Demystifying Private Cloud Networking with SUSE and Infoblox
OpenStack provides a number of great benefits for customers looking to stand up an open and agile cloud environment. SUSE OpenStack Cloud is an enterprise OpenStack distribution that rapidly deploys and easily manages highly available, mixed hypervisor IaaS Clouds. SUSE works with technology partners that provide additional value around performance, provisioning and cost of deploying an OpenStack infrastructure. One of those partners is Infoblox, a global company that helps businesses automate complex network control functions to reduce costs and increase security and uptime.
Today, many network teams still rely on manual IP address and DNS provisioning, leaving them unable to provision cloud services quickly. While they can now spin up multiple virtual machines in minutes, in many cases it still takes hours, days, or even weeks to provision them with an IP address and DNS name.
By automating key network provisioning processes that are currently manual, Infoblox enables private-cloud projects to reach the finish line much sooner and deliver the business flexibility and agility they promise. The Infoblox DDI Adapter for OpenStack brings new levels of automation for core IP networking services such as DNS, DHCP, and IP address management, which OpenStack does not deal with natively.
SUSE and Infoblox sponsored a webinar on March 25, 2015 that highlighted the hidden risks and demystified the network challenges in an OpenStack-powered private cloud environment including:
• Improving scalability, provisioning and managing services
• Eliminating manual processes for provisioning IP address and DNS records
• Enhancing private cloud visibility from pilot to production to scale out
