Dorado's Redcell Chosen by Imperial Online

Dorado Software has announced the deployment of its Redcell product suite at Imperial Online, a South African service provider, involving help from Solution Blox, the Dorado-certified EMEA partner.

Imperial Online says the growth common among service providers is "even more fierce in the emerging African market." Company officials say they determined that "existing disparate infrastructure management platforms would require significant consolidation and feature enhancement."

Dorado Software's Redcell Suite was chosen, Redcell officials say, due in part to its modular offering -- individual products can be purchased separately -- while combining server and network monitoring in a single platform.

Andries Coetzee, general manager of Imperial Online, said Redcell had the "single console" approach they were looking for as well.

The Redcell product consolidated "over a dozen monitoring and management products into a single product," a single, integrated platform "spanning multiple layers, domains, networks and services," Dorado officials say.

Besides the ability to manage the entire data center and network infrastructure from a single console, operational efficiencies also include consolidated reporting. The Redcell deployment gives users the ability to monitor and manage customer networks from the console.

All of the described Redcell products are generally available and trial software is available on the Dorado Software site.

In July TMC had the news that Dorado Software announced that Greatbatch, a company developing technologies used in medical devices and industrial applications, had adopted their integrated Redcell enterprise products to automate IT operations and reduce operational expenses of their global and expanding network.

"We were looking for a single tool for IT asset configuration, remediation and monitoring, and Redcell had everything that we were looking for already integrated, and we liked the price," said Dave Nebral, network/telecom manager at Greatbatch at the time.

Nebral added that the company was "impressed with Redcell's proactive capabilities. Upon installation, Redcell immediately began adding value to our network operations."

Although the immediate appeal was Redcell's key functionality for resource management including monitoring, inventory, configuration and performance management, Nebral said, Greatbatch "realized that Redcell will increase operational efficiencies."
