Ipv6 for the content provider

Hello,


All the recurring threads about prefix length, security posture, ddos,
consumer CPE support have been somewhat interesting to my service
provider alter ego. Ipv6 is definitely on folks minds this year. The
threads seem a lot less trollish as well. It appears some significant
progress is being made, and peoples opinions are firming up. Hopefully
this will help move ipv6 adoption forward.

I have recently turned up an ipv6 tunnel with he.net and have end to end
connectivity. I'm using pfsense as my routing platform. It was pretty
easy (about 10 minutes of total work I think). So I can connect to
various ipv6 enabled sites on the interwebz. This seems to be the first
step in deployment.


For the most part, I'm a data center/application administrator/content
provider kind of guy. As such, I want to provide all my web content over
ipv6, and support ipv6 SMTP.  What are folks doing in this regard?

Do I just need to assign ip addresses to my servers, add AAAA records to
my DNS server and that's it? I'm running PowerDNS for DNS, Apache for
WWW. Postfix for SMTP.

Feel free to point me at any good manuals and say RTFM :)
