Infoblox is a technology company in California's Silicon Valley. It was founded in 1999 in Chicago, Illinois, by Stuart Bailey, who was at the time a technical lead for the Laboratory for Advanced Computing/National Center for Data Mining at the University of Illinois. Within the general field of IT management tools, the company focuses on software and hardware for managing Internet addresses and identifying devices connected to networks—specifically solutions for Domain Name System (DNS), Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), and IP address management. The company moved to Santa Clara, California, in 2003 to take advantage of the large pool of technical talent there. Bailey is still with the company, acting as chief technology officer.
