Infoblox Enhances Network Control and Automated Provisioning of Network Resources for Private Clouds Running on VMware
|By Business Wire
|August 18, 2014 03:01 AM EDT
Infoblox Inc. (NYSE:BLOX), the network control company, today announced
that it has enhanced the Infoblox IPAM Plug-in for VMware vCenter™
Orchestrator™, VMware vCloud Director®, VMware vCloud®
Automation Center for Desktop and VMware vCloud® Automation
Center™ for Server, adding powerful new capabilities for DNS, DHCP, and
IP address management (DDI) for private cloud networks.
The Infoblox IPAM plug-in for VMware, introduced in June 2013,
eliminates the need to manually set up network services for VMware
environments. By automatically provisioning and de-provisioning IP
addresses and DNS records for virtual machines as they are created,
moved, and removed, the plug-in can dramatically reduce the time
required to bring up services and can increase network agility while
lowering operating costs.
New features in the Infoblox IPAM plug-in for VMware include:
Full support for managing IP address and DNS records across
overlapping and non-overlapping networks in multi-tenant
environments—the most requested feature of VMware enterprise
customers. This allows networks to be brought together, such as during
mergers or acquisitions, without requiring complex reconfiguration of
Ability to assign IP addresses and DNS records to virtual machines
based on network metadata such as country, state, building, etc., by
using Infoblox Extensible Attributes. This automates the previously
time-consuming and error-prone process of assigning appropriate IP
address to new virtual machines.
Simplified VMware vCloud Automation Center network provisioning by
eliminating the need to manually create network profiles in vCloud
Automation Center. All IP and DNS configurations are tracked and
managed directly within Infoblox.
“Infoblox is helping optimize network automation in virtualized data
centers,” said Rob Smoot, senior director, Cloud Management Marketing,
VMware. “The new capabilities Infoblox is introducing make it possible
to automatically provision network resources in minutes instead of hours
or days, as well as efficiently manage multiple networks of virtual
machines through a single user interface.”
“VMware continues to set the industry standard for private cloud
deployments,” said Scott Fulton, executive vice president of products at
Infoblox. “Infoblox is committed to helping IT organizations maximize
agility and cost savings through strong partnership with VMware and
continued innovation in our cloud network automation solutions.”
The Infoblox IPAM Plug-in for VMware vCenter Orchestrator, VMware vCloud
Director, VMware vCloud Automation Center for Desktop and VMware vCloud
Automation Center for Server is available now and is free for existing
Infoblox customers. More information is available at http://www.infoblox.com/products/ip-address-management/vmware.
VMware and Infoblox will jointly host a webinar on “IPAM Automation for
Cloud” on Tuesday, August 19, at 10:00am Pacific (1:00pm Eastern). Rich
Bourdeau, group marketing manager at VMware, and Peter Rizk, director of
technical marketing at Infoblox, will describe how to use vCloud
Automation Center with Infoblox DDI to automatically provision and
de-provision virtual machine IP addresses in minutes. Click here

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years?
This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.
