SOLIDServer™ DDISOLIDServer™ DNS, DHCP & IP Address Management Appliances
Strengthen Your Network Foundations To Support Your Business Imperatives
The SOLIDserver™ suite of appliances is designed to deliver highly scalable, secure and robust virtual and hardware appliances for critical IPAM-DNS-DHCP-NTP-TFTP services. It provides vital benefits for the agility, reliability, and security of your network infrastructure.
SOLIDserver is the cornerstone of DNS-DHCP-IPAM (DDI) projects for datacenter, internet DNS, LAN infrastructures, cloud computing, and any IT organization dealing with the challenges of a dynamic infrastructure.
EfficientIP DDI appliances strengthen your network foundations to support your business imperatives to improve business continuity and decrease operating costs with smart automation. Our 2017 ROI Study indicates that automating key processes with DDI can save organizations $254K in labor and hardware costs over 3 years.
“Separate legacy methods for managing DNS, DHCP, and IPAM will not suffice for the mission criticality of today’s network. Thus, integrated DDI has transitioned from a “nice-to-have” to a “must-have.

Key Benefits Of An Integrated DDI Solution
An effective DDI solution simplifies and automates the management of the relationship between DNS, DHCP, and IPAM. EfficientIP DDI appliances intelligently manage IPv4 /IPv6 and VLANs with multi-vendor DNS and DHCP services (Microsoft®, ISC Bind DNS and DHCP). The SOLIDserver™ DDI appliance provides global visibility, comprehensive consistency control and unified management across your entire network from a single pane of glass. It offers a unique and more accurate way to access your data, with a transverse view and unlimited search criteria. Its embedded SmartArchitecture™ innovation automates the deployment of state-of-the-art, resilient, robust and secure DNS-DHCP architectures. Its operating system is reliable and highly secure. Through a policy-driven approach, EfficientIP simplifies delegation to non-expert administrators with resource templates, workflows and an easy to use interface. The “one-click” upgrade technology and global patching management allows for lower administration costs.
