Virtual IT LabsDeliver customized training with Virtual Hands-on Labs
Unlike other virtual labs solutions—or trying to build your own using public cloud platforms—Skytap frees you to focus on the curricula instead of worrying about complicated backend infrastructure.
Easily create complex, multi-host training labs that can simulate virtually any real-world experience or replicate customer environments.
Flexibility and choice
Each Skytap environment is a software-defined datacenter (SDDC) supporting a wide range of configurations, including Linux and Windows running on x86, AIX, IBM i, and Linux running on IBM Power. Including complex Layer 2 and Layer 3 network requirements.
Self-service at scale
Build, update, and retire virtual labs in minutes. No more having to wait on vendors or release cycles to keep training experiences in line with frequent product changes.
Vast library of templates
Every virtual lab environment starts with one-or-more virtual machines (VMs). Skytap offers pre-built machine templates to get started and one-click saving of custom templates to speed up courseware development.
Outstanding performance, anytime and anywhere
Because Skytap is 100% cloud-based with global availability, it takes no time to spin-up a new student lab environment, no matter how many are required.
Orchestrated and integrated
Whether instructor-led, on-demand self-paced labs, or demo environments, Skytap handles all of the orchestration to ensure environments are ready when needed and shut down when not. Skytap’s REST API, Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI), and Salesforce support integrate technical training labs into any experience.
Cost-effective without being ineffective
Set policies to suspend or delete unused virtual labs automatically to limit spend without impacting outcomes. Pay-as-you-go pricing keeps costs predictable without hampering the ability to meet demand. Robust reporting tracks usage and insight into the business value of virtual lab investments.
Ideal use cases
If your virtual training labs require frequent updates, complex configurations, or just need to scale to meet student or customer needs worldwide, look no further than Skytap.
