"The support we get from ApplianSys is just superb – the advice from ApplianSys has always been honest and straightforward, keeping our business growth at the forefront."

"I like the small physical size of DNSBOX, its flashed based disk architecture, and easy to use admin interface..."
Randy Haynes, Senior Network Engineer, EDS, USA
"DNSBOX’s simple user interface makes it much easier to train entry-level engineers to carry out tasks like creating, updating and editing zone records."
Samson Oduor, Access Kenya, Kenya
"An added bonus of DNSBOX is having a flat text file run daily – so anyone in the lab can search through the database easily and track things. We can also import CSV files into Namesurfer, to populate our IPAM database - we use this daily."
Network Manager, Telecoms Equipment Manufacturer
"DNSBOX has given us exactly what we expected. It follows the natural work flow with minimum effort to operate day-to-day tasks. The integration of DNS and IPAM means saving time, giving us the ability to delegate DNS administration and reduce dependency on skilled employees. With DNSBOX, administration can easily be passed on through business generations without worrying about maintaining lots of specialist local knowledge and the risk of losing it."
Network Manager, Telecoms Equipment Manufacturer

Dedicated DHCP for High Availability and Performance

Some people just want to fix a DHCP headache. They find standard Microsoft or ISC DHCPd implementations unsatisfactory:

  • Ensuring a reliable, highly available service by implementing DHCP failover is either difficult or impossible, depending on which tool you are using
    • This is the #1 issue in enterprises managing networks of PCs, notebooks, and IP phones
  • For others, the key issue is performance, needing to handle large numbers of DHCP leases
    • This is typically the priority for service providers
    • As BYOD schemes and IP phones scale the numbers of devices connecting dynamically, it is increasingly also an issue in other organisations
  • In all environments, the difficulty of deploying and administering DHCP can be a further reason why you are looking for something better

DDI appliances in general help solve DHCP problems. If you are just focused on DHCP and need a high availability or high performance solution, then ones like DNSBOX – which include purpose-built solutions dedicated to DHCP – are ideal.
