Amazon Aurora now offers customers the option to use Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) addresses in their Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) on new and existing Amazon Aurora instances. Customers moving to IPv6 can simplify their network stack by running their databases on a network that supports both IPv4 and IPv6.

The continued growth of the internet is exhausting available Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) addresses. IPv6 increases the number of available addresses by several orders of magnitude and customers no longer need to manage overlapping address spaces in their VPCs. Customers can standardize their applications on the new version of Internet Protocol by moving to IPv6 with a few clicks in the AWS Management Console.

Support for IPv6 on Amazon Aurora is available in all AWS Commercial and AWS GovCloud (US) regions where Amazon Aurora is available. See here for a full listing of our Regions. Get started with the AWS CLI or AWS Management Console.

To learn more about configuring your environment for IPv6, please refer to the IPv6 User Guide.
