BlueCat IPAM

The SovLabs BlueCat IPAM module for vRealize Automation enables organizations who utilize BlueCat for centralized IP address management to now have a fully automated method of obtaining and releasing IP addresses as the cloud environment dynamically scales. IP subnets can now easily be shared between vRA deployments and alongside existing tools and devices without fear of IP conflict.
