Dilip Pillaipakam, vice president of service provider products at Infoblox, said: "Service providers are broadly adopting network virtualization, and are looking for Infoblox to deliver the same level of carrier-grade core network services they've come to expect in their traditional networks, so they can move to NFV without skipping a beat."

He added: "Achieving VMware Ready status demonstrates that our DDI platform interoperates seamlessly with the VMware vCloud NFV platform. Our DDI platform delivered on VMware NFV infrastructure will support service providers in delivering a safe, reliable, and fast first-connection impression to their subscribers, while also significantly reducing network operating expenses."

"Through the VMware Ready program, and our testing and validation of solutions from partners such as Infoblox, we are removing interoperability as a barrier to NFV success. Our mutual customers can now move forward with NFV adoption knowing that Infoblox DDI has been rigorously tested to work within VMware environments."
