iland Launches Cloud-based LabEngine

LabEngine enables organisations to rapidly deploy and scale cloud-based environments for training, demos, and sales enablement


iland, an award-winning global cloud service provider of secure and compliant Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) and cloud backup services (BaaS), announced the availability of iland LabEngine. The new service is available from iland’s US, UK, Netherlands, Australia and Singapore cloud datacentres.

iland LabEngine enables organisations to rapidly deploy and scale cloud-based environments for training, demos, and sales enablement. Until now, building a virtual training environment was expensive and time-consuming.

Demo labs were costly and underutilised, and proof-of-concepts required heavy investment in time from the customer. With on demand virtual labs powered by LabEngine, companies can deliver high quality content in an easy-to-manage, highly-scalable, cost-effective and reliable environment.

"At Nimble Storage, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company, we are always looking for innovative ways to enable our internal and channel engineering teams to train and demo our technologies, including InfoSight Predictive Analytics. We partnered with iland to provide a scalable, on demand, cloud-based training platform to support our global sales engineering training. This has let our team focus on delivering the highest quality content without worrying about the infrastructure needed to support it," said Randy Hopkins, VP of Nimble Storage systems engineering.

"Based on the success we've already seen with LabEngine, we plan to use it to power our proof-of-concept lab, which we expect will optimise and compress our sales process.”

iland LabEngine enables users to create elaborate environments including nested hypervisors, complex networking and multiple virtual machines. Customers can easily migrate existing virtual machines or quickly create new ones in the iland platform and develop lab templates to save and deploy at scale.

Through a simple user interface, these environments can be scheduled for remote access for internal or external customers to access exact copies of these environments. Lab owners can provision environments on demand, tying into the iland Secure Cloud Console.

The iland LabEngine is a cost effective, scalable and agile solution organisations can use to deliver content to consumers, instead of worrying about infrastructure. Pay-as-you-go pricing and rapid scale means these environments can be used when needed, without fixed capital overhead.
