Features


  • Supports one or more domains and networks in a single DNS configuration
  • Drives advanced BlueCat features such as User-Defined Fields¬†and DNS Views flexibly via the SovLabs Template Engine
  • SovLabs Template Engine allows for static text in combination with dynamic content such as vRA custom properties and/or custom logic
  • Employs several methods to improve DNS data integrity and mitigate issues from stale, duplicate or orphaned DNS records, such as retry logic, record availability and DNS propagation/post validation checks
  • DNS configurations are interchangeable between endpoint providers; avoid lock-in by easily adding additional DNS providers with other DNS modules from SovLabs
  • Allows for independent configurations for forward and forward/reverse record scenarios, if desired
  • BlueCat endpoints can also be used with the SovLabs BlueCat IPAM module
  • SovLabs DNS configurations may also be used with SovLabs network load balancer modules
  • Optional feature to designate a default DNS configuration if the domain(s) or network(s) are not matched to any other DNS configuration(s)
  • Supports up to 10 network interfaces per machine
