Infoblox® Extends Its Automation Capabilities To Manage F5 BIG-IP® Global Traffic Manager™ Infrastructures

Infoblox Inc. (NYSE:BLOX) today announced availability of the Infoblox Load Balancer Manager, a new software module for Infoblox’s industry leading automated network control platform.

With the new Infoblox Load Balancer Manager, network administrators can centrally manage their F5 ® BIG-IP® Global Traffic Manager (GTM) appliances from the same intuitive management interface used to efficiently manage the Infoblox infrastructure. Leveraging the new module can reduce the complexity, risks, time and costs associated with administering F5 BIG-IP GTM appliances. This offering delivers on Infoblox’s strategy to reduce IT complexity and cost through automation of the tasks required to support complex computer networks.

Next generation data centers, virtualization, cloud and mobility are driving up the size and complexity of global server load balancing infrastructures. This is stretching enterprise IT teams’ task lists and driving the need for more automated network control solutions. These solutions can help IT teams scale by taking the burden of complex network control and highly repetitive daily operational tasks out of human hands.

Tracy Corbo, Principal Research Analyst at EMA says: “Today’s fast pace environments require higher levels of efficiency to remain competitive. Two key areas that can greatly improve the efficiency for IT organizations are centralization and automation. Central management for multiple areas of network operations reduces the need to run multiple consoles. Automation accelerates repeatable IT tasks and reduces errors often introduced by manual processes. The ongoing partnership between F5 and Infoblox provides tight integration that customers can take advantage of to streamline their internal IT processes.”

A network engineer at a large medical device manufacturer that is an F5 and Infoblox customer commented: “On our first glance at the Infoblox Load Balancer Manager, we can see real advantages of the single management console; above all, it allows a reduction in the steps required to manage our BIG-IP GTM devices. We like the ‘single pane’ of visibility into both our DNS and global traffic infrastructures, as well as the delegation capabilities that can be leveraged across geographies and teams. We expect the added BIG-IP GTM management capabilities to deliver tangible returns in time and cost reduction.”
