Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM)

We use IPAM to automatically track the IP addresses in use throughout the organization, and record what devices are using those IPs and DNS names. We have this linked with other systems automation tools (inc. VMware Orchestrator) to automatically assign appropriate IP addresses to servers and other devices when they are added to the network, which saves us time and reduces human error.
  • Searchable IP Address Management
  • IP Automation
  • Ease of use
  • Reliance on Microsoft SQL server - would be nice to be able to install on other DB platforms
  • Price
  • The ROI time for our installation was 12 months, once automation benefits were realized.
The integration with the other SolarWinds products makes for a single pane of glass for management of your systems, which reduces administrative overhead compared with other solutions.
SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager (NCM), SolarWinds Network Topology Mapper, SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (npm)
SolarWinds IPAM is particularly suited to any complex environment where different geographic areas may be administered by different IT Teams, or where there is a high turnover of staff. The automated documentation it provides enables quick handing over to new staff/team members and makes sure that everyone is on the same page throughout the organization when it comes to IP Address Management.
