DUBLIN, IRELAND – 4 August 2010 – Today Afilias, a leading provider of Internet infrastructure services, announced that BlueCat Networks, the IPAM Intelligence™ company, has selected Afilias' FlexDNSSM Platform to power its new DNS offering. Proteus Cloud Services is the first service that fully integrates internal and external DNS with centralized IP Address Management (IPAM), providing customers with the simplicity of a single interface and vendor to manage all of their IP and DNS needs on one of the most highly reliable DNS networks available.
"We selected Afilias because of their professionalism and reputation as a secure, reliable DNS provider that is already serving over 16 million domains and billions of DNS transactions across the Internet today," said Luc Roy, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing for BlueCat Networks. "Afilias allowed us to bring a new solution to market which improves our customers' ability to manage their externalDNS, save them capital and operational expenses, improve their efficiency, and ensure that they have the best DNS available."
