Modern demands in virtualization, cloud, and the Internet of Things are shifting the network landscape and require advanced solutions to manage critical network services across physical, virtual, and cloud environments.
Recently, I had the opportunity to speak with InfoBlox’s Chief Technology Officer, Alan Conley, about automating core network services – DNS, DHCP, and IP Address Management (DDI) – with Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI). In this video interview, Alan spoke about the common challenges InfoBlox and Cisco customers face in security and automation in their data centers.
Alan eloquently explains how ACI micro segmentation to enhance security for East-West traffic in the data center complements InfoBlox’s secure DNS server that detects and mitigates malware and botnets trying to attack customer networks.
He also shared how a number of InfoBlox customers are looking for the integration of InfoBlox DDI and Cisco ACI to deliver highly secured solutions but also ones that are operationally agile.
I really encourage you to listen to Alan Conley’s enlightening interview.
