Why leveraging DNS/DHCP services management at the architecture level can significantly reduce operational costs and ensure business continuity

572

Published on

Today competition and profitability exigences lead companies to extend their activity to new markets and new geographical zones. This implies for them a constant need to adapt their organisation and structure to those extensions, including the IT infrastructure. For network administrators, it means that they must have complete control over their network infrastructure in order to be able to deploy their architecture, create new subnets and integrate new organisation models efficiently and in a short period of time to match company’s fast development.
