Infoblox Enhances Network Control and Automated Provisioning of Network
Resources for Private Clouds Running on VMware
VMworld US 2014
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- August 18, 2014
Infoblox Inc. (NYSE:BLOX), the network control company, today announced that
it has enhanced the Infoblox IPAM Plug-in for VMware vCenter™ Orchestrator™,
VMware vCloud Director^®, VMware vCloud^® Automation Center for Desktop and
VMware vCloud^® Automation Center™ for Server, adding powerful new
capabilities for DNS, DHCP, and IP address management (DDI) for private cloud
The Infoblox IPAM plug-in for VMware, introduced in June 2013, eliminates the
need to manually set up network services for VMware environments. By
automatically provisioning and de-provisioning IP addresses and DNS records
for virtual machines as they are created, moved, and removed, the plug-in can
dramatically reduce the time required to bring up services and can increase
network agility while lowering operating costs.
New features in the Infoblox IPAM plug-in for VMware include:
*Full support for managing IP address and DNS records across overlapping
and non-overlapping networks in multi-tenant environments—the most
requested feature of VMware enterprise customers. This allows networks to
be brought together, such as during mergers or acquisitions, without
requiring complex reconfiguration of IP addresses.
*Ability to assign IP addresses and DNS records to virtual machines based
on network metadata such as country, state, building, etc., by using
Infoblox Extensible Attributes. This automates the previously
time-consuming and error-prone process of assigning appropriate IP address
to new virtual machines.
*Simplified VMware vCloud Automation Center network provisioning by
eliminating the need to manually create network profiles in vCloud
Automation Center. All IP and DNS configurations are tracked and managed
directly within Infoblox.
“Infoblox is helping optimize network automation in virtualized data centers,”
said Rob Smoot, senior director, Cloud Management Marketing, VMware. “The new
capabilities Infoblox is introducing make it possible to automatically
provision network resources in minutes instead of hours or days, as well as
efficiently manage multiple networks of virtual machines through a single user
“VMware continues to set the industry standard for private cloud deployments,”
said Scott Fulton, executive vice president of products at Infoblox. “Infoblox
is committed to helping IT organizations maximize agility and cost savings
through strong partnership with VMware and continued innovation in our cloud
network automation solutions.”
The Infoblox IPAM Plug-in for VMware vCenter Orchestrator, VMware vCloud
Director, VMware vCloud Automation Center for Desktop and VMware vCloud
Automation Center for Server is available now and is free for existing
Infoblox customers. More information is available at
VMware and Infoblox will jointly host a webinar on “IPAM Automation for Cloud”
on Tuesday, August 19, at 10:00am Pacific (1:00pm Eastern). Rich Bourdeau,
group marketing manager at VMware, and Peter Rizk, director of technical
marketing at Infoblox, will describe how to use vCloud Automation Center with

addresses in minutes. Click here to register.
