Support IPv6 Throughout the Azure Platform
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.
IPv6 in Azure VNET is currently previewing globally- in ALL Azure Public cloud regions.
Announcement (Service Update): https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/public-preview-microsoft-adds-full-ipv6-support-for-azure-vnets/
Links to Documentation & Samples
Full documentation including sample scripts is available here: https://aka.ms/IPv6ForAzureVNETdoc
A sample JSON template is posted in the quickstart repository: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/resources/templates/ipv6-in-vnet/
Also ridiculous that VMs and cloud services don't support IPv6. I currently have to use port mappings to access different VMs behind the same cloud service in SSH, instead of a unique global IPv6 address on port 22

Yes, many of the Microsoft Service do not Support IPv6, an example is also DirSync, which is often used in Hybrid Scenarios.
Alexandre Gauthier commented
It is kind of ridiculous for Microsoft to push the stack so hard in all the software and not support it inside its own cloud infrastructure.

How can you state youve played a leading role in getting customers to support it but then not support it on azure??
Glad that you are working on it
Glad to see your reponse. Hopefully this will be integrated with the "BYON" mentioned elsewhere?

Yeah! Finally - under review! ;)
IPv6 is the future, the sooner it is implemented, the sooner everyone gains experience.
