By the end of this article, we will have a blueprint that leverages OneFuse to generate a name, assign Network/IP Address as well as create DNS records for the deployed machine.  Although these examples are simple and static, they are setting the foundation for future articles where we will dive into creating more flexible and dynamic blueprints.

Creating a OneFuse IPAM Policy

OneFuse IPAM policies have some special qualities that make managing IPAM integrations very easy, flexible, and portable.  IPAM policies in OneFuse define the network or networks they represent abstracted from the actual IPAM provider.  This offers many benefits over network definitions that are tightly tied to a specific provider.  This allows for the use of more than one provider in the environment, it also allows for easy migration from one IPAM provider to another.
