Explaining IPv6 Made Easy

We’ve been doing a lot of IPv6 communication since the end of last year and recently launched IPv6 for most Rackspace products, excluding Cloud Servers. Many of you are familiar with IPv6 but what do you say when you’re trying to explain this change to someone like your mom or dad? We made a fun creative that will help you explain IPv6 in the simplest of terms. Take a look and feel free to share with others!

Before leaving in 2016, Angela ran integrated marketing campaigns for Rackspace. She started in 2003 and did everything from Linux support, account management, sales, product marketing and marketing. She left Rackspace in 2005 to work for PEER 1 Hosting but returned in 2009 because she was interested in the cloud computing movement. Angela is a strong believer in the power of storytelling.


  1. That is quite nice, but I have two issues with it:

    1.) “parallel version of the Internet” is scary. Sure, it’s technically true, but the difference is behind the scenes and invisible to the user. Except when things go wrong.

    2.) The example IP addresses should be from the netblocks reserved for those purposes. ;-D (192.0.2/24, 198.51.100/24, 203.0.113/24 and 2001:db8::/32.)
