IPAM For Microsoft DNS and DHCP serversSimple, Secure And Unified Management
Overcome Scalability Limits and Time Consuming Manual Tasks
Modern network infrastructures require complete control of core network services and IP plan foundations. While Microsoft’s IPAM brings some basic capacity for IP Address Management, it requires a dedicated server and is unsuitable for today’s open architectures. Missing APIs removes capability for automation & external actions, lack of a true repository causes IP address conflicts, and multiple DNS/DHCP modification points delays IPAM synchronization. In addition, companies face difficulties when trying to scale and to deploy state-of-the-art high availability.
EfficientIP’s IPAM solution for Microsoft delivers complementary technology to leverage your Microsoft investment, bringing advanced features and easy integration to orchestrators and the network ecosystem. Central Management of DNS & DHCP ensures synchronization, while SmartArchitecture functionality and open APIs help accelerate deployment. Rich reporting and alerting are included, and adding NetChange features allows verification of what devices are on your network. The solution is capable of handling millions of IP addresses and thousands of appliances.
IPAM Best Practices
IP addresses and DNS-DHCP services now spread across platforms so have become complex to control. Understand how to improve manageability, flexibility and security of your network’s IP addressing environment
Unify Management Using Single Pane of Glass
SOLIDserver IPAM integrates seamlessly with Microsoft DNS and DHCP servers offering comprehensive visibility and enabling unified, automated and policy-driven management for higher security, reliability and scalability of your network infrastructure. Having redundancy on DNS/DHCP services & clustering for IPAM & management included, the solution is extremely cost-effective.
Optimize Microsoft Environments With Agentless Integration
SOLIDserver IPAM for Microsoft is an agentless solution that requires no additional software to be installed on Microsoft DNS and DHCP servers. EfficientIP’s solution can remotely configure and monitor all DNS and DHCP records and secure protocols used by Microsoft DNS-DHCP services. These protocols, based on strong authentication, integrate the components of the Active Directory architecture and Name Controllers.
Boost Efficiency by Automating Tasks & Processes
Based on an intuitive and efficient web interface, SOLIDserver DDI appliance streamlines resource qualifications and consumption, while maintaining full control of data consistency across the complete IP addressing plans, VLAN organizations and DNS-DHCP architectures. SOLIDserver’s high level of automation capacity increases process administration efficiencies, allowing simplified delegation of administrative tasks.
Strengthen Disaster Recovery for Microsoft DNS & DHCP
SOLIDserver enables simple, fast and secure disaster recovery processes. It stores all required information for Microsoft DNS and DHCP services recovery in its embedded database.
In the event of a Microsoft DHCP server unavailability, SOLIDserver pushes the exact configuration of the old server onto a newly installed server. Risks of conflicting IP address allocation are eliminated, and coherence of the configuration and all parameters is guaranteed.
Simplify Deployment and Administration with SmartArchitectures
SmartArchitecture is a new approach to IPAM and DNS-DHCP services management designed to drastically simplify deployment and administration of your network services.
SmartArchitecture is a library of state-of-the-art templates of DNS-DHCP architectures, applied on a group of Microsoft® servers to automatically deploy and manage the architecture as a single entity from the centralized management appliance.
SOLIDserver™ SmartArchitecture is a breakthrough in Microsoft® network services management efficiency, bringing unmatched levels of reliability, scalability and flexibility.
Flexible APIs & Actionable Metadata for Smart Network Orchestration
SOLIDserver centralized and dynamic repository provides a single source of truth of IP resources. Information can be easily consolidated from multiple sources in order to provide actionable metadata for uses such as auditing, policy compliance, security and billing. Associated with Open APIs, it provides easy integration within the IT ecosystem and orchestration processes for end-to-end automation and control.
