Providing a Single View into DNS, DHCP, IP Address Management and Network Infrastructure
Infoblox provides the most comprehensive and practical network automation solutions today. Our Automation Task Board delivers seamless integration and automation between our Trinzic DNS, DHCP, IP address management tools and our NetMRI network automation solutions within a single user interface.
Simplifying Common Changes
The Automation Task Board allows you to complete many of the most common changes quickly and easily from the same Trinzic DDI interface that you use to manage your DNS/DHCP and IP addresses. The intuitive interface handles all of the requirements to request, make and document the changes.
Examples of user-initiated network automation tasks include:
- Port activation — with a single click, enable or disable switch ports
- VLAN re-assignment — move ports from one VLAN to another
- Network provisioning — create a new network, configure the network device automatically and update DHCP configuration
Bare Metal Provisioning
The Bare Metal Provisioning Task greatly reduces the time, manpower and effort needed to deploy each new device. Once the device template is built (with multi-vendor support), a single user can implement new installs from the web-based GUI.
The system automatically detects the new device, and enables the user to push the new configuration to the device remotely without the need to be on site. This automated one-step process minimizes possible human error, eliminates wasted time and greatly reduces the cost of new deployments.
Detecting and Isolating Rogue DHCP
The network automation platform automatically discovers network components quickly and easily. For example, a new DHCP lease request triggers device discovery and DHCP fingerprinting. Users are alerted of the new device, can locate the specific port and take corrective actions such as isolating it or requiring user approval to quarantine the device.
This automatic detection and discovery greatly reduces the risk associated with rogue DHCP servers.
