Amazon Database Migration Service (Amazon DMS) now offers customers the option to use Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) addresses in their Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) on new and existing DMS Replication Instances. Customers moving to IPv6 can simplify their network stack by running their DMS Replication Instances 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 several fold 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 Amazon Web Services Management Console or Amazon CLI.

To learn more about configuring your environment for IPv6, please refer to the DMS technical documentation.
