DDI Automation – A collaborative live demonstration with BlueCat
I had the pleasure of collaborating with my friends Dana Iskoldski and Chris Meyer over at BlueCat exploring and automating DNS, DHCP, and IP Address Management (IPAM) (DDI) with the BlueCat Address Manager (BAM) and the BlueCat Gateway.
Infrastructure as Code and network automation is not always about switches and routers – there is incredible value to be found automating all the way up the stack into the critical Layer 7 services like DNS and DHCP; or transforming from Microsoft Excel-based IP address management to a fully automated solution.
In this 2-part series watch us explore and ultimately automate DNS using the BlueCat BAM and Gateway APIs with Postman, Ansible, and Python
Part One – BAM API Automation with Postman and Ansible
I was invited by BlueCat to join a round-table discussion with 4 other IT professionals to have an open and honest discuss about the automation “Promised Land”
