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 is a software-defined IPAM solution implemented as a unified management overlay. By supporting multi-vendor environments and adhering to open networking standards, it is the IPAM solution of choice for elastic data center environments running alongside Microsoft AD and BIND.
2. Nixu DHCP is a virtualizable DHCP software appliance designed for traditional networking and NFV-based environments. Nixu DHCP Server automates the manual routines associated with installing and running traditional DHCP servers with support for virtually any x86-based computing environment, both native and virtual.
With standard automated software updates and DHCP security features incorporating rate-limiting alongside an Intrusion Prevention System, Nixu DHCP Server has been offering unparalleled performance since 2006. Additionally, managing Nixu DHCP Server with Nixu IPAM provides the optimal combination of DHCP management, performance and Total-Cost of Ownership (TCO).
3. Nixu Secure Name Server (SNS)is a virtualizable DNS software appliance designed for traditional networking and NFV-based environments. Nixu SNS automates the manual routines associated with installing and running traditional DNS servers while supporting native and virtual x86-based computing environments.
With standard automated software updates and patented DNS security features, incorporating rate-limiting alongside an Intrusion Prevention System, Nixu SNS has been able to offer unparalleled DNS security since 2006. Additionally, managing Nixu SNS with Nixu IPAM provides the optimal combination of DNS management, security and Total-Cost of Ownership (TCO).
4. Nixu Network Equipment Extractor (NEE) is a virtualization-ready L2&L3;discovery solution designed for traditional networking and SDN-based environments. It is ideally suitable for both traditional network environments and NFV initiatives. Nixu NEE uses SNMP polling to locate active network equipment and to extract information from their ARP tables.
By combining the network discovery function with the built-in support for Nixu IPAM, Nixu NEE allows customers to find all networks activated in their network equipment and push those automatically to Nixu IPAM. Once added, Nixu NEE runs through the ARP tables to fetch information such as IP, MAC, VLAN, PortID, time-stamps and vendor details, populating all managed networks automatically with these pieces of information.
Nixu Software simplifies cloud application deployment for enterprises and managed service providers who need to automate the IP commissioning process. The company's patented technology easily integrates with existing infrastructure allowing IT departments to manage IP resources in real-time.
Nixu NameSurfer Suite® is a virtualization-ready IPAM software appliance solution implemented as a centralized IP address management overlay. By supporting multi-vendor environments and adhering to open networking standards, it is the IPAM solution of choice for cloud computing initiatives and existing Microsoft AD architectures.
