Mercy Medical Center Standardizes on Infoblox Appliances for DNS/DHCP and Other Core Network Services

SANTA CLARA, CA–( EMWNews – March 31, 2008) – Infoblox Inc., today announced that

Maryland’s Mercy Medical Center, rated one of the top medical facilities in

the United States, has selected and deployed Infoblox appliances to deliver

internal and external domain name resolution (DNS), IP address assignment

and management (DHCP/IPAM), as well as other core network services.

Mercy Medical Center is a full service hospital delivering a comprehensive

range of health services including internal medicine, obstetrics, urology,

pediatrics, cardiology, rehabilitative care and emergency medicine. With

more than 600 physicians and 2600 employees, the Mercy Medical Center

depends on its IT network to effectively serve its patients in these

practices. Core network services like DNS and DHCP are essential to the

daily operation of the Mercy Hospital network and applications like Voice

over IP (VoIP), which requires highly reliable and easily tracked IP

address assignment services.

In fact, a planned VoIP implementation — expected to reach 3,000 handsets

by 2010 — is what prompted the Mercy Medical IT team to evaluate its

previous core network services systems: Microsoft Active Directory servers

in conjunction with Excel spreadsheets to manage IP addresses, which were

too cumbersome to manage, insecure and often unreliable.

After evaluating several competing products, Mercy Medical Center

standardized on Infoblox appliances to deliver core network services for

the hospital’s entire IP network and applications, including its new VoIP

application. The Infoblox core network services infrastructure will

provide the scalable and robust platform to support the hospital’s new

18-story patient care tower expected to open in 2010.

“The Infoblox product helped us stabilize, simplify and strengthen our core

network services infrastructure,” commented Mark Rein, senior director of

Information Technology, Mercy Medical Center. “Now, instead of spinning

cycles managing multiple domain controllers and ad-hoc systems, my team can

focus more on the tough things like the clinical applications themselves.

More importantly, with Infoblox, we rest at night trusting it will not go

down.” Rein concluded: “And, when our brand new hospital is completed in

2010, the core network services infrastructure is already in place for a

seamless transition.”

Infoblox appliances deliver reliable, manageable, scalable, and secure core

network services and are designed for nonstop operation in high-performance

networks. The Mercy Medical Center is using Infoblox appliances running as

high availability pairs dispersed at two data centers in the Baltimore

area. More Infoblox appliances are in a grid serving internal and external

DNS, DHCP and configuration file transfer (TFTP) services.
