No matter the size of the company, networks are constantly growing in complexity, and that comes with challenges. When networks were small and relatively static, network management was as simple as creating a spreadsheet to track IP addresses and associated hostnames. However, as networks grow and business demands become more complex, spreadsheets just don’t cut it.
Automate your environment
Spreadsheets were simply not built to manage network infrastructure. Duplicate and outdated information begin to take their toll on network administrators, with precious time and effort wasted in investigating and resolving these conflicts.
Spreadsheets also don’t allow for tracking changes, nor do they allow multiple administrators to work concurrently, leading to fat-finger errors, network conflicts, and even outages.
Enterprise DNS gives your team a single, unified view into your network for maximum visibility and optimal control.
Combine IPAM, DNS, DHCP infrastructure
An IP address spreadsheet relies solely on the administrator to accurately and completely document network changes, every time. It’s time to take the pressure off and make the move to BlueCat Address Manager. BAM directly manages the DNS and DHCP infrastructure and validates changes before deploying them, ensuring nothing is lost and preventing formatting errors.
Your company’s growing. Can your network grow with it?
When manually managing your network, any significant change can mean a lot of work, including updating or even redoing spreadsheets. With Enterprise DNS, as networks are created, split, or repurposed, administrators can adapt quickly and easily rollback changes. Advanced features like role-based access control and reporting help maintain network stability and security, no matter how much networks change.
Safe, smart migrations
BlueCat’s DNS experts use a proven migration methodology to simplify and de-risk migrations, ensuring timely and cost-efficient transitions.
