This product is made up of several tools, available as a series of subcommands of dns-tools. The tools can be used to manage your DNS services in general but are particularly useful in data center and cloud migrations. Included are the following six tools; validator, impact, resolver, migrate, ptr and hosts. The tools are highly flexible and composable allowing you to easily automate your DNS needs.
Simplify the migration to and from various DNS cloud service providers.
- Quickly migrate from a local BIND server to several cloud providers

- A must have tool for datacenter and cloud migrations
Reign in the madness: parse and analyze hosts files in bulk
- Quickly parse thousands of hosts files
- Sort and group your hosts files by FQDN or server
