BlueCat Networks Fortifies Position as Leader in IPAM/DNS/DHCP With the Debut of the Proteus 2150 and Adonis 750 Appliances

BlueCat Networks is Transforming the Economics of IP Address Management

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 05/16/07 -- BlueCat Networks, leading developer of IPAM, DNS and DHCP appliances, today announced the availability of its Proteus 2150 IPAM and Adonis 750 DNS/DHCP appliances, which are designed to address the network management and security needs of the small and medium size enterprise (SME).

The sheer number of IP addresses in use today along with the continued explosive demand for VoIP, NAC, wireless and other IP-based applications has dramatically increased network complexity. While adopters of IP Address Management (IPAM) appliances have traditionally been large organizations such as Fortune 500 companies, as well as government and military agencies and higher education institutions, the need for resilient, highly available and manageable networks traverses businesses of all sizes. Until now, resource and financial restraints have resulted in SMEs operating without IPAM or DNS/DHCP solutions in place.

"We recognize that the need for robust, purpose-built appliances like Adonis and Proteus is not just limited to large enterprises," said Michael Hyatt, CEO and co-founder of BlueCat Networks. "Network complexity is a growing concern for organizations of every size, and with the launch of these new appliances, we are now providing a fully scalable solution for all markets."

Proteus 2150 IPAM Appliance for the Small and Medium Size Enterprise

The Proteus 2150 IPAM Appliance is the only end-to-end IPAM solution for both DNS and DHCP optimized for the SME market. Like the enterprise-class Proteus 5000, the Proteus 2150 is equipped with a firewall-grade operating system, a powerful Web-based management interface and robust database technology, providing centralized management for up to ten Adonis appliances.

Proteus 2150 offers a multi-core architecture, built-in network discovery tools, migration templates, MAC pooling and full DNS and DHCP IPv4/IPv6 support to make it easier than ever for network administrators to manage their networks, save time and lower costs. Proteus leverages the strengths of BlueCat Networks' award-winning Adonis DNS/DHCP appliances, providing end-to-end IP Address Management. This greatly simplifies the organization and management of complex networks, and provides administrators with the unprecedented ability to delegate, secure, track and monitor critical resources over their IP network using a unique multi-core architecture.

The Proteus 2150 also includes built-in disaster recovery and real-time database replication capabilities, thereby providing wide-area failover functionality and zero data loss when a network outage does occur. Proteus 2150 ships with redundant hardware, including hot-swappable hard drives and power supplies, to minimize the risk of a network outage. A complete list of Proteus 2150 features is available at www.bluecatnetworks.com.

Adonis 750 DNS/DHCP Appliance

The new Adonis 750 DNS/DHCP appliance is built on the award-winning Adonis 1000 platform but engineered and priced for small and medium size enterprises. The Adonis 750 provides support for IPv4 and IPv6 networks, along with high availability and disaster recovery capabilities for uninterrupted network service. Additionally, the appliance features pre-connect network admission control (NAC); Microsoft®- certified Active Directory integration; advanced VoIP functionality, including advanced support for custom DHCP options, Vendor Profiles and NAPTR records; and a built-in firewall for protection against zero-day exploits.
