SOLIDserver™ suite of appliances is designed to deliver highly scalable, secure and robust virtual and hardware appliances for critical IPAM-DNS-DHCP-NTP-TFTP services. EfficientIP's appliance delivers truly best in class reliability, security and management automation of the network infrastructure.

SOLIDserver™ is the cornerstone of DNS-DHCP-IPAM projects for Datacenter, Internet DNS, LAN infrastructures, cloud computing and for any IT organization dealing with the challenges of a dynamic infrastructure: IPv6, BYOD, DNS security (DNSSEC), virtualization, etc.

DDI Architecture Security, High Availability, and Management

EfficientIP offers a unique appliance based technology to intelligently simplify and automate design, deployment and management of critical DDI infrastructure.

  • Secure and reliable DNS, DHCP, IP address and VLAN plan designs
  • Intelligent policy-driven deployment automation for best practices enforcement
  • Comprehensive unified management for end-to-end control
SOLIDserver™ IPAM solution integrates seamlessly with heterogeneous DNS and DHCP infrastructure (SOLIDserver™, Microsoft®, Open Source-Bind DNS and DHCP ISC services) providing a centralized management of IPAM (IPv4-IPv6) with network services for global visibility, comprehensive control and cost-effective management.

SOLIDserver™'s embedded SmartArchitecture™ innovation provides the next generation management capability of multi-vendor DNS & DHCP services to dramatically simplify the deployment of state-of-the-art resilient, robust and secure DNS-DHCP architectures.

SOLIDserver™ hardened operating system is reliable, scalable and secure. Advanced built-in security mechanisms protect against attacks and ensure data integrity. It includes all required features to quickly deploy and centrally manage appliance system and network configurations. SOLIDserver™ is installed quickly and includes "one-click" upgrade technology, enabling smooth or global patching for top-level security of your network services and lower administration cost.

Device Manager, NetChange, and SPX Extensions

Device Manager, NetChange and SPX extensions integrate with the SOLIDserver™ DDI appliance suite delivering unified management of devices and network interfaces with DNS/DHCP/IPAM and VLANs/VRF in a single process.

  • Device Manager - Inventory and allocation management of devices/network interfaces unified with DDI processes
  • NetChange - Automate switch configuration: policy-based, highly visible, secure, reversible, delegatable and auditable.
  • SPX - Manage and Automate RIR declaration life-cycle

SOLIDserver™ DDI Appliances Suite

The SOLIDserver™ suite is based on a wide range of hardware and virtual models designed to meet the needs of environments from small branch offices to the largest enterprises and service providers. Most of the SOLIDserver™ hardware platforms are delivered with hot-swappable critical components to ensure the highest level of hardware reliability.

EfficientIP's DNS and DHCP appliances offer unparalleled service performance, up to 17 million queries per second for the DNS service and to 6,000 requests per second for the DHCP service.
