Network infrastructure solutions provider, Heficed, a company headquartered in London serving industries such as hosting, automotive and healthcare, is rolling out its Bring Your Own IP (BYOIP) feature. It would enable IP holders to bring already owned IPs onto Heficed’s infrastructure stack easily.
The rollout comes in an effort to provide customers with more flexibility towards their IP resource governance. It would also contribute to the company’s end goal: providing a fully automated network infrastructure solution.
Until now, clients could only host IP resources leased via the company’s IP Address Market – soon to become IPXO. While this would work great for the majority of Heficed customers, there are some who would like to use their own public IP addresses as they move to the Heficed bare-metal offering named Proto Compute, or virtual machine cloud named Kronos Cloud. The new feature would ensure that, in case of a migration, the clients’ IP resources move with the application without any hassle.
“It is a fairly straightforward process that will streamline both the necessary document handling and the subnet announcement procedure by limiting back-and-forths with ISPs,” said Vincentas Grinius, CEO of Heficed. “This will speed up the tedious process spanning across a day or two, and turn it into a quick 15-minute task.”

Fully Automated Infrastructure
With the new feature on-hand, Heficed says it is steadily heading towards offering a fully automated infrastructure solution. According to Mr. Grinius, limiting the need for in-between communication is not only crucial in terms of accelerating processes but also reduces the possibility of human error.
“The more automation, the less room there is for mistakes. However, it should be clear that eliminating human influence is not our goal,” added Mr. Grinius. “Our aim is a well-established process workflow that maintains operational stability, allowing us to direct the creativity of our team at developing strategies for reaching long-term goals.”
In an effort to continue refining its product suite to match market demand, Heficed has teamed up with other companies. Heficed has been collaborating with IPinfo.io for example, one of the leading IP data providers in the world, to enhance industry-set IP address accuracy standards. And also with Equinix, the global interconnection and colocation data center company, to leverage mutual resources for providing widespread accessibility to IP assets.
