Infoblox launches free-to-download OpenStack Adapter
Company introduces ‘first open-source adapter for enterprise-grade OpenStack network control’
Network specialist, Infoblox, today announced its free-to-download OpenStack Adapter, which the company claims delivers "the first open-source connector for bringing enterprise-grade network control to the OpenStack platform".
OpenStack is a free, open-source platform for building public and private clouds. Many organisations are initiating OpenStack deployments for much-touted benefits of cost reduction and broad developer community support without the need for vendor lock-in.
"However, OpenStack lacks robust tools for network automation, monitoring, and management that enterprises demand for their mission-critical environments," Infoblox argues.
Infoblox hopes to make OpenStack "more enterprise-ready" with the OpenStack Adapter, which integrates the Infoblox solution for delivering critical network services such as DNS, DHCP, and IP (DDI) with OpenStack.
"Infoblox is the first enterprise-grade DDI vendor to offer an open-source adapter, giving the OpenStack community the opportunity to evaluate and customise the adapter's underlying code," Infoblox said in a statement.
"Infoblox is delivering a robust network automation solution for enterprises that want to leverage OpenStack to build private and hybrid clouds," said Scott Fulton, executive vice president of products at Infoblox. "We look forward to sharing the adapter with our customers and those in the OpenStack community who want to bring the power of Infoblox to the exciting frontier of open-source cloud platforms."
The Infoblox OpenStack Adapter is available now as a free download at www.infoblox.com/openstack.
