Another day, another post in the Redpill Linpro SysAdvent tech blog. This time I'm discussing how we can use high-performing and inexpensive data centre switches as Internet routers. How? By putting the Internet routing table on a diet.

My post about the emergence of open networking and bare-metal switches is found behind todays's window in the Redpill Linpro SysAdvent calendar. https://www.redpill-linpro.com/sysadvent/2016/12/02/liberating-the-network.html

The documents I've written about SIIT-DC - describing how to facilitate «IPv4-as-a-Service» for IPv6-only data centres by has finally been published by the IETF as RFCs. This is a major milestone for me, as I've been tinkering on and off with this project here at +Redpill Linpro for about five years - and I can hardly believe it really is finished now. But it is! :-)

In case you're wondering how we've been doing with IPv6 deployment in Norway in 2015, the answer is: «not a whole lot». Norway is an IPv6 duopoly, and the deployments of two ISPs in question (Telenor and Get) growing very slowly. If we want to be ahead of the global average at the end of 2016, we better get a move on...

In is new post I explore how one can use UEFI and iPXE in order to boot servers over an IPv6-only network. Being able to do so is a major step towards being able to fully turn off IPv4 throughout our infrastructure, so I'm very pleased to find that it actually works quite well.

I'm about to introduce DHCPv6 support in Redpill Linpro's infrastructure. This post describes the first step: Evaluate which DHCPv6 relay implementations are available and figure out which one is the best suited for us.

I wrote a Varnish Module to help with manipulating SIIT-DC / RFC6052 addresses inside VCL. This should help make deploying IPv6-only data centres even more attainable for web site operators who are making use of the Varnish Cache. It was a fun project, especially since I got the chance to brush some dust and rust off my C skills, which haven't been used in the last 10 years or so.

My newest blog post is a step-by-step guide on how to take a standard router running OpenWrt and turning it into a Homenet router, using the web interface only. If you're interested in home networking and especially in the context of IPv6, Homenet is well worth spending some time getting familiar with. This guide will hopefully help you get started!
