IP Address Automation with VMware

Unleashing the Power of VMware Network Virtualization with Automated IP Address Management

Infoblox provides network virtualization solutions that are tightly integrated with VMware. Our integrated virtualization solutions discover virtual machines running on ESX/ESXi hosts, allocate and de-allocate IP addresses to virtual machines in real time, and update the DNS records of virtual machines. Infoblox network virtualization solutions are completely coupled to IPAM and provide a single graphical view of both the physical hosts and virtual machines, for efficient and scalable virtualization deployments.

Infoblox vDiscovery

Using IP addresses, Infoblox vDiscovery automates the process of discovering VMware virtual machines for asset management, monitoring and tracking. vDiscovery improves network efficiency by tracking and correlating relationships between virtual machines and network infrastructure.

Discover virtual machines

Infoblox vDiscovery easily identifies, tracks and graphically depicts all virtual infrastructure devices and their virtual IP addresses, including ESX servers, virtual machines, virtual switches and virtual host adaptors. vDiscovery uses standard VMware APIs to communicate and collect information about the virtual machines, and doesn’t require any connector or additional software to be installed on a VMware ESX/ESXi host.

Trinzic DDI includes vDiscovery as a built-in feature.

Collect detailed information about the virtual machines

vDiscovery provides detailed information about each virtual machine, such as its discovered name, MAC address, VLAN name, VLAN ID, virtual switch, virtual datacenter and much more.

Use Smart Folders to group virtual machines

Group machines by Datacenter, switch-ports or VLAN using Smart Folders within IPAM.

See virtual machines and physical devices in a single view


Once vDiscovery has discovered a virtual machine, the information is automatically populated in IPAM to provide a single graphical view of both the physical and virtual environment, which reduces complexity and makes troubleshooting any potential problems easier.

Infoblox Plug-in for VMware’s vCenter Orchestrator

The Infoblox Plug-in for VMware’s vCenter Orchestrator streamlines the processes of obtaining an IP address in a virtualized environment, turning a manual task that takes days into an automated task that takes seconds.  Developed for and delivered with the VMware vCenter Orchestrator (vCO), the Infoblox Plug-in works in tandem with the VMware vCloud Director (vCD). The vCD provides automated IP addressing and related management capabilities in real time as virtual machines are created and destroyed.

Provision systems in minutes with automatic IP allocation and de-allocation

The Infoblox Plug-in automates the processes of providing an IP address (both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses) to a newly created virtual machine, updating its DNS record and configuring network devices—all in a matter of seconds instead of hours or days. The Plug-in also automates the process of de-allocating an IP address if a virtual machine is deleted.

Synchronize DNS, DHCP and IP address services between VM clusters

As VMs get moved from one network to another, the Infoblox Plug-in for VMware vCO automatically synchronizes the proper DNS entries and IP addresses, providing greater efficiencies in your networks.

Eliminate errors introduced by manual processes

The Infoblox Plug-in for VMware vCO eliminates errors introduced by manual processes for allocating and de-allocating IP addresses and updating DNS records.  This automation also leads to lower operational costs, and enables rapid deployments of virtual machines.
