Anyone who has tried to set up their own hosting solution will tell you there is nothing more important than connectivity. A user who can’t connect to their virtual training lab environment is simply not going to have a good training experience. Companies often underestimate the complex variety of firewalls, proxies, anti-virus, and pop-up blocking software that connection software must contend with. Our connection software has a proven track record of getting students connected no matter what their network configuration is.
ReadyTech has multiple data centers strategically located in the United States, Europe and Asia with 24/7/365 monitoring. As we’ve learned from operating the leading training delivery platform since 1993, training departments care about the availability and performance of their online classes and want classes quickly distributed with expectations of low latency and fault tolerance. Prior to each class, we identify where instructors and students are located and deploy hardware or cloud resources at the optimal data center for fast, reliable training delivery.
If you think your hardware is too custom or complex to use a virtual training lab vendor, think again. As a technology company, we love custom hardware challenges. Whether you are training on a proprietary network or security equipment, BIOS-level programming, or some abstract wireless equipment, we promise we can host your virtual training labs and provide a solution you will love. You can put your equipment in one of our data centers or we can connect to it in your data center and get started immediately.
ReadyTech is one of the few virtual training lab providers that can take your proprietary hardware and host it in our data center as part of the lab setup. To read about a custom lab solution we host for one customer, read our case study on Johnson Controls.
We love the cloud but the truth is when it comes to pure performance, nothing beats hardware and we are one of the only companies that supports both. With hardware labs, there is no virtualization layer between your application and the physical server. Each student gets their own physical server so there is no sharing, which happens within the cloud. Besides performance, there are many other reasons customers choose to use hardware over a cloud-based solution. For example, some customers need systems with real graphics cards or access to real-time processing that isn’t available in the cloud. Some customers need each student to have hypervisor access to a system.
All clouds are not equal. Our cloud is designed specifically for hosting virtual training labs. We provide a perfect balance between performance and price to meet the needs of most training organizations. Our cloud was designed from the ground up to provide the ideal solution for a global training organization. From our data centers in the US, Asia, and Europe, we provide excellent worldwide performance. Our proprietary desktop viewer technology outperforms all the generic viewers other companies use. This allows you to provide your students with a fast, stable environment they will love.
ReadyTech provides the best lab options for your training. We have solutions for almost every conceivable lab setup and configuration. Whether you require a complex setup that involves proprietary hardware, are a SaaS vendor who doesn’t require a 3rd party hosted lab, or anything in between, we can do it.
We help you reach a global market by providing our solutions in 14 languages including: Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swedish. By offering classes to international students, you dramatically increase the size of your potential market.
Instructors can send surveys, tasks, exams and polls to students anytime. For example: send a survey before class to discover your students’ learning objectives, or send an exam after class to reinforce training concepts and create a sense of value in the course.
