BlueCat acquires Men&Mice to boost its industry-leading DNS, DHCP, and IP address management (DDI) platform


Micetro 10.0 by Men&Mice

Micetro 10.0 brings new and improved features to help establish sustainable networking best practices in diverse and heterogeneous global enterprise networks.

The future of sustainable networks starts with us.

Micetro 10.0 is the new chapter in delivering Men&Mice's refocused and streamlined vision for the future of enterprise networks.

The new release comes with support for the latest versions of the ISC Kea DHCP server, PostgreSQL database, integration for automation via Terraform and Ansible, along with numerous new features and improvements in its user interface for a better user experience.

Extended enterprise DHCP support.

Micetro 10.0 supports the latest version of ISC's modern DHCP server software Kea, including its enterprise-grade high availability configuration to diversify and strengthen network resilience.

Kea's enhanced high availability functionality extends Micetro's existing redundancy capabilities for the database and server components and cross-platform xDNS Redundancy feature.

Organizations in need of overlapping redundancy can cover their entire DDI infrastructure, without sacrificing the flexibility and agility of Micetro orchestrating DNS, DHCP, and IPAM across multiple platforms.

New automation paths through Terraform and Ansible.

Micetro 10.0 supports open-source plugins to integrate DDI workflows into Terraform and Ansible.

Many businesses, already capitalizing on Infrastructure-as-Code and Network-as-Code functionality, are now able to extend those workflows with DDI.

Reusing proven workflows and internal expertise ultimately lowers OPEX. Extending these benefits to DDI through Micetro delivers better ROI for networking components, whether already existing or newly acquired.

PostgreSQL and MS SQL Server 2019 support.

Micetro 10.0 is delivering official support for the PostgreSQL database, as well as high availability features to maintain the network environment's fault tolerance.

Support for PostgreSQL, along with the existing support for Microsoft SQL Server, delivers more options for businesses to diversify their network infrastructure and create cross-platform redundancies, thereby strengthening network resilience.

Micetro is adapting to the naturally occurring diversity and evolution in technology, and strengthens Men&Mice's vision for backend-agnostic network orchestration.
