SaaS Labs is designed and used for companies with SaaS and cloud applications and do not need their students to connect to a remote lab to conduct training.
Cloud Learning via SaaS Labs
If you are training on a SaaS application or any cloud learning application that runs in a browser, we have a cost-effective and innovative way for you to deliver your virtual instructor-led training (VILT). Most companies with browser-based applications have two choices for delivering VILT:
Have the students use their local system for the virtual training labs. While free, it leaves the instructor unable to monitor and assist students during the course.
Give each student their own virtual training lab. This provides the oversight and control the instructor needs. However, providing a virtual training lab for someone that just needs a browser is not efficient.
There is now a 3rd choice which combines the oversight and control of virtual training labs with the cost effectiveness of having students use their own local system. ReadyTech Virtual Training Lab Solution allows students to use their own system to access the target application while providing the instructor with full oversight and control. As students work in the application, the instructor can see what they do and jump in and take control if a student needs help. While the instructor works on a student’s system, the student can see how the issue is fixed. ReadyTech Virtual Training Lab Solution requires no plugins or other software to be installed and supports all browsers and OS combinations. If you want more information about our solution for SaaS labs, contact us at email@example.com to setup a demo.
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.
Unlike other companies which leave you to do all the work of managing your training environments, we are a full service solution. Don’t spend your weekends setting-up and terminating virtual training labs for your classes or supporting students in awkward time zones. Let our 24/7 Live Support Team handle everything for you.
Another advantage of hardware can be the cost. In lab configurations where each student needs access to many virtual machines (VMs), hardware can provide a real cost savings because you pay a daily fee for the physical server regardless of how many VMs you run on it.
We have a big variety of hardware platforms to choose from. If you are not sure whether hardware or cloud is the right solution for you, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are happy to help you find the perfect solution to fit your needs.
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 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.

Save 30-70% switching from in-person to online training
The choice between in person training vs. online training is among the biggest financial decisions a training department makes. But the costs associated with in person training vs. online training are so different, making it hard to tell which training modality is the more economic option. To help answer this question, ReadyTech built this calculator to help you estimate the costs associated with in person training vs. online training.
