One of the headline improvements made to 6connect’s ProVision software with the release of Version 8.1.0 is the addition of DNS Managed Servers. This critical update allows users to stay within the ProVision environment while they are managing DNS servers and related lifecycle tasks that operators must deal with. That means common functions like creating new servers and installing them, managing existing ones, or simply monitoring their activity, can all be done within the unified ProVision interface.

Many New Features
You’ll need to explore the Managed Servers area for yourself to see how it might improve your workflow. One of the reasons ProVision has become so popular with a range of clients is the flexibility that the platform delivers – you can easily adapt it to meet your own organizational demands. A few of the notable features that have come along with this new Managed Servers section include the following –
- New API endpoints have been added for Managed Servers support
- Use either the ProVision GUI or the command line to create and install DNS VMs
- Monitor vital stats such as disk usage, virtual memory, and CPU load, either in the GUI or through an API
