Infoblox vNIOS™ for KVM is a virtual appliance designed for KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) hypervisor and KVM-based OpenStack deployments. The Infoblox vNIOS for KVM enables you to deploy large, robust, manageable, and cost effective Infoblox Grids. For information about Infoblox Grids, refer to the Infoblox NIOS Documentation. Note that the vNIOS for KVM functions as a hardware virtual machine guest on the Linux system.
Infoblox NIOS provides core network services and a framework for integrating all the components of the modular Infoblox solution. NIOS provides integrated, secure, and easy-to-manage DNS (Domain Name System), DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) and IPAM (IP address management) services. In addition to DNS, DHCP, and IPAM, NIOS also provides TFTP, HTTP, and FTP file transfer services. Infoblox vNIOS for KVM provides most of the features supported by NIOS, with some limitations described in Known Limitations.
You can configure most of the vNIOS appliances as independent or HA (high availability) Grid Masters, Grid Master Candidates, and Grid members (or a reporting member). For supported vNIOS appliance models and their specifications, see vNIOS for KVM Virtual Appliance Models.
