Manual management adds operational burden

Managing DHCP services burdens the limited resources of IT organizations. Scaling up the deployment reduces visibility and control—especially across distributed enterprises.

Outdated servers are vulnerable to exploitation

DHCP implementation is often done using outdated service infrastructure with weak authentication mechanisms, requiring additional monitoring tools to detect and remediate malicious activities.

Predictable DHCP service performance is not guaranteed

While DHCP server failures can cause significant disruptions to network connectivity, traditional solutions fail to offer guaranteed performance, proactive troubleshooting, and automated resolution.

Key benefits of Nile DHCP Service

Reduce the risk of disruptions due to server failures. Nile’s cloud-powered DHCP Service caters to the unique needs of high-growth enterprises, higher education institutions, and distributed enterprises.

For network engineering

Give IT admins a unified view plus one-touch setup as they provision zero trust network segments within their Nile Access Service.

For network security

Empower IT admins with automated infrastructure security controls, protecting against tampering and phishing attacks.

For network operations

Automatically scale with increasing demand, so IT admins no longer have to manually maintain DHCP infrastructure.

For cloud-first organizations

Align DHCP management with the as-a-service model today’s modern enterprises embrace, by consuming cloud-native IT solutions.

For dynamic environments

Automate IP management resource allocation and easily onboard a high volume of BYOD and IoT devices.

For multi-site deployments

Eliminate potential configuration mistakes and operational burden as you scale your distributed enterprise business.

Real-world results


traditionally manual tasks in maintaining DHCP service for your network.

“The importance of a stable DHCP service can’t be overstated. Without it, no one can access the network. Before the Nile DHCP Service, we used to spend hours manually managing and maintaining our DHCP server infrastructure.”

Frequently asked questions

Will I need to use a different portal for Nile DHCP? 

No. Nile DHCP is offered as an optional add on to the Nile Access Service, and it is fully integrated once the subscription is active. Customers can use the Nile Portal to provision Nile DHCP Service. Simplified and flexible pricing options are available. Contact us for trials and pricing information.

What kind of lifecycle support is provided?

Similar to other network services, Nile DHCP is part of the end-to-end lifecycle management capabilities offered within Nile Access Service. Customers only need to set up logical workflows with desired DHCP parameters to deploy to specified site locations.  Any changes to parameters can only be done under the customer’s control.

How does Nile DHCP handle high availability and failover? 

The service utilizes multiple clusters residing in the Nile Cloud, ensuring uninterrupted availability. Customers can use the Nile Portal they already use as part of Nile Access Service in order to see availability, performance, and latency for Nile DHCP.
