Complex spreadsheets and home-grown solutions just don't cut it anymore - you need a solution that can give you comprehensive IP space visibility and prevent IP address conflicts from taking down network devices. Orion IP Address Manager (IPAM) allows you and your team to ditch your spreadsheets for an easy-to-use, centralized IP address management solution. And now Orion IP Address Manager is available as a stand-alone application, making management of your IP address space more affordable than ever.
IP conflict prevention
How much time do you spend troubleshooting IP conflicts? Orion IP Address Manager (IPAM) helps reduce IP conflicts by ensuring that your IP address space is always updated.
Orion IPAM enables you to quickly and easily configure powerful alert engines to respond to hundreds of different scenarios, including multiple condition checks of your IP address space. Rest assured that you'll be notified before a subnet or DHCP scope is full; alerts help you recognize and correct issues before your users experience fault or performance issues. Additionally, Orion IPAM can automatically escalate alerts until a problem is resolved or acknowledged.
DHCP server integration
DHCP server integration in Orion IPAM allows customers to add Microsoft DHCP servers and define a scanning frequency to automatically add scopes and subnets into the Orion database. This timesaving feature will ensure you have a single updated view into your IP address space. Combined with Orion IPAM's powerful alerting, you can receive quick notification of any subnets or DHCP scopes that are approaching capacity.
Subnet and scope snapshot
Managing a handful of IP addresses is easy, but toss in several hundred, let alone, several thousand IP addresses and you've got a real IP space nightmare. How do you keep tabs on each subnet to make sure an IP conflict is not looming around the corner? Rest assured that despite having multiple engineers adding and removing IP addresses, you'll always have an easy view into each of your subnets to ensure it is optimally allocated.
Subnet allocation wizard
Orion IPAM provides a Subnet Allocation Wizard to help you efficiently organize your managed IP address space into subnets that are sized appropriately for the extent and traffic of your network. Simply enter your supernet and subnet size and the wizard generates the subnets.
Detailed event recording
Managing an IP space by yourself is challenging, but when you have a team of network engineers, the real fun starts! How can you make sure each engineer is aware of each other's changes? How can you check who made an IP change or modified a subnet? With spreadsheets, all bets are off, and you are simply at the mercy of each person notifying everyone else when changes are made. With Orion IPAM, each IPAM-related change is recorded in detail so that other users can simply check an activity log. You can relax, knowing that your team of network engineers will spend their time managing the network instead of managing an IP address spreadsheet!
Historical IP address tracking
Orion IPAM offers the ability to historically track addresses and see how certain properties have changed over time. For example, you may want to track MAC addresses and hostnames previously assigned to an IP Address. With Orion IPAM, historical IP address tracking is just two clicks away.
Orion IPAM provides groups to help your team organize IP space. The drag-and-drop user interface makes it easy to immediately create groups that may contain any number of other groups, supernets, subnets, or individual IP addresses. Using Orion IPAM, you can group all the various network components related to each department of each branch office into its own group. This allows a local branch network engineer to manage his/her own IP addresses without impacting other branch offices.
Engineer's toolset integration
If you have both SolarWinds Engineer's Toolset and Orion IPAM, you can leverage the functionality of the powerful troubleshooting tools in Engineer's Toolset directly from Orion IPAM simply by using the "rightclick" mouse option or by selecting a tool from the Orion IPAM toolbar.
Flexible reportingProduct Highlights
Using the powerful capabilities of Orion Report Writer, IPAM data can be easily extracted and presented in a useful format. Orion Report Writer allows you to format your data exactly to your specifications and preview reports before you display them. When you have finished editing your reports, you can use the scheduler tool to schedule distribution of reports via email and to enable people to view them through the Orion web console.
