NETLAB+ Virtual Edition – Beta Release Now Available
Network Development Group (NDG), is pleased to announce the beta release of a new version of NETLAB+, designed to run as a virtual appliance within the VMware vSphere environment. This new, virtual edition of NETLAB+, NETLAB+ VE, marks a major change from the physical hardware version of NETLAB+ that has served hundreds of thousands of learners for the past 15 years. With an updated user interface and dockable windows, NETLAB+ VE has a fresh, new look and feel. Great new features, including a new PC viewer using HTML5 (replacing Java), help make the updated environment easier to use and more engaging.
We are currently offering NETLAB+ VE as a beta release to our existing customers. You will be offered the opportunity to run NETLAB+ VE in parallel with your existing NETLAB+ deployment for 12 months. Participation in the beta release is optional, but it’s the perfect way to get started for those of you who are excited about the new, virtual edition of NETLAB+.
