Amazon Route 53

Amazon Route 53 is well suited if:
1. You seek to create a simple website fast.
2. The site would be able to host HTML5 content and static content attach a domain name.
3. Have simple and accessible management.
Scenarios where Amazon Route 53 is less appropriate:
1. If a website needs HTTPS.
2. If you need to have extensive logging and tracing on the website.
3. If a website is designed to host dynamic content.

SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM)

SolarWinds IP Address Manager is very useful the bigger and more complex the environment. Smaller organizations will have to consider the cost as it provides little benefit over monitoring maybe 2-3 servers. But I have over 24 DHCP servers with on average 15 subnets each so tracking and monitoring all that was very time-consuming. As a result, it was generally ignored until there was an issue. With SolarWinds IP Address Manager, I was able to set alerts to monitor scope utilization and duplicate IP addresses.

Pros

Amazon Route 53

  • We can purchase our domain through Route 53 and can be hosted for cheaper prices in AWS.
  • There are many number of routing policies you can go ahead with and this will come into picture when the customer satisfaction is required at most, so choose routing policy accordingly.
  • As usual health checks are part of DNS systems, this is also provided at cheaper rates when total process is done in Route 53 service.
  • It can be used as standalone application from AWS

SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM)

  • With IPAM automated address scanning, we can be confident that we are looking at an up-to-date, accurate snapshot of our network.
  • The built-in alerts are a great safety net. We know that even if we aren't paying close attention to our IP address space, IPAM is. If a range is nearly full, IPAM lets us know before it becomes a real problem.
  • IPAM's event logging gives us insight into any and all changes made by our network engineers.

Cons

Amazon Route 53

  • Price, it is not expensive ... but you can find some cheaper and even free DNS solutions.
  • If you use non-AWS infrastructure, Route 53 doesn't have significant advantages on other services.
  • AWS Route 53 does not support forwarding or conditional forwarding options for domains used on an on-premise network.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM)

  • The user experience is not as intuitive as other products. We have to be more restrictive around level 1 help desk access compared to NCM or NPM in SolarWinds.
  • Making and enforcing changes, not just monitoring, has been hit or miss in some instances.

We are heavily invested in SolarWinds. We currently own Network Performance Monitor, Netflow Traffic Analyzer, User Device Tracker, Server Application Monitor and Network Configuration Manager. We have NOC mode setup for deskside support for monitoring any down devices that may effect our network across the globe. This application gives us the information we need when we need it.

Like most AWS services the usability of the product is pretty good. The AWS console provides a single interface from where all the configurations can be done in a jiffy. Having said that for new users who are coming from traditional hosting services might feel a bit out of place.

SolarWinds IPAM is like what SolarWinds itself says, i.e. easy to use and simple. SolarWinds has really made their orion and non-orion platform products so simple that any newbie can give a try and make the best use out of it. I learned SolarWinds IPAM by myself in a POC environment, and not just IPAM but other modules and now I own 6 certifications. You see how easy to use this product is.

We do not integrate IPAM into other systems other than the standard Orion integration. The performance is reasonable, however, we are running all the SolarWinds applications on a very large server.

The product is simple enough that the docs and the UI stand on their own. Its one of the least confusing (/most intuitive) AWS products. As with all Amazon products, don't expect strong email or human support-- you're going to be using their documentation. If you need a human to guide you through the DNS process, you should consider a tool like CloudFlare or NameCheap; if you're a developer, Route53 is where you want to be.

I have not contacted customer support and therefore have no experience in this area. I know we have some issues with our VAR support at this time for Orion, but I don't know if the IPAM falls into the same support structure. Perhaps others in the organization may know more regarding the support area.

Know the full scope of what you will be installing. Solarwinds can be a very complex installation. IPAM is just one fairly simplistic piece.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Route 53

When working with AWS, Route 53 is hands down the better solution. If you live in GCP, then Google Cloud DNS is the way to go. GoDaddy is more of a consumer-facing product and is perfectly fine when Services are not being utilized in any Cloud Environment. Eventually, all of our DNS ends up in AWS or GCP...

SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM)

SolarWinds IP Address Manager was cheaper than both alternatives and far easier to manage. Device42 interface is years behind what Solarwinds offers. It is very outdated; BT Diamond required remote management and we constantly had to message support, it reached a point where it was better not to have the product at all.

We have not experienced any scalability issues with this product. However, SolarWinds needs to allow users to scale horizontally without any license restrictions. For example, we would like to separate Netflow and Orion onto different platforms but are unable to due to license restrictions.

Return on Investment

Amazon Route 53

  • Route 53 has saved me a lot of time with managing DNS for clients' domains.
  • Route 53 does things that normal registrar DNS can't, allowing us to better serve customers.
  • Route 53 helps us avoid downtime on our websites quite regularly.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM)

  • IPAM has saved countless hours of running scripts and gathering data to compile reports to plan re-subnetting globally.
  • IPAM has reduced helpdesk incidents by immediately spotting bad DNSR and IP conflicts.
  • IPAM has helped eliminate blocks on projects whereas there is not currently enough address space requiring major changes to accommodate more IP'ed servers, gear, etc.
