Infoblox gets plugged in to VMware

clouds3Automated network control outfit Infoblox has integrated its Infoblox IP Address Management (IPAM) Plug-in for VMware into the vCloud Automation Centre.

The company said that the plug-in is designed to deliver cloud infrastructure resources on-demand to provide maximum business agility when running Vmware..

The company claims that the software speeds up the set up and manual setup and provisioning of IP addresses for virtual machines by more than 300 per cent. It means that virtual machines can be dynamically provisioned, migrated and shut down by an administrator in minutes.

Senior Director, Cloud Management Marketing, at VMware, Rob Smoot, said that incorporating the Infoblox IPAM plug-in with VMware vCloud Automation Centre lets businesses gain greater flexibility and accelerated time to value in automated cloud environments.

“With the help of automated IP address allocation, including DNS management and DNS record updates, enterprise IT departments are provided with the capability of full control for high-quality IP address management,” he said.

The software is available as a no-charge extension to the Infoblox DNS, DHCP, IP Address Management (DDI) product.

It is mostly aimed at large VMware virtualised networks where manual allocation is a nightmare.
