Kwansei Gakuin University Selects Infoblox for DNS/DHCP Services
TOKYO and SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - September 17, 2007) - Infoblox Inc. today announced
that Kwansei Gakuin University has selected and deployed Infoblox core
network services appliances to deliver internal and external domain name
resolution (DNS) and IP address assignment (DHCP) services.
Advantages of using Infoblox include central management, reliability and
easy maintenance for these critical core network services. Previously,
Kwansei Gakuin University relied on Unix-based systems for DNS and Windows
servers for DHCP at its Nishinomiya Uegahara, Kobe Sanda and Osaka Umeda
campuses. They had to maintain all of the servers individually, when
software updates and patches were released. These efforts were very
complex and time consuming for their administrators. Additionally,
reliability limitations often resulted in downtime.
To address these issues, Kwansei Gakuin University selected and deployed 10
Infoblox appliances that have built-in High Availability (HA) features for
DNS and DHCP service resiliency. Kwansei linked the Infoblox appliances
into a grid across its campuses so they can be managed and upgraded
centrally. One-button upgrades across the grid help ease the
administrative burden on the IT staff.
Further, to improve reliability and increase security of DNS systems,
Kwansei followed Infoblox's suggested DNS best practices, using several
appliances as forwarders, hidden primary and secondary systems. This
deployment provides protection of DNS data and eliminates Denial of service
Mr. Nagai of Kwansei Gakuin University commented: "When we deployed the
Infoblox appliances, Infoblox and its partner provided excellent DNS/DHCP
support services. In addition, the Infoblox grid technology has delivered
essential central management capabilities to help ease the administrative
burden on our team."
At the Nishinomiya Uegahara Campus, there are two Infoblox-1550 appliances
in an HA pair as the Grid Master; two Infoblox-550 appliances as external
DNS servers; two Infoblox-550 appliances in an HA pair as forwarders and
two Infoblox-1050 appliances for internal DNS/DHCP. At the Kobe Sanda
Campus, there are two Infoblox-1050 appliances for internal DNS/DHCP. All
ten units are linked together in an Infoblox grid, whereby they can be
centrally managed as a single entity.
