Nixu DDI Awarded Gold Medal for its IPv6 Support

Nixu Software has been awarded the IPv6 Ready Gold Certificate by the IPv6 Ready Forum for its DDI Software Appliance platform on 21st December 2011. The tests, which were carried out by an independent third party approved by the IPv6 Ready Forum, validated the interoperability between Nixu DDI Software Appliance platform and other networking products with IPv6 Ready Gold Certificate. Other manufacturers with IPv6 Ready Gold Certificate include Cisco Systems, Juniper Networks, RedHat, VMware, Hewlett-Packard and IBM.

The exhaustion of IPv4 address space in 2011 made IPv6 connectivity an unavoidable reality. While most organizations are yet to face an urgent need for introducing IPv6 support in their networks, they should nonetheless, plan ahead to ensure a smooth transition to a dual-stack environment. The increased complexity of the IPv6 address syntax and the vast size of the available address space mean that DDI services (DNS, DHCP, IPAM) play an even more pivotal role in managing these dual-stack networks.

Having introduced full dual-stack support already in 2004, Nixu Software has been a pioneer in the wide-scale adoption of IPv6 network connectivity. Juha Holkkola, the Managing Director of Nixu Software, said in this regard: “When we started out working with dual-stack environments, there was no strict standard, let alone any certification available. Now that IPv6 is going mainstream, we decided that it was a good time to have Nixu DDI platform’s world-class IPv6 support formally acknowledged. Our products sailed through the testing phase in a matter of weeks, which is pretty impressive considering that for some of our competitors it has taken over a year, while for others it seems completely impossible.”

To celebrate this achievement, Nixu Software has released a new version of howismydns.com, a free online test tool used to validate the configurations of public DNS servers. This latest version provides complete support for dual-stack networks, allowing fully transparent testing process for IPv4, IPv6 and dual-stack DNS deployments. In addition to IPv6 support, the new toolset also comes with a number of DNSSEC validation tests. To try out the latest IPv6 DNS and DNSSEC testing tools, please visit howismydns.com

FusionLayer has been working actively with open source software since its founding and, when and where appropriate, have sponsored and participated in development projects that have either led to the introduction of new open source software solutions or to enhancements in existing open source software products.

Open source software has been used in both individual customer projects and in the course of general product development. The open source softwares that FusionLayer has worked with includes, but is not limited to, different Linux (e.g. CentOS) and BSD O/S variants, ISC's BIND and DHCPD, OpenSSH, Apache HTTP Server, PHP-module and PSAD. Where open source software has been used as part of FusionLayer Products, FusionLayer has taken the necessary steps to make sure that no derivative work has been produced, that the open source software modules have been used 'as is', and that open source software has been used as granted by their licenses.

Of the open source software listed above, the following products have been used in, in connection with, or distributed with, FusionLayer Products:

  • Apache HTTP Server
  • ISC's BIND
  • ISC's DHCPD

In addition to the open source modules listed above, FusionLayer Products contain proprietary code that is either owned by FusionLayer, Inc. or has been licensed from third-parties. Further, some FusionLayer Products are based on proprietary methods protected by patents and/or pending-patents regardless of whether or not open source software has been used in their implementation. Therefore, FusionLayer, Inc. respectfully asks that its products and/or their solution architecture are not copied or imitated in any way that would infringe FusionLayer, Inc's Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs).

In order to identify, evaluate, and manage the potential risks associated with the usage of open source software, FusionLayer, Inc. has done significant due diligence on the history of the individual open source projects and the different licensing models used to license the open source software prior to including them in any FusionLayer Product.

Generally speaking, this could involve but would not necessarily be limited to:

  • Negotiating a license agreement with the owner of the patent
