Baptist HealthCare System Inc. of Kentucky Deploys Infoblox Core Network Services Appliances

Five Hospitals Now Using Infoblox to Manage DNS, DHCP and IPAM Services

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - March 15, 2010) -  Infoblox Inc. today announced that Baptist Healthcare System Inc. of Kentucky has selected and deployed Infoblox appliances to deliver highly reliable and manageable domain name system (DNS), IP address assignment (DHCP) and IP address management (IPAM) services. Baptist is one of the largest not-for-profit-healthcare systems in Kentucky with five hospitals in Louisville, Lexington, Paducah, Corbin and La Grange.

Mark Flynn, Lead Network Engineer, Baptist Healthcare System Inc., commented, "Healthcare IT is evolving and becoming more real-time. In healthcare, we cannot afford down-time with our network. With our old systems, we frequently experienced server and DNS/DHCP service failures requiring failover. And, unfortunately, for many years we were vulnerable to DNS-related issues because we were not running the latest release of BIND." 

Flynn added, "Now, using Infoblox appliances in high availability pairs, and taking advantage of the company's Grid technology, we have an added layer of redundancy in our datacenter. We love the 'one-button' upgrades Infoblox provides and above all, with Infoblox, we simply no longer have to worry about reliability issues or security vulnerabilities crippling our network."

Baptist purchased 12 appliances total: two Infoblox-550 appliances for each hospital and two Infoblox-1050s for their main datacenter, serving as Grid masters. All are linked together and managed as a unified system using Infoblox Grid technology.
