Well, if your already setup, then you wont have to worry too much. At the current rate, the general opinion is that new hosts will have to be assigned IPv6 addresses by 2012(if the world doesn’t end). So if those hosts wish to communicate with the other IPv4 servers, using the IPv4 network infrastructure, hosts will have to start understanding both IPv4 and IPv6. At least till the transition is complete. To make the transition as smooth as possible, various transition mechanisms have been put forward, of which RFC 4213(Basic Transition Mechanisms for IPv6 Hosts and Routers) will make an interesting read for any Webhost who plans to buy servers after 2012. More after the jump.

Ok, I lied. OpenDS will not help you put the elephant inside the fridge. But why did you want to put that poor creature there, in the first place? No, I’m not going to talk about elephants or fridges. Today, its all about the process of “putting”. From the very beginning in the history of computing, storing data has been a big question. If we look at the road-map, we can highlight the growth something like this:
- How to save data?
- How to save data efficiently so as lesser space is consumed?
- How to save data, so that it takes very less space, and can be retrieved fast?
April 29 was pretty big day for all of us who make our living in the net. We all had the great privilege to see the arch-rivals in the industry, Microsoft and Apple, both of them supporting the same cause.
