TORONTO – February 13, 2014 – Reliability, scalability and performance of the network are critical to the enterprise. With increased demands and complexity, a flexible solution that can track, control and secure the network through automation is essential. To combat this challenge, BlueCat, the leading provider of intelligent IP Address Management (IPAM) solutions, has released a new generation of DNS, DHCP and IPAM appliances that bring greater value, resiliency and manageability to the market.
“BlueCat appliances maximize performance while reducing data center footprint. They match the scale and performance organizations need at a price/performance ratio that is on average 60 percent better than our competition,” says Andrew Wertkin, CTO of BlueCat. “We can configure a BlueCat infrastructure to handle the demands of enterprises of any size and are production-proven in some of the world’s most complex networks.”
Second-generation (Gen-2) hardware appliances for BlueCat DNS/DHCP Server and BlueCat Address Manager are included in the release as well as the availability of the world’s fastest 1U DNS server that can service 200,000 DNS queries per second and can be clustered to provide over 1 million queries per second.
The increased processing power of the BlueCat appliances enable an unmatched level of automation, allowing customers to connect thousands of devices to the network in minutes without affecting query performance. “Customers today are provisioning and recycling virtual machines and services in cloud architectures at an incredible rate as they take advantage of the power of elastic compute, and these services must be addressable,” says Wertkin. “Additionally, the Internet of Things will drive connections at an unprecedented rate and our hardware will scale to meet that demand.”
BlueCat continues to offer best-in-class hardware reliability that is backed by a 5-year warranty and the company’s commitment to 4-hour on-site repair in hundreds of cities worldwide. In order to ensure a smooth transition and allow customers to rapidly realize the value of the new appliances, BlueCat solutions fully support the concurrent deployment of new and previous generation appliances with no compromise in capability or reliability.
