Cloudflare

Excellent for managing server loads and site speed for our clients. Most would have to buy bigger hosting packages to handle their busy days, but CloudFlare picks up the traffic and reduces the burden on the server. Most clients can rely on smaller hosting accounts to keep their sites up.

SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM)

SolarWinds IPAM is well suited for requirements such as - Subnet Management, IP Management, IP Request requirements, DNS and DHCP Management. Since then API has evolved within SolarWinds and specially in IPAM module automation, things have become easy and that has increased the value of SolarWinds IPAM module. However few more changes would be required such pulling more information from DNS and DHCP server such as Gateway information, Host Mac Address and then integration with npm Discovery.

Pros

Cloudflare

  • Security: Cloudflare keeps our website safe from DDoS attacks and other malicious traffic.
  • CDN: Cloudflare caches our website content, increasing our website's reliability and reducing server load. This saves on bandwidth costs from web servers.
  • Registrar: We can migrate domains to Cloudflare, though they don't currently allow the purchase of new domain names. The benefit of this is cheaper renewal fees and fewer systems involved in managing our domains.

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

Cloudflare

  • Multiple Users - It would be great to be able to have multiple users on one account.
  • Itemized Cache - Would love to see a list of files that have been cached by CloudFlare's CDN and when they will expire. Also nice to optionally remove one or more files from the cache.

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.

Bring the interface into a more user friendly space.
Allow the user the ability to move root folders into other root folders. There are times when sites need to be combined into a new group and having to delete then re-add them is a huge pain. Make the popup screen for putting in information double the size so that you get everything in one window view rather than having to scroll.

  • We've been using a free plan, so we know that we aren't a priority on their list, but we had a severe issue in just one project, and they weren't able to help us with that.
  • We had to remove that website from Cloudflare and use another service since they couldn't help us, and they took a long time to respond to our inquiries.

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

Cloudflare

Cloudflare and CloudFront are both great tools. I would recommend Cloudflare for sites that are not hosted on Amazon, and CloudFront for sites using Amazon Web Services. The pricing and features are comparable. Overall, Cloudflare's free tier offers more services, which gives it a slight edge over the competition.

SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM)

SolarWinds is easier to configure than every other tool I have used including Infoblox. If you already use SolarWinds for monitoring IPAM, it can be bolted on and set up in minutes. Alerts are pre-configured and there are existing "canned" reports. I have yet to meet an IT user who has to either read the manual or take a training course to use it. It is simple, straightforward, and completely intuitive assuming you know what an IP address and subnet are.

Return on Investment

Cloudflare

  • Our business has online presences to reassure our customers, not to gain new ones, so the actual ROI is smaller than for most other people.
  • CloudFlare is super easy to use so I can make adjustments on the fly.
  • Safety and security is important and I don't have to worry about a lot of things due to CloudFlare.
Chris Widner | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM)

  • Super easy to track down a missing End point device.
  • IPAM has saved us hundreds of hours of tracking down devices and their location within our building and without it, we would probably be in trouble from our higher-ups.
  • IPAM provides such an easy to use interface that despite the up-front cost it is always worth the investment when trying to save time keeping track of all kinds of devices (Linux, Windows Server, Windows 10 Pro, etc.).
