BlueCat Attracts Agilent
Agilent researches less costly network management.
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 220.127.116.11 - P4 and Adonis 18.104.22.168, all on dedicated appliances, Steinboehmer continued. During and since implementation, the BlueCat support has been very responsive and helpful every time we engage them."
