Stratoscale, the software platform for hyper-converged infrastructure, today announced its solution is being made available to customers and developers via a TestDrive program. Interested users can go to http://www.stratoscale.com/testdrive to register for the program and have the choice of experiencing the Stratoscale solution on their own hardware by downloading, or making use of Stratoscale’s own cloud environment. The TestDrive program comes on the heels of Stratoscale’s recent “OpenStack Powered” announcements and is leading up to product launch later this summer.
“We are committed to delivering what the market wants and we wanted to get it out fast,” said Stratoscale founder and CEO Ariel Maislos. “Application developers, cloud architects and infrastructure managers need time to fully absorb the groundbreaking solution we have developed. We wanted to let the world try us out even before our product launch.”
