INTRODUCTION

Infoblox NIOS 8.5 elevates integration and security for critical DNS, DHCP and IP address management services. The newest chapter in the evolution of NIOS, 8.5 lets organizations deploy robust, secure and cost-effective DDI services to networks of any size for the indefinite future.

WHAT’S NEW IN NIOS 8.5

Extended Integration

Extended Integration
NIOS 8.5 adds support for Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor (AHV), complementing existing support for VMware, Hyper-V and OpenStack Platform. NIOS compatibility with the widest array of virtualization platforms answers the question, “How do I deliver enterprise-grade DDI to an evolving private or hybrid cloud environment?”

Meraki SD-WAN Discovery

Meraki SD-WAN Discovery
NIOS 8.5 leverages Infoblox Network Insight to discover Meraki SD-WAN devices on a network. This unifies IPAM visibility, making IP address and network management more comprehensive as organizations adopt SD-WAN for remote and branch office connectivity.

NIOS Grid Connector

NIOS Grid Connector
NIOS Grid Connector makes NIOS/Infoblox Grid™ data visible in the BloxOne™ Cloud Service Portal. A BloxOne administrator can monitor IP and DHCP data from NIOS 8.5 appliances in a single pane of glass. NIOS 8.5 is leading the evolution of enterprise DDI to the cloud.

Meeting Customer Needs for Today and Tomorrow

KEY ADVANTAGES OF NIOS 8.5

Terraform Support

A plug-in that runs on Terraform in VMware and Microsoft Azure environments helps administrators manage DNS and IPAM services. It streamlines and simplifies access administration while improving overall operating efficiency.

Enhancements to DNS Traffic Control

In NIOS 8.5, DNS Traffic Control status is refreshed every 10 seconds, allowing the administrator to see traffic status 12 times faster than previously possible. In addition, DNS Traffic Control can now scale up to 4,000 pools and 4,000 Load-Balanced Domain Names and its persistency has quadrupled to two hours.

Fast Capture of DNS Queries and Responses

DNS queries and responses can be captured at a rate of up to 600,000 per second. Queries can be sent to an external server.

Test a Grid Master Candidate Before Promotion

Before a Grid Master Candidate (GMC) is promoted to Grid Master, a test connection can be scheduled and executed to ensure successful failover.

DNS Forwarding Proxy

DNS Forwarding Proxy is now a NIOS 8.5 service that automatically handles DNS query forwarding.
