IP Address Management

Tracking IP address assignments and DNS names for thousands of devices in a spreadsheet is inefficient, time-consuming, and error-prone. And you still have to manually configure your DNS and DHCP servers, validate IP assignments through discovery, and manage change windows. Reporting, auditing, and multi-administrator access control requirements impose additional challenges. Take control of your DHCP, DNS, and IPAM (DDI) management with flexible, reliable and modular Diamond IP software and appliances.

Diamond IP supports centralized management of multi-vendor DHCP and DNS server implementations, including Microsoft, stock ISC/BIND, and Cisco CNR, amongst others, so you can support a diverse DDI deployment through a single centralized web interface. IP utilization reports and alerts enable you to proactively manage IP address capacity and single-click allocations simplify subnet, pool and IP address assignment tasks. Granular administrator controls enable you to delegate DDI tasks to empower site administrators whilst retaining centralized control. Reporting, auditing, REST APIs, and task scheduling enable you to integrate DDI functions across your entire network and cloud deployment.

IPAM Resources

White Papers

  • IPAM Best Practices

    This comprehensive guide defines best practices for managing IPv4 and IPv6 address space and corresponding DNS and DHCP services.

  • Multi-Master DNS

    This white paper describes our multi-master DNS support to maximize availability of your DNS resources.

  • High Availability DDI

    Diamond IP solutions manage critical DHCP, DNS and IPAM services within your network. This guide provides insight into deploying these DDI services in high availability configurations.

  • Applying ITIL Best Practice Principles to IPAM

    This white paper explains how each of the main ITIL functional areas can be applied specifically to IP address management (IPAM), and the benefits that can be accrued from applying this management framework.

  • DNS Anycast for High Availability and Performance

    This white paper describes how DNS servers can be deployed in anycast configurations to achieve a number of benefits, including higher availability and resilience.


  • IPAM for the Internet of Things

    The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the extension of the Internet beyond connectivity and interaction among traditional user-operated devices like PCs, tablets, phones and like types of devices into the realm of connectivity and interaction with non-user operated devices such as sensors, monitors and remotely controllable devices. Internet-enabling such “unmanned” devices necessitates IP addressing of such devices, which, for deployments of hundreds or thousands, creates potential IP address management challenges. This webinar discussed IP address planning, IPv4 vs. IPv6, thing addressing using SLAAC and/or DHCPv6 and DNS considerations.

  • IPv4-IPv6 Dual Stack Address Management

    Deploying IPv6 may seem intimidating given the far-reaching impacts of network protocols on applications, devices, security and network management. This webinar provides information regarding how to justify IPv6 deployment, how to go about assessing IPv6 readiness and how to manage your IPv4-IPv6 address space. Managing address space requires allocation of IPv6 address blocks and subnets, assigning individual host IPv6 addresses directly or via DHCPv6 and the configuration of DNS for device name to IPv4 and IPv6 address lookups.


  • Diamond IP brochure

    A composite summary of core Diamond IP products and services, describing the many options that enable you to simply and securely manage your IP address space and respective DHCP and DNS services.

  • IPControl IP block management

    Very few self-proclaimed IPAM systems actually perform automated IP block management with the scale and elegant simplicity of Cygna's IPControl products.

  • Sapphire appliances

    Diamond IP offers several models and types of hardware appliances, summarized in this datasheet.

  • Sapphire virtual appliances

    Learn about the broad range of models, sizes and virtualization platforms for which Diamond IP offers virtual appliances enabling you to virtualize your IPAM, automation DHCP, and DNS network functions.

IPAM books by Cygna Labs authors

  • Introduction to IP Address Management

    This book provides a concise introduction to the three core IPAM networking technologies—IPv4 and IPv6 addressing, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), and Domain Name System (DNS)—as well as IPAM practice and techniques needed to manage them cohesively.

  • IP Address Management Principles and Practice

    As a natural follow-up to the author's previous book, Introduction to IP Address Management, this resource uniquely unifies all three foundational IP address management technologies, fully addressing their interrelationships and their cohesive management. It also describes the relevant protocols, configuration examples for the market-leading reference implementations from the Internet Systems Consortium (ISC), and techniques that can be employed to structure, monitor, secure, and manage them.
