Global Leader in Plastics Simplifies Networking for Branch Locations with Infoblox’s Cloud-Based Networking Solution
DNS Implementation Decisions: On Premises or in the Cloud?
After the company became independent, it had to coordinate over 30 international offices and manufacturing facilities. Each location required scalable DNS and DHCP services. With most of these locations dedicated to manufacturing, survivable DDI was essential for production continuity. Additionally, any new DDI implementation would need to work in conjunction with SD-WAN connectivity.
Accommodating a Cloud-First Philosophy
Company decision makers considered a datacenter-centric solution using Trinzic 815s devices in remote sites using Infoblox Grid for redundancy. But while appliances are well regarded in IT circles for offering superior reliability, manageability, security and scalability, the company’s team had embraced a cloud-first IT strategy as a core organizing principle. In studying the various DDI options available in the marketplace, the team recognized that the recently launched BloxOne DDI cloud offering was likely to be a natural fit.
“Managing DDI on premises is a proven, reliable best practice, but it does require on-site administration,” said the team’s infrastructure lead. “With our global footprint, that would require a considerable workload for my team. One of the main advantages BloxOne offered was that we could centrally manage all our DDI instances remotely from the cloud via a single pane of glass. Looking at the competing solutions available, we realized BloxOne DDI would deliver the economic value, functionality and manageability to make it the ideal solution for our needs.”
