In our digital economy, business critical applications are at the center of how things get done. For external customers, partners and internal users alike, applications must be available, responsive, reliable and meet on-demand performance expectations. Apps drive revenue, productivity, user experience, communication, differentiation and brand perception. This raises the stakes around the costs of critical application failure. It also loads the pressure on network teams as companies try to secure their networks while expanding apps on private, public and hybrid clouds to serve global customers, mobile workers, Internet of Things (IoT), and more across world geographies with 24/7/365 expectations and ever-increasing security threats.
A key technology that meets these challenges is DNS-based Global Server Load Balancing (GSLB). In a new Technology Spotlight, industry analyst IDC outlines key trends and market developments, required GSLB functionalities, top use cases, the advantages of DNS integration, and some very unique and compelling reasons to consider Infoblox DNS Traffic Control. Among these include:
- Application uptime for Internet and Intranet delivered through deep DNS and IPAM integration with configurable extensible attributes.
- Application performance enabled by a breadth of flexible server health checks, streamlined workflows, simpler communication exchanges and configurable balancing methodologies.
- Centralized management via a single admin UI and configuration database for DNS & GSLB, comprehensive visibility on server, pool and Load Balancing Domain Name (LBDN) resource availability.
- Fast, easy, scalable, low-cost CapEx and OpEx deployment through a license key rather than by configuration, maintenance and management of added hardware or virtual appliances.
