Infoblox (News - Alert) Inc is a global provider of real-time DNS, DHCP and IPAM network infrastructure solutions. It recently declared the acquisition of Netcordia, the independent provider of Network Change and Configuration Management (NCCM) solutions. This acquisition, with unrevealed financial conditions, includes complete absorption of Netcordia (News - Alert) employees, assets and products.
The Netcordia acquisition helps Infoblox to extend its expertise in DNS, DHCP and IPAM automation into change and configuration management. It enables the enterprise customers to automate a better share of manual network-related tasks and procedures thereby reducing operating expenses. Additional business and market benefits generated due to this acquisition include combined revenue, global sales, channel and technical support strength; accelerated product development of more feature-rich DDI and NCCM solutions; and increased investment in new products and solutions for enhancing network infrastructure automation and addressing emerging network demands.
'Netcordia's market momentum, customer base, technology and exceptional employees, coupled with Infoblox's team and unique real-time data distribution and management expertise, will be invaluable to positioning Infoblox for continued success as a leading provider of both DDI and NCCM solutions, while investing in development of more advanced network infrastructure automation solutions,' said Robert Thomas, the president and CEO of Infoblox.
"Joining Infoblox is the trusted DDI infrastructure solutions partner for many of the world's largest enterprises," said Don Pyle, the CEO of Netcordia. "This will help to accelerate our momentum in the NCCM market and launch a new era of network infrastructure automation, dramatically increasing the flexibility and availability required to address the demands of new enterprise initiatives and the ever-increasing size and complexity of today's networks.'
Today, network managers are facing compliance demands and the need for real-time changes to the network. The integration and coordination of NCCM and DDI technologies will be crucial to address these issues and to achieve efficient and compliant network operations. This acquisition provides the analysis and discovery solutions that can be useful to address growing enterprise requirements. The solutions automate manual and error-prone network tasks that are essential for maintaining network connectivity.
Infoblox's portfolio will be powered by the acquisition of Netcordia and its award-winning NetMRI flagship product by contributing supreme network infrastructure intelligence and automation capabilities that improve network reliability and predictability, staff productivity, business services uptime, and reduce costs.
