Houston-Based Kelsey-Seybold Health Care Deploys Infoblox Core Network Services Appliances

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - October 5, 2009) - Infoblox Inc. today announced that Houston, Texas-based Kelsey-Seybold Clinic 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. Kelsey-Seybold is the largest health care provider in Houston, Texas with 23 offices in three counties, serving more than 400,000 patients each year.

Kelsey-Seybold had several concerns about the health of their previous core network services environment, including: the requirement of many cycles and experts to maintain, upgrade and patch it; poor reliability; potential vulnerability to DDoS attacks; no audit logs to investigate network breeches; and poor scalability. These issues can unexpectedly disrupt network availability and the applications that depend on them, which can compromise patient care.

To address these issues, Kelsey-Seybold evaluated several solutions and chose Infoblox purpose-built, integrated appliance platforms to replace its previous solution that was soon to be end-of-lifed. Within three weeks of purchasing the appliances, Kelsey-Seybold made the official switch to Infoblox. The deployment process was seamless.

"The solution we were using to manage our core network services was in a state of disarray," said Charles Galler, Network Administrator III from Kelsey-Seybold. "After evaluating the Infoblox solution, it was so many miles ahead than any other product on the market, we knew it was the right fit for us. There are so many benefits to using Infoblox DNS appliances that to narrow it down would be difficult."

Since using the Infoblox solution, support calls for DNS issues have virtually disappeared. Infoblox appliances now provide nonstop core network services, eliminate reliance on experts, and improve security. Common upgrade and patching has become streamlined with Infoblox enabling "one-button" upgrades to accommodate new features and easy installation of the latest BIND releases.

Additionally, Infoblox's Grid technology links Infoblox appliances across the datacenters into a unified, distributed system that is resilient to network and equipment failures and provides central management so all core network services and systems can be managed from a single console.
