SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Infoblox Inc., which provides DNS, DHCP, and IP address management (DDI), today introduced Infoblox DDI for Microsoft Azure, a virtual appliance that delivers network control and security to the Azure cloud computing platform. With the addition of Azure, Infoblox now provides DNS, DHCP, and IP address management capabilities —the category known as DDI— across multiple cloud platforms including AWS, OpenStack, VMware and traditional on-premises networks. According to a survey among 1,000 North American and European enterprise infrastructure technology decision makers, 59 percent will adopt a hybrid cloud model in the next 12 months 1. As companies are making the transition to a hybrid model, they have to operate in a multi-cloud, multi-platform environment which often includes traditional on-premises components as well. Legacy DDI approaches in the new cloud paradigm often negatively impact cloud agility due to manual processes, cause inconsistencies across hybrid deployments, and increase vulnerabilities that can lead to outages, security breaches and a poor end-user experience. "The network is the foundation for any business, and enabling our customers to keep their network strong, stable and secure, from any platform, is our top priority. By extending Infoblox's Actionable Network Intelligence to Microsoft Azure, we're offering our customers the ultimate in choice," said Scott Fulton executive vice president of products at Infoblox. "Legacy DNS infrastructure is one of the most exploited parts of a network and often the hidden crack in the foundation that derails a business especially with next-generation, dynamic initiatives like public and hybrid cloud. Like the Millennium Towers luxury high-rise in San Francisco that is sinking and tilting, problems at the foundation can be notoriously hard to diagnose and can have costly, devastating impacts. Infoblox helps increase business speed and agility by making it fast and easy for IT teams to take charge of core network services and security through one unified platform."
