"Enterprise environments are vulnerable as everything goes IP; the explosion of IP-enabled devices, coupled with a transition from IPv4 to IPv6, is going to create IP management chaos. Poorly managed IP networks will lead to increased network downtime or failed network segments. Now more than ever it is important that IT departments take the time to examine their DNS and DHCP systems and ensure that these systems can keep pace as more pressure is placed on IP-based networks."

"The network infrastructure that supports a virtualized or cloud infrastructure needs to be at least as reliable and as dynamic as the new cloud-based, virtualized server infrastructure. If this is not the case, cloud initiatives will flounder on unreliable network architecture and services, limiting extensibility and the benefits that can ultimately be realized by an enterprise."

"Infoblox has better scalability, automation and real-time control versus other solution providers in this space. I thought the 4010 announcement evolves this market in a direction that is consistent with the current IT trends, such as the consumerization of IT."

To address the ever-expanding volume of DNS queries, while boosting reliability and reducing the administrative burden, service providers need a new level of DNS performance and scalability with central management capabilities."
