Overall Design Philosophy

NetBox is designed on a few simple principles below. It does not aim to cover every possible situation but the overall value does manage most parts of a full DCIM system.

REPLICATE THE REAL WORLD

Information captured in to the system needs to represent and be as close as possible to the real world to ensure that the data is accurate and makes sense to those who view it. 

SERVE AS THE SOURCE OF TRUTH

NetBox must be seen as the the final representation of all the data and the only trusted source within the environment. Correct information in, provides exponetially better information out.

KEEP IT SIMPLE

NetBox operates on the 80/20 rule. Support 80% of the required features to maintain as simple a system to manage and operate as possible. As it supports a well documented API, additional custom functionality could be added.

HUMAN REVIEW OF DATA INPUT

Data captured is not automated to allow for confirmation and verification. One is discourage to automate the input of data unless it is 100% verified since NetBox will be the defacto source of all data available.
