DNSBOX a star in Arizona
ApplianSys announced today that the University of Arizona (UA) has bought another DNSBOX solution to ease DNS and DHCP management for its Astronomy department.
Having previously deployed a DNSBOX300 master to handle simple authoritative and recursive DNS services at the remote Mount Graham International Observatory, UA have decided to use another DNSBOX solution for a much larger requirement.
In its Astronomy department, an in-house solution was used for managing DNS and providing DHCP for around 500 devices. However, this was proving to be a difficult, labour-intensive process and UA was concerned about how it would deal with an expected rise in the number of devices on its network.
Knowing it was a solid, reliable solution, UA replaced the existing solution with a DNSBOX300 master and 2 DNSBOX100 slaves.
“DNSBOX has already proven to be a robust and highly reliable solution for UA. Combining the DNSBOX300 master with DNSBOX100 dedicated slave appliances makes it much easier to manage their existing DNS and DHCP requirements, and removes their concern about handling a growing workload as their network expands,” says DNSBOX Sales Manager Magdalena Jovanovic.
