DNS, DHCP and IPAM designed for AWS

Infoblox DDI for AWS provides the industry-leading platform to ensure agility, consistency, and visibility for AWS workloads—and correlated views with other platforms

Enhance Visibility across AWS and Hybrid Deployments

  • Gain visibility into all cloud environments (tenants, VPCs, Subnets, and VMs) in a single view with vDiscovery + Cloud Network Automation (CNA)
  • Receive a consistent view of AWS and non-AWS network parameters within a single pane of glass when combining AWS with virtualization or cloud deployments

DNS, IPAM Automation and Control of Cloud Resources

  • Reduce the need to spin up general-purpose DNS servers to communicate from on-premises to AWS
  • Integrate the DNS records across multiple platforms within a single platform to improve manageability and consistency
  • Configure tasks to run automatically, tracking all cloud environments and store this data in IPAM
  • Local API survivability and Horizontal Scalability with Cloud Platform Appliances
  • AWS API Proxy feature reduces manual intervention while provisioning / de-provisioning AWS instances

DHCP for On-Premises Clients

  • Provide DHCP service for all on-premises clients
  • Configure as your primary DHCP server or as part of a failover pair with vNIOS DHCP server running on premises
  • Use two vNIOS appliances in AWS for DHCP failover for highly available, fault-tolerant DHCP services

DNS Security designed for AWS

Infoblox BloxOne Threat Defense provides hybrid protective DNS services to secure networks, devices and users from cyberthreats on- and off-premises, including remote locations and home offices

Extend DNS Security to AWS

  • Leverage Infoblox DNS Security and IPAM for AWS records by serving Amazon Route 53 zones through Infoblox DNS
  • Implement Infoblox DNS Security as part of a comprehensive strategy to reduce the risk of DNS-based attacks and exploits
