It's 2019. Globally routable IPv6 should be on by default, not some sort of advanced command-line only kludge requiring twiddling with load balancers and NAT the way it is now on Azure. See linode for simple and effective.17 votes

IPv4 addresses are running out and Azure has had a lot of problems with this, resolved by buying IPv4 address pools at a significant cost.
Some users and cloud deployments only require connectivity with on premises networks (either IPv4 or IPv6, not both).
Make IPv6 available for all services and allow the option of choosing what type of addresses are required (IPv4+IPv6 or IPv6 only).
● Giving each cloud service a /60 (or bigger) instead of a /64;
● Making IPv6 addresses static, since pool depletion is no longer an issue.60 votes
IPv6 has been a standard for years and ISPs are starting to roll out native IPv6 stacks to consumers. The time is now to support IPv6.1,607 votes
IPv6 in Azure VNET is currently previewing globally- in ALL Azure Public cloud regions.

A sample JSON template is posted in the quickstart repository: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/resources/templates/ipv6-in-vnet/
It would be nice if we could purchase elastic IPv6 blocks of IPs, then when setting up an endpoint for a VM we could select the specific IP from the block for the endpoint.53 votes
We have Public IP Prefix – you can reserve a block of IPv4 addresses.
