Reliable DHCP Management

Whether you are using ISC DHCP or Windows, deploying and managing a DHCP service comes with its own set of headaches:

  • Initial DHCP setup requires in-depth configuration expertise and detailed knowledge
  • Updating DHCP configurations is time-consuming & error prone
  • The impact of misconfiguration is high – a typo could bring down your network
  • Poor visibility of current IP address usage and historic lease data
  • Difficulties implementing redundancy and maintaining an ‘always on’ DHCP service – particularly during server maintenance and upgrades

For those with complex provisioning requirements, manually administering DHCP creates a heavy workload. A dedicated DHCP appliance can simplify day-to-day administration, improve visibility & control of IP usage and provide a high level of resilience and availability:

 

DHCP-Screenshot-subnetsEasier to deploy and use

  • Automation tools reduce initial and ongoing configuration overhead – it takes hours to manually setup dynamic DNS and 2 minutes with a DDI tool
  • A good user interface directs users to perform data editing in clear, logical steps making administration intuitive

 

DHCP-Screenshots-lease-statisticsClear, accurate visibility of your IP address allocation enabling you to implement a plan that caters for devices leaving and joining the network effectively

  • DDI solutions like DNSBOX give you aggregated visibility of distributed DHCP servers from a centralised interface

 

 

DHCP-Screenshot-failoverEnsuring maximum availability of this critical network service

  • Simplified configuration of synchronised failover servers
  • Validation tools can eliminate configuration errors
  • Some appliance solutions like DNSBOX feature minimal downtime upgrade mechanisms
