What is DDI?

DDI is the abbreviation of Domain Name System (DNS), Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and IP Address Management (IPAM). 

It is a combination of these three elements of networking to form an integrated service or solution.  

Why do we need DDI?

Business is evolving at an aggressive pace, propelled by the need for fresh and creative data-driven solutions, rapid business restructuring, and improved business performance. In all business-led IT transformations, network infrastructures form a foundation for digital transformation, hybrid cloud, virtualisation, SDN, NFV, IPv6, mobility, and the Internet of Things (IoT) and more. The pace for change is ever-growing due to shifting competitive landscapes across industries in a rapidly emerging world of digital business and automation everywhere.

In today’s rapidly changing business environment fueled by technology, competitive dynamics drive and place severe strain on company networks—particularly mission-critical network services like DNS and DHCP services and IP Address Management.

DNS-DHCP-IPAM or DDI serves essential functions within a network: The DNS server ensures connection routing to all applications and services. The DHCP server supplies and assigns IP addresses within a network. IPAM provides IP address space management and maintains a central repository of DDI resources to provide accurate network visibility and ensure overall network continuity and policy compliance.

SOLIDserver is the backbone of DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management (DDI) programs. Whether for data centre automation, internet DNS, LAN infrastructures, cloud computing, digital transformation, and any IT organisation grappling with dynamic and secure infrastructure complexities. 

From device implementation orchestration to IT Service Management (ITSM) process regulation, DDI allows software-defined networking (SDN) to become integrated into the entire IT ecosystem.

DDI appliances reinforce the core network pillars to support your company’s imperatives, maintain business stability and lower running costs with smart automation.

The approach enables complex, automated control of IPAM, DNS, and DHCP resources in a single operation, saving network administrators up to 80% of their time.

Smart DDI

Simplified, Automated and Secure Network using Integrated DDI Services

EfficientIP’s Smart DDI solution integrates management of DNS-DHCP-IPAM, VLANs-VRF, and VLANs-VRF with devices and network interfaces into a single operation.

This expanded DDI architecture provides high availability, elastic scalability, and advanced protection based on policy-driven management and automation. Your network infrastructure would actively help your company imperatives and development with SOLIDserver Smart DDI technology.

Dynamic network discoveries include unrivalled insight and reconciliation capabilities, ensuring total network data integrity and a consistent source of truth (SSOT). 

Even networking and IP services from IaaS providers such as AWS IPAM and Azure IPAM may be added to the central IPAM and used in automation.
