BlueCat’s DNS and DHCP platform centralizes and automates management of network infrastructure, minimizing errors and dramatically increasing reliability. BlueCat DNS is scalable and easy to manage, providing the foundation for robust network systems that are designed to accommodate the dynamic needs of your organization. BlueCat DHCP delivers secure, highly available, scalable, dual-stack support to your network – even in the cloud.
BlueCat DNS ensures your critical network infrastructure is reliable and business-critical core services are resilient and highly available. Centralizing and rationalizing DNS dramatically reduces the risk of outages caused by configuration changes or stale/inconsistent DNS records. DHCP Failover and Crossover High Availability (XHA) ensure that DHCP for both IPv4 and IPv6 retain the highest standards of service uptime.
Reduce risk of network failure
BlueCat delivers scalable, resilient and highly available DNS services across the enterprise, with the flexibility to deploy in high-throughput, centralized architectures, or fully-distributed environments with thousands of service delivery points. Zero-touch registration and asset management eliminates the need to manually manage registration of new devices.
Increase virtual and cloud agility
Simplify provisioning for physical, virtual and cloud environments by automating the assignment of IP addresses and names for new servers, virtual machines and workloads in the cloud.
Secure the enterprise
Leverage the pervasiveness of DNS to pre-empt and filter malicious activities for all devices and applications in violation of policies before they can affect business-critical data. BlueCat DNS and DHCP map users to their devices and tracks network activity enabling the removal, quarantining or blacklisting of devices with a single click.
Dual-stack support for IPv6 adoption and interoperability
BlueCat DHCP allows you to make the most of your limited IPv4 address space, and cohesively manage IPv6 and dual-stacked IPv4/IPv6 environments, including support for stateful DHCPv6.
Flexible deployment options
BlueCat DNS and DHCP solutions can be deployed as virtual or physical servers, or a combination of both. We license and support our software separately from hardware on the physical appliance and offer a perpetual hardware warranty, with no cost to switch from hardware appliances to virtual appliances. BlueCat’s enterprise DNS platform works seamlessly with cloud architectures, enabling a single pane of glass to manage every part of your network.
