Infoblox Announces Support for XenServer Open-Source Virtualization By Delivering a Virtual Appliance for Network Control

Infoblox 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 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 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 for malware protection, including optional integration with FireEye, 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.”

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
