StorTech has opened its EMC Velocity2 Signature Solution Centre, designed to demonstrate the value its solutions can offer customers.

The centre demonstrates how the technology works in a live environment, providing a total experience of the solution and the benefits it would provide with no risk for the customer.
Based on the success of EMC’s own Global Solution Centres, StorTech Solution Centre replicates a framework of technology that demonstrates EMC Proven solutions in an approved environment.
The first solution to be showcased is the EMC Proven solution for virtualised Microsoft Exchange Environments, designed to reduce management complexity and costs at every stage of the e-mail lifecycle while managing rapid e-mail volume growth.
“We are giving our customers real choice and the best of both worlds – the chance to see exactly how the Proven™ solution would work for them based on EMC technology, without them having to commit any money at all,” says Tim Knowles, CEO of StorTech.
The Solution Centre is designed to host a number of activities, including:
* Customer briefings, seminars and workshops;
* Showcase live demonstrations of hardware and software;
* Training;
* Execute complex proof-of-concept;
* Migration planning;
* Benchmark and performance testing; and
* Comprehensive solution development.
The centre will also provide solutions development, live and remote demonstrations and development of near-customer environments via EMC’s Customer Integration Lab.
