Infoblox Inc. today announced that the Tolly Group, the highly respected premier independent test lab for the networking industry, has certified that the Infoblox IPAM solution offers enterprise IT organizations labor savings of more than 70 percent while increasing network reliability and scalability.
- A pay-back period in as little as 3-6 months;
- A return on investment (ROI) of $60,000 – $500,000, depending on company size; and,
- 70% savings in labor with significant reliability and scalability advantages.
The analysis also revealed that enterprises maintaining a DNS and DHCP service infrastructure from Microsoft have longer term risks in addition to rising operational costs. They jeopardize network availability, especially as they migrate to new technologies like virtualization and IPv6 due to increased complexity and probability of human-related errors.
The report states: “The Infoblox IPAM solution can mitigate these risks by reducing and removing human errors related to complex IPv6 addressing and maintenance of virtual machine address pools.”
Kevin Tolly, founder of The Tolly Group, commented: “Our testing shows that the Infoblox IPAM solution offers a significant ROI advantage over status quo solutions, justifying the purchase for enterprise IT teams not just based on labor savings, but also on the ability of the platform to lay a foundation for a more reliable and scalable network. This is especially important as enterprises extend their virtual and cloud applications, manage their IPv4 networks, and prepare for the transition to IPv6, which brings added complexity and risks.”
