IPv6 address for api.backendless.com

Hi Backendless Team,

will there be a IPv6 address for api.backendless.com in the near future? Some customer IT department asked as they are moving to a ipv6 environment only. Mainly to get rid of legacy IPv4 ;)

Also in our company we will get some new servers without any IPv4 address which have to access the API of our app.

Best regards,

Jonas

Jonas,

Does it mean your new hardware is not dual-stack? (supports only IPv6)? Do you plan to have a converter in place? Without one you'd be cutting yourself off from a very large group of Internet-based services.

Regards,

Mark

There will be some servers (about 20) which have only a v6 address as they are only "work nodes" and some customer facing ones with dual stack. But we do not want to give all of them a v4 address, das the v4 subnets from the RIPE are rare and expensive. So not all servers get a v4 address.

But these "work nodes" would have to access the backendless app to gather information and we didn't planned so far to setup a v6 to v4 proxy to enable v4 access for these nodes. But as it seems we have to, as there is no ipv6 address for api.backendless.com

Best regards
