Are your cloud partners IPv6 ready?

As news emerges of the last available IPv4 block being allocated, attention has again turned to the adoption of IPv6 - the next-generation version of the Internet Protocol.

Despite the fact that IPv6 is almost 20 years old, adoption by the IT industry has been sluggish at best.

At Pentagull it is our mission to offer the latest advances in technology to our customers, and as such we are pleased to state that all of our hosted services provide out-of-the-box IPv6 support - here and now.

In fact, if you are reading this story via an ISP that supports IPv6 there is a good chance you are already accessing our site via the new protocol.

We first enabled IPv6 connectivity to our hosting platform in August 2017, and since then have seen a steady increase in the percentage of traffic utilising the new protocol.

To learn more about our IPv6 support and how we can help your organisation become IPv6 ready, please contact our Sales Team.

Pentagull's migration to Redis for high availability session state

Session state is an integral part of the ESB platform - we use it to keep track of logged in users, transactions that are in progress and a whole host of other bits and pieces that don't make sense to send to the client or store in the database. Because of this, the infrastructure that provides our session state needs to be highly available and resilient to both planned and unplanned events.
