We are excited to launch our new technical documents site.
At Infoblox, our products are evolving. Our flagship product, NIOS software, for example, has over a decade of evolution and feature growth associated with it. With each step in that evolution, our documentation team has generated hundreds of pages of detailed reference material, examples, diagrams, and tables. That documentation is an invaluable reference for both first-time users as well as experienced administrators. Like our products, it too is evolving, benefitting from the feedback of our customers and partners to become more useful with each iteration.
However, our NIOS administration guide is over 2000 pages in length today, and still growing. While the manual itself is digital, and therefore benefits from things such as “search” and hyperlinks, the PDF format has become somewhat dated in our instant-search-result world. We realize that there are better tools available today to guide our customers and answer their questions about our products.
Therefore, we have created docs.infoblox.com, an online tool containing all of our company product documentation at a single site. This new site will be constantly updated and comprehensive. It will eliminate the need to navigate through the “Downloads” section of our company website, searching for the appropriate product and the corresponding documentation. There is now a single point of reference.
The site will also allow our customers to provide feedback on things they find helpful, and things they didon’t. We greatly value the suggestions of real-world users of our products, so it will provide a mechanism for instant feedback to our documentation team. Since it is cloud-based, docs.infoblox.com can be updated quickly and those updates will reach the vast majority of customers.
We will, of course, continue to provide links to existing documentation, and any part of docs.infoblox.com may be exported as a PDF file for offline reference. However, we strongly feel that our customers will be best-served by the dynamic, cloud-based documentation that can be found at docs.infoblox.com.
So please, check it out and let us know what you think!
