This topic describes how to create an IPv6 virtual private cloud (VPC). Only VPC-type Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instances support IPv6 addresses. To configure an IPv6 address for a Windows instance, you must first create an IPv6 VPC.

Background information

By default, VPCs use the IPv4 addressing protocol. You can enable the IPv6 addressing protocol based on your business requirements. For more information about IPv6 addresses, see IPv6 addresses.
