Or is it?! Do you feel burnt out on hearing from vendors who don't have any new or interesting perspectives to share on the seemingly overplayed topic of Cloud?

It has now been five years since World IPv6 Day and four years since World IPv6 Launch. The long-term global Internet transition to IPv6 is well underway and increasingly entering the mainstream. The American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) exhausted its free pool of IPv4 addresses in September 2015, following all of the other registries except for Africa's AFRINIC (which is on track to exhaust its IPv4 free pool in
