The Challenge
The U.S. manufacturer of engineered materials, optoelectronic components, and semiconductors was focused on growth through mergers and acquisitions (M&As). In 2019–2020, it acquired a global electronics firm and needed immediate connectivity and visibility into the acquired firm’s geo-distributed operations. The company had a highly compressed timeline, with only days to integrate the firm’s DDI operations, while deferring a full network migration to a future date. The company was actively engaged in acquiring and merging strategically aligned companies as a key global growth strategy. The company needed to rapidly integrate its new operations, which included significant remote locations in Asia. The company turned to Infoblox to quickly design a highly secure, available, and reliable solution that could deliver full visibility into new sites. It needed dynamic scalability to accommodate its growing operations and the ability to unify a disparate, geo-diverse infrastructure.
The Customer

Global Semiconductor Company

About The Customer
The customer is a U.S. manufacturer of engineered materials, optoelectronic components, and semiconductors. Founded in the early 1970s, the company has a 50-year record of innovation in researching and producing application-specific materials, integrated components, and advanced software for aerospace, defense, automotive, communication, consumer electronics, industrial, life sciences, and semiconductor markets. The company employs over 24,000 workers in 18 countries and 73 global locations, including manufacturing, research and development, sales, service, and distribution facilities in the United States and worldwide. The company is focused on growth through mergers and acquisitions (M&As), and in 2019–2020, it acquired a global electronics firm.
The Solution
The company worked with Infoblox to design a cloud-managed BloxOne DDI solution that allows immediate spin-up of virtual machines from the Infoblox CSP. The process is fast and efficient—access the CSP, download the VM, provision the on-premises host and it’s operational. The BloxOne DDI solution saves money, offers instant visibility and avoids the time and expense of sending engineers to deploy solutions at newly acquired sites. The new architecture includes two mini-hub sites in Europe, two in APAC, two in China and four in the United States to provide high-performing, local access DDI for distributed locations. Once the BloxOne DDI solution was delivered, and network merger and transition plans were defined, the company upgraded its NIOS DDI on-premises infrastructure for existing locations using a hybrid, four-tier design to expand visibility, scalability, and performance.
Operational Impact
  • The company used Infoblox’s hybrid architecture with BloxOne DDI and the CSP to quickly provision newly merged sites and deliver instant visibility, faster supply-chain connectivity, and high-performing access at remote sites, with time for a more comprehensive data and infrastructure migration in the future. Not only did the Infoblox solution exceed expectations for challenging timelines, but it also provided modern, efficient, highly available hybrid core network services capabilities. It simplified and centralized network visibility and consistent DDI management and ensured automated DHCP failover for redundancy and resiliency on-premises, in the cloud and to existing and future remote locations. It also established the ideal networking model for the company’s future mergers and acquisitions to empower its technology leadership and boost its standing as leader in the global semiconductor industry.
Quantitative Benefit
  • The company can now spin up its newly acquired and future locations in a matter of days
  • The company gained instant visibility into new sites
  • The company enabled faster supply chain connectivity
