Now with fibre available in my area (Dunedin), I would like to be able to have multiple ip's into my home server. Eg if I am running a dell R610 with some say 6 or so vm's, it would be really handy if some of these could be networked to different ip's. Eg I would want something like a /29 on ipv4 (6 ips) or a /122 on ipv6 (64 addresses). That way I could easily run multiple (non-critical) services from my home. Even a small business account where they are not trying to gouge the price difference would be fine...
Maybe this is still not easily possible but it seems a real shame given that we now have fantastically high internet speeds, 1Gbps down, 500Mbps up. (In actual fact I wouldn't need anything even approaching these speeds.) Collocation in nz is still relatively expensive (last time I did the pricing rounds) and even though we have some servers colocated it would be handy to have some boxes to hack around on / experiment etc. (But at NZ$500 to NZ$1500 for a single U1 colocation per year) playing around is pretty expensive for a couple of boxes.
So is this possible / not insanely bleeding edgely difficult? If so any recommendations on who to go with?
(Currently our router is an HG659b if it makes any difference. Even if this costs like NZ$500 to set up it would be quite nice to do so...)
