Active Directory and Non-Microsoft DNS: Facts and Fiction

The case for Non-Microsoft DNS

Whether it's the Internet or your directory services based network, DNS is the glue that holds it together. A simple DNS failure can translate into business failure.

If you think Microsoft DNS is a requirement to run Active Directory, then you are not alone. When it comes to choosing DNS for use with Active Directory, most administrators simply pick "what's in the box from Microsoft."

This paper explores why it doesn't have to be that way:

  • Learn technical facts supporting the use of non-Microsoft DNS with Microsoft Active Directory
  • Read customer stories where non-Microsoft DNS is used to increase security, visibility, efficiency and reduce TCO
  • Recognize common misconceptions related to using "Microsoft only" DNS Active Directory and Non-Microsoft DNS: Facts and Fiction

Get your free copy of this white paper to learn the best solution for both your external and internal DNS, and why non-Microsoft DNS might be the answer.

IP ADDRESS TOOL

Infoblox IPAM Free Trial

Automate and simplify how you manage IPaddresses at scale.

The complexity of the network is growing beyond the reach of traditional IP address tools. The need for accurate and dynamic IP address management (IPAM) is becoming even more crucial. Today's need for IPAM has gone beyond IP address tracking and allocation to centrally maintain a real-time view of additions, moves, and changes.


Infoblox Enterprise DDI combines three critical core network services—DNS, DHCP and IP address management—into a single scalable platform that includes advanced security, reliability, and unmatched operational efficiencies.
