ACT reseller CES Computers has finalised a $3 million-plus rollout of server systems in over 80 foreign countries -- from Kathmandu to Moscow -- for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).
CES account manager Brad Dawson said the Build 6 project tender was won by CES and involved the supply and replacement of foreign post infrastructure servers throughout the world. The rollout used Novell NOS and Hewlett-Packard LH3r NetServers, he said.
The former HP corporate reseller of the year has also secured another deal with DFAT worth an estimated $8-10 million over two years to design, develop and supply the Department's secure network around the world, Dawson said.
The 18-month Build 6 project drew praise from Doug Woodhouse, DFAT's assistant secretary, information management branch . "The CES approach of a no-nonsense, minimum-fuss, let's-get-the-job-done attitude was exactly what we needed for a successful implementation, on time, on budget and with a minimum of technical issues," he said.
