We’ve effectively eliminated the need to purchase costly test beds for application testing."
Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) March 1, 2010
Great Lakes Computer, a 24 year old billion dollar global technology reseller, announced today the opening of its new performance benchmarking & software testing facility in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Application providers, software developers and corporations have always struggled with balancing the need for establishing performance benchmarks on numerous hardware platforms and operating systems, while minimizing the expenses associating with purchasing multiple test beds of computer hardware. Also, companies looking to shift toward a more virtual environment in order to create a highly efficient data center, need to verify that their virtualized applications will work properly.
With the opening of Great Lakes Computer’s new hardware & software benchmarking facility, those wanting to validate applications on a certain platform now have total access to a dizzying array of current and legacy custom configured Cisco, Dell, HP, IBM, Juniper and Sun servers, storage products and accessories. Additionally, Great Lakes Computer can work with corporations to test the functionality of their applications in a virtual environment before they commit to a shift in IT infrastructure strategies.
“We’ve always had a very active computer rental business. As we dug a little deeper, it turns out most of our customer's renting computer equipment needed to test applications on hardware that mirrored their production environment. With our unique combination of an on-site technical support staff, a huge inventory and a world class technical center, opening our application testing facility was the next logical step. We’ve effectively eliminated the need to purchase costly test beds for application testing.”
Located 5 miles from the Gerald R Ford International airport in Grand Rapids, Michigan, customers from all over the world can come on site and perform tests on their own, or they can turn the entire project over to an on-site technical staff. Once the technical requirements have been established, Great Lakes Computer technicians will integrate and test the hardware components, provide power, network and internet access, all in a private dedicated facility. You will also be assigned a dedicated technologist to provide technical and logistical support. The goal is to provide a comfortable setting in which customers can quickly and easily complete their projects and certify their applications.
