What Differentiates Nixu Software from the Rest?
Companies from hardware appliance background have optimized their product and solution architectures for closed computing environments running on specific pieces of hardware, forcing customers' hand when it comes to platform selection. Deploying these products as virtual appliances often lead to performance and resiliency issues because their architecture has not been intended for virtualization.
Having invented virtualizable software appliances in 2006, all products in Nixu DDI family are available as ISO images that can be used to jump start secure DNS, DHCP and IPAM servers in just minutes. Nixu supports virtualized computing environments by VMware and Citrix as well as general-purpose servers and blades from Dell, Hewlett-Packard, IBM and the like, providing customers with the freedom of choice not offered by our competitors.
Thanks to the unique, patent-pending software appliancing methodology used in Nixu DDI, our products offer advanced security features such as built-in intrusion prevention and support for centralized traffic monitoring, at lower Total Cost of Ownership than competition.

Nixu DDI Products
Our Product portfolio includes the following building blocks that can be integrated together:
1. Nixu NameSurfer Suite is a virtualization-ready IPAM solution supporting multi-vendor environments (including Microsoft AD networks) and adhering to open networking standards. With its powerful collection of tools and automation, Nixu NameSurfer Suite slashes DDI OPEX while minimizing the chance of network downtime.
2. Nixu DHCP Server is a virtualization-ready DHCP software appliance that can be run as standalone or as failover clusters for high availability. On a suitable platform, Nixu DHCP server scales up to several hundred leases per second performance.
3. Nixu Secure Name Server (SNS) is a virtualization-ready DNS software appliance that can be operated as authoritative or caching DNS server. On a suitable platform, Nixu SNS scales up to 100,000 queries per second performance.

Nixu Network Equipment Extractor (NEE) is a virtualization-ready network discovery system that polls the active network equipment for information on network clients and dynamically integrates that information with subnets managed in Nixu NameSurfer IPAM. Nixu NEE allows administrators to pinpoint the exact physical location of each client connected to the network at any time, thereby dramatically improving network transparency.
5. Nixu Registry Server is a Domain Name Registry Solution (DNRS) for generic and mid-sized TLDs. Designed as a solution framework with modular architecture, Nixu Registry Server can be configured and tailored on per-installation basis to meet the exact requirements of the customer.
