Calgary, Alberta (PRWEB) December 19, 2013
Hatsize, the leading provider of global cloud-based training labs for software and hardware products, today launched Hatsize 4.1, the latest release of their flagship cloud-based training lab platform, which includes groundbreaking HTML5 support, virtual classroom integration, international keyboard support, a new portal user interface, and cut and paste support to virtual machines.
Hatsize 4.1 was designed based on customer feedback and to address the industry-wide browser plug-in issue. Plug-ins such as Java, Flash and ActiveX present both security and usability issues, which is why both Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers plan to stop supporting plug-ins for their browsers within the next year.
With the emergence of HTML5, there is a new and better way for browsers to deliver multimedia content to users. Hatsize is one of the first training lab providers to leverage the power of this new web standard, revolutionizing the student and instructor experience.
HTML5 is Important for Training Labs
HTML5 is critically important for training labs because it enables delivery to any HTML5 enabled browser and to any HTML5 enabled mobile device. Mobile training is becoming increasingly important and with HTML5, training labs can now be delivered to mobile devices including tablets.
In addition, HTML5 is particularly useful for training labs because students need very rich multimedia content to ensure a high quality training experience. With Hatsize 4.1, HTML5 is fully integrated so students can get install-free, one-click access to their virtual training labs. Hatsize clients now have the ability to choose how they want to access their lab environments.
“The response to Hatsize 4.1 has been phenomenal,” said Guy Hummel, Hatsize CEO. “Our customers are extremely interested in adopting the HTML5 client, international keyboard support and virtual classroom integration capabilities.”
New features in Hatsize 4.1 include the following:
Additional benefits include an on screen keyboard for entering special key combinations such as control-alt-delete and install-free, one-click access from thumbnails to different systems within their training labs. Note: Hatsize’s HTML5 Client supports RFB and RDP protocols.

As a cloud service, Hatsize has successfully delivered over 2 million hours of hands-on training sessions for some of the world’s fastest growing technology and training organizations including Symantec, Juniper Networks, New Horizons, MicroTek, and Palo Alto Networks.
