Dual-stack support in Azure CNI Overlay for AKS is now in public preview. This preview release enhances AKS networking capabilities, allowing both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses to coexist and operate within the same Cluster, offering greater flexibility and connectivity options. The Azure CNI Overlay model, known for its performance and scaling merits, now extends its advantages to dual-stack networking, ensuring seamless communication with external systems operating on either IP address family. This feature not only addresses the growing demand for IPv6 support but also facilitates a smooth transition for enterprises adapting to the evolving network standards.
