We use Infoblox in multiple capabilities i.e. IPAM, DHCP and DNS resolver. If you are an organization that consists of more than one domain and host applications and websites then Infoblox is needed for DNS. When getting DNS module it makes so no sense to leave out IPAM as they both go hand in hand. It literally is a jack of all trades.
  • IP Management
  • DNS Domains
  • DNS Lookup
  • Support
  • UI/UX
  • Reports
It's hard to imagine a scenario where Infoblox is not needed or not well suited. It is on-prem so it will meet all the local data regulations. It come with both IP and DNS features hence it will replace two solutions at the same time.
  • DNS Resolved
  • IP Management
  • DHCP
  • Easy IP Reservation
  • DNS Local and Global Domains
  • Quick Subnet Creation
Cisco Umbrella only does DNS and not IP Management. Moreover, it's DNS is cloud based and requires a local dns resolver. So it makes no sense in having only Cisco Umbrella without infoblox.

We are using Infoblox DDI internal and external grid and internal grid. They help us with our DNS, DHCP, and IPAM infrastructure.
  • Infoblox DDI helps us with our DNS requests for internal and external networks
  • It helps us do IPAM functionality
  • It helps us with serving DHCP to the network sites and datacenters
  • The Infoblox DDI grid VMs require too much space, Processor, and memory, It needs to be skimmed a bit.
  • The OS used is NIOS and has very limited operations we can do on it. It adds a limitation to being scanned for vulnerabilities.
  • The support and migration require too much work and downtime.
We have been using Infoblox DDI for 10+ years at Pitney Bowes. The experience has improved gradually. As far as DNS and DHCP go, they are amongst the top ones offering this service. The support is great and downtime is minimal. The IPAM is always scanning the network to update the IP database. The caching servers reduce the lookups towards the internet. All in all, this is a must-have in every data center.
  • Internal DNS services, Internet name serves to cache.
  • IPAM management helps us assign new IP addresses and an overview of what is used.
  • DHCP helps with assigning IP addresses to networks and systems via DHCP
  • This is a crown piece of infrastructure for us. Downtime on this would cause a network down for us. Fortunately, this has been working well for us till now.
  • The support is also very good, Patching does require some downtime and reboots though
Infoblox DDI supports services across hybrid platforms and the capability to switch from appliances to VMs has added to the mobility of the applications. Setting up two grids(Internal and external) helps manage and segment the network in scopes of DNS and DHCP and apply firewall security policies over our external caching grid members.

We use Infoblox DDI for all of our internal DHCP and IPAM. We also use it as a TFTP server for our IP phones. We also use it as a DNS server for certain zones in our environment.
  • Excellent IPAM server
  • Resilient server that stays online
  • Native logging capabilities could be better
  • User interface is a little laggy
Infoblox DDI is an excellent alternative for Microsoft DHCP. It is a much more robust solution. It can also do DNS for your entire environment. However, if you are an AD environment, you will still need Microsoft DNS servers. The IPAM functionality is excellent for keeping track of your IP addresses.
  • Spend less time managing IP addresses
  • Upgrades are quick and simple.
We previously used Microsoft DHCP. Infoblox DDI is head and shoulders better than Microsoft for DHCP and IPAM. Its is much more robust, easy to use, and reliable. The added features of DNS and TFTP are a bonus for what we are doing. It can easily be expanded for multiple locations with its grid architecture.
Support has always been responsive and knowledgeable.

We are using Infoblox to manage the IP space for our department. However, the corporation uses Infoblox across the organization for all IP management. Infoblox provides a sophisticated method to manage your IP assets, manage DNS, and keep track of the DHCP environment. We also take advantage of using Infoblox as a distribution system for network boot systems.
  • DNS management.
  • Integration with Active Directory, and a viable replacement for MS IP address management.
  • Good for visually representing the DHCP lease space.
  • Reporting is an add-on feature, which requires another system. The basics are free.
  • Network systems management and reporting is another add-on. However, this is significantly expensive.
  • The pricing structure is somewhat ridiculous. It's the least expensive system for a duel site. It has 10s of thousands (for a full feature IP tool), but in our case is crazy expensive.
For an Infrastructure tool, it is a high quality and well thought out solution to managing IP addresses. This tool significantly lowers administrators' time to a minimum in supporting core tools.
This is a tool that is well suited for complex large infrastructures, and is not intended for small enterprises based on their pricing structure.
  • It has lowered the administrative burden on the network team.
  • It has allowed us to provide IP address reports and given us another source for asset management validation.
  • It reduces risk by centrally managing IP networks.
We have mostly used Microsoft and QIP (several years ago), and of course BIND. QIP is the most comparable tool, and, while good, Infoblox is a much better product. Microsoft DNS/DHCP server is basic, and it is free. It works, but forget truly using it as a management tool. Also, Microsoft does not have any redundancy in DHCP allocation, meaning if there are multiple servers or multiple IP address zones, Infoblox creates one and, during upgrades and failovers, the downtime is mere seconds.

Generally, the support is very good. For comparison, for networking people the company that begins with a "C" and has 5 letters has some of the best support, and Infoblox support is comparable. I had a very complex tier 3 issue, where I was working with their SME on the issue for several weeks before we were able to resolve it. In this particular issue, we had to make a change and let it work for several days before we could determine if we were getting the desired outcome. Infoblox worked with me throughout the whole process.
It's generally easy to navigate through all of the menus. It's also very powerful in that there are many options available for configuration, allowing one to take advantage of IP address management tools. This tool is definitely a leader in the space, and provided you have the budget, is a very good investment. The team that uses it will appreciate the tool.

Infoblox is used in our corporation for IPAM data management. We also use it for DHCP on some occasions, but primarily run Microsoft DHCP. It is being used by the entire IT department to manage our network scopes and is very capable in addressing the problem of having all that type of information documented in one easy to reach place.
  • It creates and manages DHCP scopes very well.
  • It identifies scope usage at a glance very well.
  • It's very reliable and requires almost no maintenance to keep up and running.
  • The interface is a little dated.
  • Some data entry can be more difficult than it has to be.
  • Installation could be a bit more streamlined than it currently is.
Infoblox is well suited for any environment bigger than a small business. Managing network scopes and DHCP is an integral part of running a business and Infoblox IPAM does that quite well. We've never really had an issue with reliability or performance of Infoblox, so I'd recommend this product to any medium to large business looking for a way to manage their network information in one place.
  • Sparing resources for other things, suc as managing IPAM is now pretty easy.
Between Solarwinds IPAM and Infoblox, I'd still choose Infoblox even if Solarwinds is prettier to look at. Infoblox does a fantastic job at managing IP space and really doesn't have much competition in this space. Ease of use, being able to queue changes and having all this done via a web interface that just works is very convenient.
