VMware Cloud Adapter
For VMware cloud and virtualization deployments, a lack of network service automation often causes delays, inconsistency, and security risks when provisioning and destroying VMs. Most organizations rely on manual processes and multiple handoffs between the server or cloud and the network team for DNS provisioning and IP address assignment.
Infoblox DDI for Cloud and Virtualization provides core network service automation to shorten the time to provision VMs while maintaining consistent network policies across the enterprise. The Infoblox VMware Cloud Adapter integrates seamlessly with vRealize Orchestrator (vRO) and vRealize Automation (vRA) as well as vCenter Orchestrator (vCO), vCloud Director (vCD), and vCloud Automation Center (vCAC). If you are not leveraging VMware orchestration yet, the rich APIs allow you to customize tasks that integrate with your workflows.

Instead of waiting for IP addresses to be assigned and DNS records to be provisioned for newly created VMs, Infoblox automates the processes for core network services. Without manual processes and multiple trouble tickets, provisioning times are often shortened from hours or days to minutes. In addition, the Infoblox VMware Adapter also cleans up IP addresses and DNS records when VMs are destroyed.
Attempting to keep track of virtual machines is a major challenge for most IT teams. Infoblox eliminates the challenge of tracking VMs across clusters by providing automatic discovery and visibility. This makes it easy to bring virtual assets under common DNS and IP address management. Detailed auditing for VM resources simplifies compliance and reporting requirements.
Too often, over-burdened networking staff is tasked with repetitive tasks such as manually assigning DNS records or attempting to track IP addresses in out-of-date spreadsheets or databases. The Infoblox-VMware integration eliminates unnecessary processes through automation, which increases accuracy, leads to lower operational costs, enables rapid VM deployment, and allows staff to focus on business-impacting initiatives instead of repetitive tasks.
Most organizations have a combination of traditional physical network infrastructure and virtualized/cloud infrastructure. The Infoblox DDI solution provides integrated views of DNS, DHCP, and IP address management across these different platforms to ensure network consistency and improve troubleshooting times.
