DHCP

The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is used to dynamically allocate IP addresses and configuration details to hosts from a pool of IP addresses, reducing the need for users or administrators to configure these manually.

DHCP servers are typically configured on routers or standalone servers, and will require centralised management.

IP Performance offer two DHCP Management solutions, which are architected in different ways, and which cover the requirements of organisations large and small.

    The SOLIDserver DDI (DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management) suite is designed to deliver highly scalable, secure and robust virtual and hardware appliances for critical DNS-DHCP-IPAM services. It provides vital benefits for the agility, reliability, and security of a customerā€™s network infrastructure.

    SOLIDserver is the cornerstone of DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management (DDI) projects for datacenter automation, internet DNS, LAN infrastructures, cloud computing, digital transformation and any IT organisation dealing with the challenges of a dynamic and secure infrastructure. DDI helps software defined networking (SDN) become fully integrated to the whole IT ecosystem ā€“ from orchestration of application deployment to IT Service Management (ITSM) process control.

    EfficientIP DDI appliances strengthen an organisationā€™s core network foundations to support the business imperatives to improve business continuity and decrease operating costs with smart automation.

  • BlueCat Networks – Core Network Services

    Most organisations donā€™t take notice of their DDI (DNS, DHCP and IP address management) infrastructure until something goes wrong; whilst it is a key component of any network, it normally just works, having been architected over time using Open Source tools and spreadsheets or a home-grown platform.

    Most organisations donā€™t take notice of their DDI (DNS, DHCP and IP address management) infrastructure until something goes wrong; whilst it is a key component of any network, it normally just works, having been architected over time using Open Source tools and spreadsheets or a home-grown platform. When something does go wrong, it is often down to one person, the original architect or owner of the spreadsheet, to resolve the problem. Commercial DDI solutions could help.
    With Adaptive DNS all of an organisationā€™s critical DDI infrastructure will be united under one intelligent roof, giving them centralised visibility and control of all of their DNS traffic, round the clock.
    Breaking down DDI into its building blocksā€¦..

    DNS

    With BlueCat, customers can enjoy a responsive, reliable network that enables core services and speeds application performance and availability. BlueCatā€™s feature-rich DNS solutions can be deployed across on-premise, virtual and cloud environments.

    DHCP

    With BlueCat, customers can boost security and availability, achieve a more scalable architecture, and get dual-stack support across hybrid IT and multi-cloud infrastructures. BlueCatā€™s DHCP solution also helps an organisation make the most of limited IPv4 space and dual-stacked IPv4 and IPv6 DNS environments.

    IPAM

    BlueCat helps customers to get a single source of truth for relationships between devices, users and IP addresses on the network, using built-in IP modelling tools and network templates to simplify management and unifying an entire IT estate both on-premise and in the cloud.
