About Infoblox (adapted from Infoblox prospectus):
Infoblox is a company providing automated network control and an appliance-based solution that enables dynamic networks and next-generation data centers. Infoblox combines real-time IP address management with the automation of key network control and network change and configuration management processes in purpose-built physical and virtual appliances. Their service is based on proprietary software that is scalable and automates vital network functions, such as IP address management, device configuration, compliance, network discovery, policy implementation, security and monitoring. Their software solution uses a network database to provide "always-on" access to network control data through a scalable, redundant architecture.

Dynamic networks are essential to the performance of data centers and increasingly rely on the Internet Protocol, or IP. Organizations are deploying dynamic networks to enable next-generation data centers that utilize virtualization, cloud computing, software-as-a-service and high-speed networking to cost-effectively support numerous business critical operations. Organizations have upgraded the performance of their networking hardware, such as switches and routers, but generally have not upgraded their network control, which is the infrastructure and software that control the operation of the network. The importance of network control grows as networks increase in scale and complexity because of the rapid growth in the number of devices and software applications requiring network connectivity, the consumerization of Information Technology, or IT, the adoption of next-generation IP protocols and the proliferation of virtualization and cloud computing.
Infoblox answers the needs for companies struggling to keep up with the rapid growth in the number and types of devices that require network connections, the growth of software applications that require requests to IP locations, the need for next-generation data centers that utilize virtualization and cloud computing and the need to deliver and scale services in real-time. Also, the implementation of IP version 6, or IPv6 is a challenge for many, due to the complexity of this protocol and the need for it to coexist with IP version 4, or IPv4.
Infoblox seeks to meet these growing needs in increasingly connected world. This description is adapted from Infoblox prospectus.
