Infoblox launch Cloud Automation and DNS Traffic Control

Infoblox recently released the latest version of their NIOS software, version 7.0. This release is packed full of features for Infoblox’s flagship DDI product family. In addition, version 7.0 brings to market two compelling new products: DNS Traffic Control (Global Server Load Balancing integrated with industry-leading DNS) and Cloud Network Automation (scalable automation of DDI functions for Private Cloud environments).

DNS Traffic Control

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.

Cloud Network Automation

Enterprises are increasingly building private clouds to deliver agile, low-cost IT services to their line of business (LOB) stakeholders. While much of the storage and compute management for private clouds is automated, delivery of critical network services is still performed manually. This leads to slower application deployments, increased risk of errors, and significant cost associated with manual tasks.

Infoblox delivers critical network services for the cloud, including DNS, DHCP, and IP address management. Infoblox also provides greater visibility into virtual machines and tenants, empowering administrators to get a real-time view into cloud resources as they are provisioned and enabling enterprises to roll out applications faster and to deliver more reliable business services.
