Key
capabilities

DHCP enhancements

NIOS 8.4.8 provides faster, more reliable DHCP failover through database replication. It also delivers DHCP in Pure IPv6 DDNS environments for improved flexibility and performance. NIOS 8.6.0 further offers DHCP address conflict notification for faster conflict resolution, and updated DHCP fingerprinting for improved network device visibility and control

Microsoft Windows Server 2019 Support Update

NIOS 8.6.0 continues concurrent support for Microsoft Windows 2019 DNS and DHCP servers for enhanced network visibility, data sync and sharing, team collaboration and control

Network Insight device and credential grouping enhancements

NIOS 8.6.0 simplifies workflows and saves time and money by assigning credentials per device group using Infoblox extensible attributes (EAs), improving visibility and simplifying device management

DTC load balancing advancements

NIOS 8.6.0 equips DTC with new consolidated monitor health settings that enable all members to do health checks and share statuses. It also provides a new LBDN Query Configuration to support full health check updates for greater reliability. Finally, NIOS 8.6.0 offers new source IP hash load balancing to enable persistence during disconnect and reconnect events

Anycast configuration upgrade

NIOS 8.4.8 increases reliability and user experience by allowing configuration of anycast and the DNS start/stop/restart sequence to eliminate potential DNS outages, enhance stability and improve user experience and flexibility

New BIND stats CLI command

NIOS 8.6.0 offers a new CLI command that collects BIND data to improve data collection for troubleshooting and reduce the mean time to recovery

DNS encryption (DoT and DoH) for service providers

In addition to the enterprise DNS over TLS (DoT) and DNS over HTTPS (DoH) capability noted above, NIOS 8.5.2 delivers greater service provider workflow simplification and security through ultra-fast encrypted DNS that runs all CSP DNS standard features (e.g., vDCA, ADP, high-speed query logging and subscriber value-added services) from a single service provider scale DNS

New proxy RPZ to configured MSPs

NIOS 8.5.2 delivers faster service provider processing performance by proxying response policy zones (RPZs) to configured MSPs. Infoblox enables URL filtering and DNS pre-filtering to eliminate extraneous traffic for faster performance

New vDCA proxy policy enforcement

NIOS 8.5.2 increases security by enabling policy enforcement on virtual DNS Cache Acceleration (vDCA) for Dynamic, Portal Content Publishing (PCP), IBM WebSphere Portal Content Publishing (WPCP) and all traffic (Proxy-All)
