Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM)

We use IPAM to track subnet and host IP address assignments for our entire network. Primarily used for static IP assignments in our data centers and as a way to track dynamically assigned addresses from our DHCP infrastructure. This allows us to avoid assigning a duplicate IP addresses to static devices. The user interface is very intuitive and the color-coded icons allow us to quickly look down the list to see what addresses are being used and unused. Solarwinds also added a nice feature to test to see if the IP address is active elsewhere before reserving it. the search engine allows us to quickly focus on IP addresses at the subnet or host level.
  • Ease of use to assign/register IP addresses.
  • Easy search utility.
  • Intuitive.
  • Integration with Solarwinds Orion.
  • I do not see any holes in the product.
  • Ability to customize the user interface for management.
  • Ability to generate management graphical reports on IP status.
  • The ability to delegate user access to specific subnet or ranges.
  • Quick and easy way to track our IP address space usage.
  • The centralized data for all of our subnets in all of the various groups in the organization reduce the possibility of duplicate addressing and multiple applications where one consolidated application is more efficient.
  • The ease of use reduces the impacts of errors and training overhead to onboard new users to the product.
  • With IPAM integrated into Orion, we have a single pane of glass to manage multiple networking tools.
Sorry.. this is the only real IPAM I have used. The old-fashioned way has always been a spreadsheet. So, IPAM is much better than the manual approach.

Evaluating SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM) and Competitors

I do not see any different approach to doing research and a cost/benefit analysis.

SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM) Implementation

It was easy and straightforward. There we no issues and the ease of use was welcome.
Change management was a minor issue with the implementation - We followed out internal change management review and approval process. This is normal and part of our process. This is owned by the networking group and not considered an enterprise production application, so we have a degree of flexibility in our implementations.
  • We had no issues during the implementation.

SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM) Reliability

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.
We have never had any availability issues with SolarWinds products.
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.

Relationship with SolarWinds

I was not involved in the sales process. However, the sales team contacts us to see how we are doing and if we are satisfied.
SolarWinds is a very responsive organization and we are very satisfied when interfacing with the various groups inside the company. I personally feel they have a very knowledgeable and responsive support organization.
