"We didn't really have much DNS experience, and this drove us to using an appliance-based solution..."
Jonathan Guthrie, Networks Manager, CMPi - United Business Media, UK
"With CompactFlash card storage, the potential for device failure was very low, ensuring a low total cost of ownership"
Mike Bird, IT Director, DHL, UK
"DNSBOX can be managed by non-professional technicians. Just teach them a few quick steps then off they go"
Naif Orabi, Network Administrator at TAIF Ministry Of Education, Saudi Arabia
"The differences between DNSBOX and other solutions I have tested are like night and day."
Chief Network Architect, Leading Hollywood Studio, USA
"The daily revenue cost of our system going down could be very high and we realised that the cost of a new and outsourced DNS solution made sense."

Create a Single, Synchronised System

A key advantage of DDI solutions is the integration of the IP address plan data with the live actual data held in DNS and DHCP servers. Deploying a ‘joined-up’ DDI solution addresses key problems with using separate tools which are only linked, if at all, through manual effort:

  • The cost of “fragmentation” is inefficiency and complexity
  • Inconsistencies are likely between the live data and your plan: someone will set DNS or DHCP values which conflict with the plan for IP address space usage
  • If this task is shared between people in different parts of the organisation, maybe in different parts of the world, it creates additional work
  • You can’t get visibility of your network to allow you to oversee the provisioning of IP addresses, manage address reservation and detect new devices

An integrated DDI solution allows large, complex data to be automatically synchronised between services and viewed in real time from a single interface. This gives you full visibility and control of your core IP services, saving you time and money.

 

Drastically reduce your workload

An integrated DDI solution is much more efficient.

  • A single intelligent software application takes care of both your IP address plan and your live DNS and DHCP data.
  • Instead of 2 or more separate data sets, there is a single consistent data set. The ‘plan’ is always in line with the ‘actuals’. In effect, you see two different views of the same data, depending on what task you are doing.
  • The time spent checking and reconciling actual DNS and DHCP values against a separate planning tool is saved.
  • You can also save time managing all your connected DDI servers within a consistent single software application.

Control your names and numbers

The idea of having an IP address plan in the first place, is to achieve control over your IP address space.

The IP address plan provides a framework for managing your DNS and DHCP. Because these are automatically mapped against the plan, you will achieve more discipline and control in the organisation of your DNS and DHCP.

Control the work

Having a single, shared application – which could be shared by administrators around a whole global organisation – means that the sharing of the workload is much more controlled. Your organisation can design appropriate workflows, defining who does what.

Eliminate configuration errors across DDI services

Because you are now working with a single application and a single dataset, in a more controlled environment, you can expect the level of admin errors to be much reduced.
