Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM)

SolarWinds IP Address Manager helps me make sense of what is on my network at my locations and how many IPs are being taken up in my VLANs. Much easier to use than what is built into Windows. I can get alerted if I reach a threshold of IPs, which is important for our lab environment. I am never surprised by this tool on what's going on device-wise.
  • Lets me know how many IPs are being used in my network
  • Lets me know about any possible IP address conflicts
  • Gives me history of MAC addresses that have used this IP
  • Able to easily export my IP data
  • Would like to know what ports are open on the IPs
  • Would be useful if they helped you configure this with best practices when you get it
  • Able to focus time on other things as this saves time for me over using Windows tools
  • The yearly cost is crazy as not much has changed with it in 5 years.
This I found much easier to implement and the interface was easy to use out of the box. The sales team was more diligent in getting me the information needed to help prove the usefulness of this tool to my upper management. They quickly got the right person to answer my technical questions.

SolarWinds IP Address Manager is well suited for a medium- to large-sized business with lots of VLANs, so you can keep an eye on what's going on. For a small office, I think this would be overkill. Especially useful with lab environments and dev environments with lots of change, so you can keep a handle on it.

I was using the most of the Orion tools, which saved me so much time and I was able to have a central location for every possible monitoring you can think of. Once I read about what IPAM could do, it did a 30 day trial and I was sold. It integrated into the orion interface and was simple to install and get started with.

SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM) Support

When I first got this product 5 years ago, I could tell you that I would have given this a 10. Now, they are slow to answer and when you finally get them on the phone they are great. They need to hire more people and get support back to 10.
