GSS 4400 as DNS server

Hi Folks,

We have a requirement to replace existing DNS servers (BIND on unix) with some DNS appliances.

So, just wanted some inputs on if we can use GSS 4400 series device as full fledged DNS server holding all DNS records for our domains.

Thanks

Re: GSS 4400 as DNS server

Hi, I cannot answer question directly, but consider these as alternatives:

1) DNS appliance (multi-master), works well and has many nice options: http://www.infoblox.com. This is probably more suitable to running DNS than GSS. BTW, I don't/haven't worked for infoblox. I have deployed them in the past and think they work pretty well.

2) Do you really need GSS appliance in your environment? Before purchasing a GSS, consider this write-up discussing GSLB (first link may not work):
