This is the main reason I refer clients to Netlify as I use IPv6 support to measure the maturity of a platform and its engineers.
Working for AWS and working with hundreds of customers a whopping 0 of them ever required ipv6.
In advance I'll apologize for being this direct, answers can get fishy sometimes these days, so I will parameterize my query, so to speak:
What portion (concrete numbers) are at minimum being earmarked for supporting open source projects and devs directly? I don't mean t-shirt budget and things, I mean what is the total amount of funds that will be donated directly to open source projects and devs?
So what are your plans for this funding? I know that Vercel just raised $100M a few months ago (it seems).
- Support open-source projects
- Make the Web Edge-first
- Build the end-to-end development platform
- Grow our team
Happy to dive further into any of these. We did raise our Series C in June: https://vercel.com/blog/series-c-102m-continue-building-the-....
There's also a real question of whether Vercel and Netlify are really at the edge when they’re mainly running in AWS, GCP etc data centers rather than deploying their own hardware at edge locations, ISPs etc.
Don't get me wrong I think Vercel and Netlify are interesting but they seem to talk about being ‘on the edge’ while they really aren’t ATM
