SD-WAN: Why DDI is Key for Efficient Management

As published in a recent article in SDxCentral based on research from MEF, both the SD-WAN and SASE markets show strong revenue and activity, but they both face challenges impacting market efficiencies and growth. Let’s review the related challenges presented in the article and see how a solid DDI Solution can help mitigate these challenges and ease multi-vendor SD-WAN and integration of Security options. Challenges with SD-WAN for Service Providers and Enterprises Across the globe, 36 Service Provider experts were surveyed and the results...

DDI for Telco: Improving Business Continuity, Operational Efficiency and Scalability

For Telecom operators and Internet Service Providers, IP networks are becoming increasingly complex to manage and evolve. Multi cloud, IoT, 5G and other digital transformation projects have introduced “anything-as-a-software”, SD-WAN, NFV and SDN architectures and opened up new usages requiring ultra-low latency. DNS, DHCP and IPAM (known collectively as DDI) are critical technologies for IP networks, and together with automation are mandatory for simplifying management via zero-touch operations, while ensuring service availability and enhancing user experience. EfficientIP’s all-in-one solution integrates...

SD-WAN: How DDI Simplifies Deployment and Operations

SD-WAN was born as Enterprises needed cheaper bandwidth and more nimble ways of deploying and operating WAN networks especially with the requirements of Digital Transformation. Although SD-WAN delivers on its promises, most solutions on the market do not fulfill all the services that were rendered by traditional MPLS services, like for instance IP Address Management (IPAM). While providing some subsets of its features, SD-WAN solutions lack Integrated DDI (DNS-DHCP-IPAM) as a whole, especially DNS services. And while SD-WAN is protocol...

DDI for Multicloud: Improving Opex, UX and App Deployment

When it comes to handling of new applications and workloads for modern digital infrastructures, multicloud is an unquestionable reality. However, the real value of cloud is being held back by siloed data and manual processes which are both error-prone and time-consuming. Success of hybrid multicloud projects is very much reliant on resiliency, accessibility, security and performance of cloud infrastructures and services. For this, integrating the resources deployed in clouds with a DDI (DNS-DHCP-IPAM) solution is critical, as it brings the...

Why Using DoH is Questionable

DoH (DNS over HTTPS) is an interesting solution for securing the transport of DNS traffic up to the first resolver. But is it required? What are the drawbacks? Do we really need it? Can we trust its usage and the DoH providers currently available? After a few months of intensive usage, some are pushing the message that in the context of an organization DoH is an important subject for I&O teams and more generally for the CISO & CIO to...

Accelerating Transition to the New Normal: Top 5 Predictions for 2021

After the challenging events in 2020, the effects of the Covid pandemic will continue throughout next year, ensuring remote working & remote customers will remain in the limelight. In order to function, businesses will have no choice but to transform, both from organizational and societal viewpoints. The result will be rapid acceleration of digital transformation projects, covering key initiatives like edge computing, multi-cloud, zero-trust security, autonomous networks and infrastructure-as-code. So as organizations continue their transition to the “new normal”, here...

DNS GSLB for Disaster Recovery

While application data controllers (or load balancers) are capable of distributing application traffic towards servers within the data center, a global server load balancing (GSLB) solution enhances this to cover multi-data center strategies. GSLB can also prove valuable for disaster recovery scenarios based on activating dedicated IT resources in a specific spare data center. DNS combined with GSLB offers an easy and efficient way to simplify the required network operations. EfficientIP application repository eases the preparation phase of the IT...

Enhancing SD-WAN Efficiency with Edge DNS GSLB for Improved UX

For organizations to survive in today’s highly competitive digital world, it’s vital that their businesses run smoothly. Users and customers need to be able to access their important work applications and services, at all times and from anywhere. Unfortunately, network complexity is increasing the likelihood of apps becoming unreachable due to scenarios such as WAN failure. SD-WAN can assist to some extent, but is helpless when any network component on the routing path goes down. This is where adding DNS...

How Edge DNS GSLB complements LB/ADC

Edge DNS GSLB (Global Server Load Balancing) is a great solution for enabling global application traffic routing and is therefore very complementary to all ADC load-balancing solutions installed directly in datacenters for improving performance and redundancy. This blog article focuses especially on the combined benefits of using both technologies to provide more value to the users and help ease the work of I&O teams. The role of a load balancer (LB) or application delivery controller (ADC) is mainly to distribute...

DNS GSLB & Service Mesh for Continuous Delivery

For users to access their applications, DNS resolution to determine the destination and IP routing to find the path are mandatory. The application modules and services should be exposed on the servers or facilitator equipment such as a load-balancer. For static installation of applications onto servers, DNS configuration and load-balancing are quite easy, but in modern software architecture based on decoupling and microservices, it is more dynamic and therefore far more complex. This is where service mesh and Edge DNS...
