DNSBOX boosts King Saud DDI health
ApplianSys is pleased to announce that the King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences (KSAU-HS) has chosen DNSBOX to improve DNS security and integrate DDI services at its campus headquarters in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
KSAU-HS wanted to replace its Windows DNS with a more secure, more reliable failover solution that would guarantee service uptime for its 8,000 users.
DDI services were fragmented – including a time-consuming, error-prone spreadsheet for IPAM and a DHCP appliance from InfoBlox. So the university’s reseller, Specialty Experts Company (SEITCS), suggested they could integrate everything with an ApplianSys solution: a single integrated system, more reliable and secure, with fully-trained support, available locally.
DNSBOX met KSAU-HS’s need for rock-solid authoritative and recursive DNS, but would also provide full network visibility, as well as easier, simpler management of its core IP services.
Once set up with a Virtual Machine for testing, Head of IT Operations Haitham Daakik was impressed to see DDI services automatically synchronised and viewable in real-time from a single intuitive interface.
“By providing a single DDI solution to replace multiple different systems, DNSBOX makes managing KSAU-HS’s complex IP address spaces much easier, faster, and less error-prone,” says DNSBOX Product Manager Magdalena Jovanovic. “And with an expert Appliansys partner on the ground in Riyadh, Haitham can be confident of getting the support he needs.”
King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences is the first public university in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Middle East region to specialise in health sciences. Accredited by the Ministry of Education, its various graduate programs include academic degrees at King Abdulaziz Medical City, part of the Ministry of National Guard Health Affairs. KSAU-HS has 14 colleges in three university campuses in Riyadh, Jeddah, and Al-Ahsa.
