IPv6 / Dual-Stack in Kubernetes - Why, When, Where and How?


Watch Rastislav’s talk at ContainerDays 2022

In Kubernetes 1.23, the dual-stack networking feature that allows simultaneous usage of both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses in Kubernetes clusters was promoted to stable. In this talk, I will explain why we should care about IPv6 in Kubernetes clusters, and when it makes sense to use dual-stack. I will also give an overview on different levels of IPv6 support across several cloud providers, to help with choosing the one which matches your dual-stack use-case best. Last but not least, I will also describe how dual-stack works in Kubernetes clusters and showcase that in a live demo.
