Datalink on Demand Labs
From your office or ours, Datalink on Demand Labs make it easy to test drive the latest hardware and software technologies. Leverage our physical and virtual labs to see, learn about, and validate solutions before you invest and implement.
Put technology solutions to the test
We offer technology demonstrations at our physical labs in Minneapolis. You can also participate in a virtual demo from the convenience of your office. Our labs enable you to experience a wide variety of technology demonstrations, including:
- Long-distance, site-to-site replication
- Data recovery
- WAN optimization
- Cloud solutions
Our physical and virtual lab capabilities help simplify access, save you time, and make it easy to gather and share information. You can use our labs to conduct performance and interoperability testing based on your requirements or as a physical test site for your organization. You'll gain the insights you need to maximize the return on your investments and prove without a doubt the fastest ways to achieve your organizational goals.
Prove what's doable with the cloud
As a fully functional cloud demonstration environment, Datalink on Demand Labs provide you with the opportunity to see demonstrations of predefined cloud use cases that may apply to your organization, including:
- Test organization via a private cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering
- Development organization via a private cloud Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering
- Generic IaaS hybrid cloud services (i.e., virtual machine configurations, virtual networking, and virtual storage)
- IaaS cloud services for cloud providers
These use cases are intended to give you a clear path to the benefits of the cloud – and to the fastest way to leveraging the efficiencies of cloud for your business. From there, we can transform these initial proofs of concept into specific use cases with our subscription Datalink on Demand Labs and on-premise pilot projects through our cloud proof of concept offering.
Get your infrastructure up and running faster
Through Datalink labs, we can prepare the technology solutions you purchase through us, so deployment is faster and easier. Our experienced IT specialists configure, load, and test each solution to your specifications. This process ensures technology solutions are in plug-and-play mode when they arrive at your location – saving you time, hassle, and money associated with preparing technology for deployment.
Benefit from our experience
Datalink on Demand Labs provide our professional services teams with venues to test, validate, and report on beta and new hardware and software releases, as well as cloud use cases. Additionally, our multi-purpose labs serve as a training and development center for our professional services teams. Datalink physical and virtual labs enable our teams to stay current on the latest technologies, gain valuable hands-on experience, and facilitate knowledge transfers with you during the consulting, analysis, design, implementation, management, and support phases of each project.
