Integrated DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management (DDI), with Massive Scalability and Automation

The explosion of IP addresses and the rapid transitions to IPv6, virtualization and cloud computing — not to mention the onslaught of new networking and personal devices (such as smart phones and tablets) — have put extreme pressure on IT to deliver network services that are automated, scalable and always on. Tracking IP addresses by spreadsheets and/or relying on vulnerable server based DNS/DHCP services are not realistic options anymore. The solution to these problems is a combination of integrated, highly scalable, fault tolerant, 24×7-available DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management.

Active DDI
Infoblox Trinzic DDI™ is the world’s leading appliance-based, integrated DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management (DDI) product. Trinzic DDI employs state-of-the-art IP address management and automated error-checking technologies that are seamlessly integrated with Microsoft DNS/DHCP servers, and supports the Infoblox Grid™ architecture that enables the most advanced, highly available, fault tolerant and scalable solution in the world. With Trinzic DDI you can leverage your existing investments in Microsoft, while simultaneously incorporating collaborative IP address management and ensuring 99.999% network services uptime. We call this trend of automation, scale, realtime visualization, performance and integration “Active DDI,” which only Infoblox offers. “Active DDI” is the heart of Trinzic DDI and incorporates dynamic, automated control of network services to ensure non-stop operation.

Meet Business Goals with Massive Scalability and Always On Availability
Trinzic DDI delivers massive scalability to cope with the vast proliferation of IP-based devices, web-based apps and the explosion of IPv6 addresses. Through unique and patented high availability Infoblox Grid™ technology, Trinzic DDI ensures network reliability and 24×7 operations. The Infoblox Grid provides resilient network services, failover, recovery and seamless maintenance for an Infoblox deployment inside a single building, across a networked campus or across geographical location. The Infoblox Grid establishes a distributed relationship between individual or paired appliances to remove single points of failure and other operational risks inherent in legacy DNS, DHCP and IP address management infrastructure.

Adding Infoblox Multi-Grid Management technology to Trinzic DDI enables the centralized management of multiple Grids, scalable to thousands of hosts, and includes visual representation of both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.

Conquer the Challenges of IPv6, Virtualization, Cloud Transition and Growth

Trinzic DDI includes full support for IPv6 and related protocols, such as DHCP64 and NAT64, to enable a smooth transition to the next generation IP networking. Fully functional IPv6 services and management are part of the Trinzic DDI solution, as are services and management for dual-stack IPv4/IPv6.

With today’s rapid transition from physical to virtual environments, Trinzic DDI leads the way by providing extensive support for virtualization through its ability to identify the IP addresses of virtual machines, the location and state of virtual switches and other related transitional information to help bridge the gap between the two environments.

Leverage your existing investment and integrate seamlessly with Microsoft DNS and DHCP services

Trinzic DDI provides the capability for central management of both Infoblox appliances and Microsoft DNS and DHCP servers, which can lead to lower costs and a more efficient use of IT professionals’ most valuable resource: time. Such a tightly integrated solution does not require any agent software on clients or servers because it uses native Microsoft RPC APIs to interface with Microsoft DNS and DHCP services. The solution automatically synchronizes all changes made by either Microsoft or Infoblox tool sets.
