Microsoft Australia Seeks Address Space After APNIC Knockout
(The Hosting News) – APNIC, the Asian-Pacific based internet registry, recently cut back on IPv4 addresses forcing Microsoft Australia to seek additional space. Microsoft intends to secure more space temporarily within the next month or so according to platform architect Jorke Odolphi, who spoke with iTnews.
Microsoft recently completed the purchase of 700,000 addresses from Nortel due to the recent threat of IPv4 exhaustion. The length of which Microsoft would like to use the IPv4 addresses extends from July to September. The addresses are usually provided temporarily through APNIC for such tech events including the Microsoft TechEd Convention.
Microsoft’s TechEd conference is scheduled to take place from May 16th through the 19th in Atlanta, Georgia. IPv4 is currently accountable for over 4 billion web addresses. IPv4 costs are set to increase due to their rapid depletion.
