Microsoft has reported that they experienced no incidents when they enabled IPv6 access for www.microsoft.com, www.bing.com and www.xbox.com for 24 hours on World IPv6 Day held on 8 June 2011 00:00 GMT. However, as expected, the proportion of IPv6 access is less than one percent, which is inline with other reports on World IPv6 Day.
World IPv6 Day, scheduled on 8 June this year, is a world-wide 24-hr trial of IPv6 readiness where participants will run IPv6 for their main domain for 24 hours. Some of the participants, such as Google and Facebook had already provided IPv6 access to their services prior to IPv6 Day. However, IPv6 access to these services are usually through a subdomain and not its main website – “ipv6.google.com” and “www.v6.facebook.com“, and as such are usually accessed by a niche minority.
