What is ODL™?
ODL (On Demand Laptop) is a dynamic end-user cloud provider agnostic engineered computing resource available on demand, custom configured per individual or organization need, that enables access to enterprise applications on premises or cloud based applications seamlessly, they are used by IT professionals, consultants, systems integrators, students, professors and employees.
For Students – students have lab work as part of their curriculum and often need to get their lab work done. Access to labs, time, software installations and configurations, their OS platforms, laptop memory and storage, student edition software licenses could all be a challenge especially when it comes to doing their assignments for their classes in a given quarter. With a single click ODL™ comes ready to go solution with zero conflict with your laptops and can be accessed from anywhere. You get the performance, speed, compute power and storage – all elastic in nature comparable to a high end server!
This opens up possibilities for students to explore, extend and continue with their lab work or try new possibilities with on a varied platforms thus leading to innovation of new ideas and software products and applications.
For the Professors – in sciences and engineering always have to deal with lab work for their students and are often limited by what their internal IT can offer. Therefore, lab time is often limited, reused and constrained by availability. Professors engaged in research and development is also constrained by storage and availability of servers for their specific need. With CAPS™ all of these challenges are mitigated. An exclusive ODL™ for the professors not only enables them the grant access to their students when needed, but can also monitor usage, storage and implement security to any extent required.
For C-Level Decision Makers – ODL™ is an ideal choice to reduce CAPEX and OPEX. ROI on ODL™ is very high and risks are greatly reduced. Utility mode compute platform that ODL™ delivers is both cost effective and quality sustained thus helping your IT to deliver more with less. The key decision makers in business and IT should not be thinking too much about how a technology solution need to be development, managed and implement, rather consider, what value they could leverage from an IT solution that is rapid and cost effective. With ODL™ already pre-configured with enterprise software and applications, the tasks left for IT is only to develop their solution or do the same as a service through Step Ahead’s Hybrid IT Services. ODL™ are a fabulous way to explore, prototype and validate new software.
