Video from VMworld: Interview with BlueCat Networks’ CTO

All user group conferences have huge trade shows where partners can strut their stuff. VMworld 2014 in San Francisco is no exception.

This week editor Brian Jackson, who’s covering the conference for the IT World Canada group, found Andrew Wertkin, CTO of Toronto’s BlueCat Networks.

Wertkin was appointed chief technology officer in January, with company co-founder and former CTO Richard Hyatt becoming chief scientist.

BlueCat makes IP address management solutions, which might seem out of place at a conference where virtualization is the focus. But as Werkin explained, virtualization also creates problems with IP space that have to be solved.

In addition to IP address management, BlueCat also sell security solutions In May the company released its Threat Protection for DNS/DHCP, a software firewall to stop DNS attacks.

In February it issued a new generation of DNS, DHCP and IPAM appliances. It said its new 1U DNS server can handle 200,000 queries a second, and can be clustered to handle over 1 million queries a second.
