Just to add to the Barracuda front - when we bought some of their gear we
were told that IPv6 was in the plans.  Granted that they gave us no timeline
we recently went back to them explaining that we need it *now* .. they told
us it's based on customer demand and maybe by end of year...;(

These are my notes from last fall:

A10 Networks: today
Barracuda Networks: nothing on website; 
Foundry (Brocade) ServerIron: they support IPv6 in the 11.x loads.
Coyote: "We can commit to the fact that the Coyote Point Systems Equalizers
in production today (GX platform family) will support IPV6.  I suspect that
the earliest you will see this capability is 4th Quarter 2010."
F5 BigIP: yes
Kemp: does not have a solution, though it is on the horizon
Zeus: zxtm has support

Hi there,

I am looking about ... IPv6 Load Balancer, I did some research (not so long,
but some few months ago), but it seems that Load Balancer vendors are not
too much ready for LB ipv6.

I'm going to use OpenBSD Relayd to replace my old... F5 Big/IP... But... If
there is a opensource way to make real LB and usuable I will be pleased to
