Infoblox Intros New Appliances

Infoblox announced availability of a new appliance, the Infoblox-250

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Infoblox Inc. today announced availability of a new appliance, the Infoblox-250, ideally suited for branch/remote office sites – extending the company’s family of “right-sized” appliances for distributed enterprises. Additionally, Infoblox introduced today significant enhancements to its unique NIOS™ software that increases IP address management (IPAM) capabilities for its growing core network services appliance family and strengthens IPv6 support, helping preserve core network services infrastructure investments.

The resiliency and manageability of core network services, including domain name resolution (DNS), IP address assignment (DHCP), IP address management (IPAM), authentication (RADIUS), configuration (TFTP/HTTP), network time (NTP) and others – directly impact the ability to operate all applications, such as email, web services, Microsoft Active Directory, Voice over IP (VoIP) and wireless.

According to IDC (“Worldwide IP Address Management 2007-2011 Forecast and Analysis;” doc #205884, April 2007), appliances, which offer inherent security, deployment and manageability advantages, are emerging as the preferred approach for delivering these services, instead of general-purpose server and software (aka: white box) solutions.

However, extensive deployment of appliances at branch offices has been deterred in some organizations in part because acquisition costs have been perceived as too high for branches and smaller sites. The new Infoblox-250 appliance smashes the “white-box barrier,” enabling organizations to gain the benefits of appliances with virtually no cost premium over conventional white box servers.

This is especially valuable in large distributed enterprises with multiple branch offices, such as retail points of presence, warehouses and health-care clinics, where there are little to no IT resources to maintain legacy systems or address local problems and yet local survivability of core network services is critical.
