RPi colocation is running out of IPv4 addresses

An anonymous reader writes "Raspberry Pi colocation is free housing for popular cheap mini computers. Currently it runs more than 600 of them and has more than 1000 new requests in the queue. Biggest problem is number of free IPv4 addresses. RIPE is no longer assigning and RPi colocation is running out of addresses.

Our IPv4 addresses are flying out the door and we have actually only a few hundred left. We also can't get new ones from RIPE, so we'll have to get creative soon.

So move... (2)

Running out of IPv4 space? There's a ready-made solution. Move to IPv6. This should not be a "We'll have to get creative" issue. This should be a "We anticipated this long ago and built IPv6 into our devices from square one" issue.
