Agilent Technologies, Inc., in an effort to lower maintenance costs and simplify management of its IP addresses, began researching appliance-based DNS, DHCP and IP address management (DDI) solutions as a better and more cost-effective alternative to its existing Nortel Net/ID running on HP-UX servers. According to Circle ID, the company felt a complete hardware refresh of 'classic' server infrastructure would be too costly and decided to change its entire infrastructure instead.

"’The solution was implemented in one year, applying a phased approach where sites/countries were migrated over from NetID to BlueCat,’ noted Steinboehmer. ‘Agilent is currently running Proteus - P4 and Adonis, all on dedicated appliances,’ Steinboehmer continued. ‘During and since implementation, the BlueCat support has been very responsive and helpful every time we engage them.’"
