Infoblox Announces Support for XenServer Open-Source Virtualization By Delivering a Virtual Appliance for Network Control
SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Infoblox (News - Alert) Inc. (NYSE:BLOX), the automated network control company, today
introduced Infoblox Virtual Appliance Software for XenServer, bringing
the full range of Infoblox enterprise-grade network control technologies
to the open-source XenServer virtualization platform.
The industry-leading portfolio of Infoblox products deliver critical
network services such as DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management (IPAM) - a
category called DDI - that improve network agility, reduce operating
costs and increase network security and reliability.
Infoblox provides its DDI solution through multiple form factors: 1) as
a physical appliance with its Trinzic® line of products; 2)
as a virtual appliance on Cisco and Riverbed (News - Alert) networking hardware; and 3)
as a virtual appliance on the three leading server virtualization
hypervisors - VMware ESXi, Microsoft Hyper-V and now XenServer,
which became a free open-source project in June 2013.
Infoblox virtual appliance software for the VMware ESXi, Microsoft (News - Alert)
Hyper-V and XenServer platforms gives network managers uncompromised DDI
on their virtual server platform of choice, with features that include:
Integrated DDI: Industry-leading integrated DNS, DHCP and IP
Address Management in one resilient solution to simplify delivery of
these critical network services.
Single Pane of Glass Management: Centralized management of all
Infoblox DDI appliances, whether physical or virtual, from one common
user interface, with a single database for all network data.
Advanced Discovery: Fully automated and configurable layer 2
and layer 3 network device discovery integrated with IPAM, providing
visibility to every device connected to the network along with its IP,
DNS and DHCP history.
Secured DNS: Unique DHCP device identification "fingerprinting"
to easily block rogue devices; and DNS Firewall fr malware
protection, including optional integration with FireEye (News - Alert), to help
prevent DNS-based malware callbacks to known bad domains and domains
tied to zero-day threats.
"Many of our clients are moving to what we call a 'bifurcation
strategy,' where they are running both physical and virtual servers,
with both commercial and open-source virtualization platforms," said
David Titov, Practice Director at Trace3, a systems integrator in
Irvine, Calif. "We are glad to see Infoblox meeting the needs of these
clients by offering virtualized DDI across the XenServer, VMware ESXi
and Microsoft Hyper-V platforms."
"DDI is a critical network service, and our goal is to provide our
customers with the widest range of choices when it comes to their
network platform," said Arya Barirani, Vice President of Product
Marketing at Infoblox. "Whether they are deploying our appliances on
physical platforms, virtual platforms or a combination of both, our
customers will benefit from the same powerful tools, easy-to-use
interface and industry-leading DDI functionality."
