Infoblox IB 250A NETWORK SERVICES ONE WITH GRID Product Details
The NS1 with Grid package also includes the Grid upgrade which provides patented Infoblox technology for linking distributed appliances into a unified Infoblox Grid. The embedded databases in all Infoblox appliances within an Infoblox Grid are intelligently interconnected so that they share a common, real-time view of host names, IP leases, and other network services data. The Grid uses secure communication among appliances and also uses sophisticated database technology to maintain data integrity. This ensures that all appliances in the Grid have the right data and that the Grid continues to deliver services without data loss or corruption in the face of a wide range of device or WAN failures. Infoblox Grid technology also supports intelligent data replication to minimize the use of bandwidth in the Grid and to enable "rightsized" appliances to be deployed at each location.The flexible Infoblox Grid Manager user interface provides the visibility and control needed to manage all core network services in dynamic IP networks. The Grid Manager consolidates the management of all appliances, services, and data - and provides summary and drill-down views with a simple click. Granular, role-based management capabilities enable administrators to delegate specific networks, ranges, hosts, and devices to junior or departmental personnel. The Infoblox Grid Manager makes it easy to cope with fast-changing networks, and because all data reside in the Infoblox appliance database, the status of devices and services within the Grid Manager always reflects the actual, real-time state of the network.
