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 IPv6.1,521 votes
Offering IPv6 support across Networking is a high priority for us and we are actively working to deliver this.
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.47 votes
We currently offer the option of reserving single IPv4 public addresses. Reservation of blocks of IPv4 and IPv6 public addresses is, unfortunately, still in work- we apologize for the delay.
On a related topic, Azure now offers load-balanced, dual-stack (IPv4+IPv6) Internet connectivity for Azure VMs. This native IPv6 connectivity (TCP, UDP, HTTP…inbound and outbound initiated) all the way to the VM enables a broad range of service architectures. IPv6 for Azure VMs is available now in most Azure regions. Data transfers over IPv6 are billed at the same rates as IPv4.
