IP address management tool available for free

Infoblox releases freeware tool designed to help enterprise IT upgrade their IP address management approach.

Enterprise IT managers looking to automate the process of managing multiple distributed IP addresses but don't have budget approval to invest the cash might want to check out a freeware option available from Infoblox.

Infoblox IPAM Freeware for VMware is said to provide IT managers with a customizable dashboard that consolidates and automates several typically manual IP address management tasks. The free tool performs network discovery to populate the system with IP, MAC Address, operating system and other information. It also includes smart folders that make it possible to simply manage the data. And the software could help IT departments with up to 500 IP addresses utilize a network map to visualize larger blocks of network address space and subnets, making management easier, the company says.

"Infoblox has introduced this new free tool to demonstrate the kind of operational efficiencies, improved network integrity and visibility advantages enterprises can realize with Infoblox's automated, next-generation IP address management tools," said Richard Kagan, vice president of marketing at Infoblox, in a statement.
