With ever-growing networks and greater need for high availability, Network Managers are finding they need a better DHCP service than those available on basic routers, Windows Servers or ISC’s DHCP:
|Priority 1 – Failover
Either clunky and imperfect or simply not an option with the tools available. But failover is now a necessity for ensuring reliable, highly available service.
|Priority 2 – Professional Grade
You cannot waste time working around a basic solution’s limitations. Common tasks should be fast and complex tasks straightforward.
|Priority 3 – On-site
With Windows Server moving to the cloud, network admins don’t want DHCP off-site at the mercy of their internet connection.
|Priority 4 – DHCP Database
To avoid frequent restart and support Active-Active failover, you need a solution built on a relational database.
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.
User feedback has always rated the DNSBOX DHCP solution highly. With increasing need for stand-alone DHCP, in 2021 we decided to re-build it from the ground up, to build indisputably the world’s best DHCP server. Informed by expert customer insight every step of the way, that’s what we’ve done.
