SIPv4 and IPv6 Address Management
IPAM actively identifies and manages IPv4 and IPv6 addresses and uses active scanning to discover and track subnets and associated address blocks. Finding an available address is as simple as navigating to a target subnet, viewing, and selecting an available IP address. Also, view transient IP addresses to easily identify orphaned IP addresses and reclaim them.
Integrated DHCP and DNS Configuration Management
IPAM works with your multi-vendor DHCP and DNS services—no additional proprietary software or hardware is required for management. You can easily unify and manage your Microsoft, Cisco, and ISC open source DHCP servers as well as your BIND and Microsoft DNS servers. The DHCP and DNS changes you make in IPAM are seamlessly propagated to the respective servers, enabling teams to easily find and configure IP addresses from a single management console.
IP Address Manager can monitor your Infoblox DHCP and DNS resources, allowing you to view subnets, DNS zones, and DHCP scopes in one place. Surface DNS mismatches and IP address conflicts on the main dashboard.
Monitoring and Alerting
IPAM automatically and proactively detects IP address problems that can eventually lead to network disruption. You can continuously monitor and improve IP performance with proactive detection of IP address problems, notification of IP address changes in the network, and access to utilization data on essential metrics for planning. Active monitoring and alerting helps eliminate network downtime due to IP conflicts and non-availability of IP addresses due to full subnets.
