability between Nixu DDI Software Appliance platform and other networking products with IPv6 Ready Gold Certificate. Other manufacturers with IPv6 Ready Gold Certificate include Cisco Systems, Juniper Networks, RedHat, VMware, Hewlett-Packard and IBM.

The exhaustion of IPv4 address space in 2011 made IPv6 connectivity an unavoidable reality. While most organizations are yet to face an urgent need for introducing IPv6 support in their networks, they should nonetheless, plan ahead to ensure a smooth transition to a dual-stack environment. The increased complexity of the IPv6 address syntax and the vast size of the available address space mean that DDI services (DNS, DHCP, IPAM) play an even more pivotal role in managing these dual-stack networks.

Having introduced full dual-stack support already in 2004, Nixu Software has been a pioneer in the wide-scale adoption of IPv6 network connectivity. Juha Holkkola, the Managing Director of Nixu Software, said in this regard: "When we started out working with dual-stack environments, there was no strict standard, let alone any certification available. Now that IPv6 is going mainstream, we decided that it was a good time to have Nixu DDI platform's world-class IPv6 support formally acknowledged. Our products sailed through the testing phase in a matter of weeks, which is pretty impressive considering that for some of our competitors it has taken over a year, while for others it seems completely impossible."

To celebrate this achievement, Nixu Software has released a new version of howismydns.com, a free online test tool used to validate the configurations of public DNS servers. This latest version provides complete support for dual-stack networks, allowing fully transparent testing process for IPv4, IPv6 and dual-stack DNS deployments. In addition to IPv6 support, the new toolset also comes with a number of DNSSEC validation tests. To try out the latest IPv6 DNS and DNSSEC testing tools, please visit howismydns.com.
