BlueCat Adaptive Applications are licensed, out-of-the-box applications that provide you with advanced DDI functionality with minimal configuration. 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 Cloud Discovery & Visibility Adaptive Application introduces a method to retrieve data from AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and, import the discovered objects into Address Manager. This provides continuous, real-time visibility into the changes to your AWS, Azure, and GCP infrastructure.
Note: The BlueCat Cloud Discovery & Visibility Adaptive Application only provides visibility into your AWS, Azure, and GCP infrastructure. You cannot use the BlueCat Cloud Discovery & Visibility Adaptive Application to import Address Manager data into your AWS, Azure, and GCP infrastructure.

The application imports the following information from each cloud environment:

AWS
  • AWS Private VPCs/Subnets
  • AWS Public IP Ranges
  • AWS EC2 Instances
  • AWS DNS Hostnames (Internal)
  • AWS DNS Hostnames (External)
  • AWS Elastic Load Balancers v2 (ELBv2)
  • AWS Route 53 (Private DNS)
  • AWS Route 53 (Public DNS)
  • AWS VPC Endpoints
Azure
  • Resource Groups
  • Azure Virtual Networks and Subnets
  • Azure Virtual Machines
  • Azure Load Balancers
  • Azure Private DNS Zones

GCP

  • GCP Public VPC/Subnet
  • GCP Virtual Machines
  • GCP Load Balancers

Note: The AWS, Azure, and GCP account is configured in the Adaptive Application setup and used to continuously monitor and retrieve changes from your AWS, Azure, and GCP infrastructure. You do not need to be logged into the AWS, Azure, and GCP workflow for visibility to occur.
