Infoblox informs Techzine that it is introducing BloxOne DDI, a DDI (DNS, DHCP and IPAM) cloud solution aimed at networks of companies’ branch offices. According to Infoblox, the increasing use of SaaS is a reason to improve the DDI infrastructure.

The aim of the service is to improve ease of use for employees, but also to improve remote management, visibility and reliability. BloxOne DDI is a virtualized platform and is cloud-managed.

The solution reduces the response times of SaaS applications by using local DNS name resolution. In addition, increased reliability is achieved by running control and management functions in the cloud. In addition, there is Zero Touch provisioning, which leads to easy management of multiple locations. This means that regulations can be entered remotely at all locations.

Infoblox also reports that recent research shows that networks of branch offices could be drastically improved. 75 percent of network administrators experience network interruptions several times a year, which in 99 percent of the time has a negative effect on the functioning of the organization. In addition, 49 percent of organizations need at least three hours to recover from such network problems.

Optimal use of SDWAN

According to Infoblox, optimizing the network structure for SD-WAN is crucial, as companies increasingly use small or large branch offices. Cloud applications such as Office 365, for example, would benefit from SD-WAN at multiple locations.

DDI is crucial for network connections, both within the data centres and towards the various locations. Unfortunately, organisations that introduce SDWAN often forget that their DDI platform has to grow with that solution, says Brandon Butler, Senior Research Analyst, Enterprise Networks at IDC. A lightweight DDI solution also helps organizations on location, for example by handling DNS queries locally, without having to return to the data center first. This will also allow a direct connection to public cloud platforms, allowing organisations to make maximum use of their SD-WAN investment.
