Ryan McGee, director, Microsoft Security Marketing, Microsoft Corp. said, "The cloud brings tremendous speed and business agility with an automated process for spinning up storage and compute, but network configuration like DNS across hybrid environments is often complex and is still managed manually. Now, Azure customers can implement Infoblox's DDI technology to automatically provision and manage core DNS infrastructure in Azure as part of the workflow, have visibility across disparate platforms, and accelerate the speed in which they can be up and running."1 Forrester, The Cloud Computing Playbook For 2016 , by Glenn O'Donnell, October 26, 2016 New Infoblox for Microsoft AzureInfoblox DDI for Azure manages DNS records and IP addresses and integrates seamlessly with an organization's existing Infoblox infrastructure.
