Infoblox Offers Scalable Network Control for Private Clouds

A new network control solution from Infoblox is aimed at allowing enterprises to control their private cloud networks at every stage of their development, from pilot program to the deployment of multiple data centers featuring more than one vendor. The new platform, called Infoblox Cloud Network Automation, aims to completely automate the management of core network services.
