Infoblox DNS Traffic Control

Direct web traffic to the most efficient location based on server availability, location, latency, or status.

Today, network performance equates to business performance. DNS-based traffic control, also known as global server load balancing (GSLB) is one of the most effective technologies for optimising network traffic to web and application servers.

Infoblox DNS Traffic Control adds GSLB functionality to Infoblox’s leading enterprise-grade DNS platform. This natural combination enables most organisations to eliminate the need for a separate GSLB solution (such as F5 GTM or Cisco GSS) — helping reduce the cost of purchasing and maintaining a standalone load balancer. DNS Traffic Control runs on the unique patented Infoblox Grid™ technology, so administrators can manage all DNS, DHCP, IPAM, and GSLB functionality from one centralised management GUI, saving significant time and effort.

Unified Management

Leveraging the Infoblox Grid, all DDI and GSLB functions are managed globally from a single console—delivering ease of use and significantly reduced management effort compared to multi-vendor deployments.

 

Integrated DNS-based Traffic Control

Acting as the authoritative DNS appliance, Infoblox DNS Traffic Control uses the DNS query/response mechanism to automatically return the IP address of the ideal server. Traffic is intelligently directed based upon server health, availability, and geolocation. Network administrators can also pre-define customised load balancing rules based on factors such as ratio, round-robin distribution, and network topology.
