Lab Rental Process Overview...
  1. Call us to determine your lab needs.
  2. Schedule your lab reservation.
  3. We connect and provision your hardware host, storage and network resources so they are ready when your rental period begins.
  4. Once your rental period begins, you can access the hosts directly through an iLO console session.
  5. You then connect your OS ISO media to your iLO session and begin to install and configure your lab.
  6. Once your OS is configured, if you want, you can let us know you are ready for RDP or VNC access and we'll configure it for you.

Rental iSCSI and NFS Shared Storage
Have iSCSI and NFS shared storage presented to your physical server rentals to create Windows or Vmware clustered environments or just add extra drive space to a server and learn how iSCSI and NFS works.  The storage platform we use supports SCSI-3 persistent reservations which allow for Windows clustering and Vmware Vsphere 5 clustering.   
  • You can have 25, 50, 100, 250 and 500 GB LUNs created and presented to any of your rentals.

Rental Network
We use gigabit ethernet for both storage and client networks.  You can request to have up to 4 private, separate VLANs to use in your lab.  The seperate VLANs allow for Vmware labs to have separate Management, vMotion, storage, Fault Tolerance and heartbeat networks for best practice.  The same applies for clustered Windows labs. 
  • Gigabit ethernet
  • Up to 4 separate VLANs
