BlueCat Gateway

BlueCat Adaptive Applications are licensed, out-of-the-box applications that provide you with advanced DDI functionality with minimal configurations. Adaptive Applications extend the functionality of the BlueCat core Adaptive DNS platform, DNS Integrity, in specific areas to drive increased customer value and competitive differentiation.

The BlueCat Server Update Services Adaptive Application enables you to perform upgrades or patch servers in parallel with the ability to stage the servers in a specified order, resulting in less interruptions and manual overhead by providing an automated upgrade process.

You can group servers into logical Server Batches so that updates are applied to a grouping of servers manually or using a scheduled update. This results in a consistent upgrade experience with reduced risk and upgrade time, especially when large numbers of DNS/DHCP Servers are involved. BlueCat Server Update Services provides flexibility on how upgrades are handled based on the needs of your environment.

BlueCat Server Update Services also retrieves critical system information of each DNS/DHCP Server including the current version, the patches installed, the platform (virtual or hardware), and associated IP addresses.
