Infoblox and Nutanix have announced that Infoblox Core DDI and Cloud Platform appliance products, which are part of the Nutanix Elevate Program, have been certified as Nutanix Ready. Infoblox will support its customers with the integration of Nutanix and Infoblox NIOS DNS, DHCP, IPAM (DDI) solutions, including NIOS virtual appliances running on Nutanix AHV and Nutanix Calm support for orchestrated DNS/IPAM workflow. NIOS is now the only DDI solution that runs on and supports automated workload orchestration on Nutanix Enterprise Cloud.
The NIOS integration with Nutanix will automate the steps of IP address allocation and DNS updates during spin up and spin down of virtual machines, addressing problems caused by lengthy, manual workload provisioning and will further simplify infrastructure management by running completely in the Nutanix environment.
“We’re thrilled to announce this new integration with Nutanix,” said Dave Signori, Senior Director, Product Management at Infoblox. “It enables our customers to realize the benefits of automated DDI network services deployment and workload orchestration, along with the simplicity and security that hyper-converged architecture brings.”
“As IT processes are becoming increasingly automated, we are committed to empowering IT professionals with the tools they need to run their networks with more efficiency, security, and reliability,” said Prasad Athawale, Sr Director, Strategic Alliances and Partnerships at Nutanix. “We are looking forward to partnering with Infoblox to provide automated workload orchestration on our platform.”
According to the IDC, “DDI platforms are essential components to building a modern data center that relies heavily on automation and programmability. Cloud computing platforms have created a new paradigm for hosting and accessing applications, and they have also driven IT organizations to modernize their internal datacenter operations to provide cloudlike agility on their own premises.”
Infoblox sees continued, steady growth in the DDI market as enterprises continue to automate DDI and the number of IP addresses in enterprise networks continues to rise. With this partnership, Infoblox can continue to deliver a safe and secure next-level networking experience to these enterprises.
