[Slashdot] - Brace Yourself, IPv6 is Coming


Recommended Posts

Paul Copplestone, co-founder of Supabase, writing in a blog post: On February 1st 2024, AWS will start charging for IPv4 addresses. This will cost $0.005 per hour -- around $4 month. A more accurate title for this post would be "Brace yourself, IPv4 is leaving," because I can't imagine many companies will pay to keep using the IPv4 address. While $4 is relatively small for an individual, my hypothesis is that AWS is a foundational layer to many infrastructure companies, like Supabase -- we offer a full EC2 instance for every Postgres database, so this would add millions to our AWS bill. Infrastructure companies on AWS have a few choices: 1. Pass on the cost to the customer. 2. Provide a workaround (for example, a proxy). 3. Only offer IPv6 and hope the world will catch up.
