Currently in 2011, IPv4 addresses are almost exhausted, and there are reports of attacks andvulnerabilities on DNS, one of the core Internet services. As the use of cloud services continuesto increase, the growing importance of Internet-based applications and data distribution is clear.In these conditions, a failure of DNS or DHCP service can directly bring an entire system to ahalt. Furthermore, with the move to IPv6, an assurance of DNS security is a crucial element of astable and safe IT infrastructure for a business.
Infoblox network service appliances provide the functions essential for core network services,including domain name resolution (DNS/DNSSEC), and assignment and management of IPaddresses with IPv6 support (DHCP and IPAM).
