New Infoblox Solution Helps Service Providers Keep Up With The Demands Of Social Media And Mobile Data

Infoblox Inc. (NYSE:BLOX) today announced availability of a new automated network control appliance that enables Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to deliver a fast and trusted Internet experience to their social media hungry users around the globe.

Domain name system (DNS) resolution is a foundational Internet infrastructure service required to connect users to online applications. If DNS systems are down, the connections grind to a halt. With the increasing growth of users and devices on the Internet accessing social media and other applications, DNS query demand volume is rapidly exponentially rising.

To help distribute the load and provide rapid DNS query responses, ISPs have traditionally relied on banks of general-purpose servers running open source software. This approach has performance, security and reliability limitations. It also requires costly manual IT administration time due to the scores of servers requiring individual maintenance and upgrades. Infoblox addresses these legacy system shortcomings with the new Infoblox 4030 DNS Caching Appliance.

“Social media and mobile data are driving an explosion of DNS queries,” says Kevin Dickson, Vice President of Product Management at Infoblox. “Service providers are struggling to maintain an infrastructure that can handle the growing query volume to deliver the best online user experience and protect against malicious threats without cutting into their already thin operational margins. With superior performance, scalability, security, and manageability, Infoblox’s new appliance is designed to directly address these challenges and deliver a fast and trusted end user Internet experience.”

Infoblox Delivers a Dedicated, Fast and Trusted DNS System

The dedicated, carrier-grade Infoblox 4030 DNS Caching Appliance can achieve more than one million DNS queries per second; this is more than 25 times the performance of most legacy solutions. With Infoblox’s dedicated appliance approach and unique Grid technology™ that links multiple Infoblox appliances together, ISPs can field billions of DNS queries per second, easily extend robust DNS systems to the network edge for resilient service delivery where demand is the highest, and efficiently maintain the systems with central management capabilities.

With Infoblox Grid technology, administrators can implement changes, such as a software upgrade, with the touch of a button across multiple appliances, saving significant administrative time. To achieve this kind of performance and manageability with most legacy solutions would require 25 times the number of devices and an army of administrators to maintain.
