Automated and intelligent DNS traffic control
In an on-demand world, even minor delays in response times for your applications can lead to unacceptable losses in productivity, customer satisfaction, and sales. Traffic inadvertently routed to failed servers often gets lost without notification, entering so-called network “black-holes.” If a data centre fails, traffic needs to be routed to the next available data centre for disaster recovery and service continuity. A Global Server Load-Balancing (GSLB) appliance can address most of these problems. However, most GLSB appliances are standalone solutions and are deployed and managed separately from your DNS-related systems. This approach significantly increases capital and operational costs.
With Infoblox DNS traffic control, you can eliminate costly delays in application response times throughout your network. With Infoblox DNS traffic control, you can uniquely combine advanced load balancing functionality with DNS management for a single, unified solution.
Accelerate application response times
Elevate customer experiences by ensuring timely application responses whether within your corporate network or over the Internet. With Infoblox DNS Traffic Control, your application traffic is intelligently directed to the ideal server in every instance based on multiple parameters, such as client and server proximity and server availability. Improve the responsiveness and performance of all applications, including video, by optimising traffic distribution across your network. For external traffic, Infoblox DNS Traffic Control directs your traffic to the optimal data centre based on location, geography, and other parameters to significantly improve response times.
Automate disaster recovery and business continuity
Ensure that people can connect to your applications and Web sites without delay in any circumstance. Our solution continuously monitors your network to detect availability issues with servers and data centres. In the event of a disaster or other malfunction, external Internet traffic or internal application traffic routes automatically to optimal alternate sites or servers, based on analytical performance insights. Your traffic never slips into black holes. You also get the visibility and predictive analytics you need to better manage server response times, availability, and capacity.
Move smarter with unified management
Simplify administration and slash expenses by managing global server load balancing and DNS using one unified solution—without the need for a separate appliance. With Infoblox, you can control load balancing through the same centralised management console employed for all configurations related to DNS, IPAM, and DHCP. Handle it all with one platform and maximise your return on investment.
