AppLabs Named EMC Centera Certification Partner
AppLabs Technologies, a global IT services company specializing in quality management, testing, and certification solutions, today announced that EMC Corporation has selected AppLabs as its testing provider for the EMC® Centera™ Proven Certification Program. EMC selected AppLabs for its extensive certification expertise and its commitment to achieving, following and maintaining the industries highest level of process standards.
“The EMC Centera Proven Certification Program helps both our ISV partners and customers focus their time and resources on solving business issues rather than technical integration challenges,” said Chuck Hollis, EMC Vice President of Technology Alliances. “By working with AppLabs, EMC and its partners are able to provide customers with assurances that solutions have been independently tested and validated for interoperability and functionality.”
EMC Centera provides a simple, scalable, secure storage solution for cost-effective retention, protection, and disposition of a wide range of fixed content. The EMC Centera Proven Certification Program is aimed at helping customers more efficiently deploy EMC Centera content addressed storage (CAS) with applications from independent software vendors (ISVs).
Testing concentrates on hardware and software setup, basic EMC Centera capabilities including replication, disaster recovery and offsite backup, compliance and retention, single-instance storage, capacity reporting, technical support, and overall application efficiency.
EMC Centera's open application programming interface (API) is supported by more than 400 partners, resellers and many of the world's leading ISVs. ISVs with applications that achieve EMC Centera Certification through AppLabs can help their customers realize a number of benefits including faster application deployments and support cost savings.
The Certification Testing will be conducted in AppLabs’ Lindon, Utah testing facility. AppLabs conducts Certification testing for companies such as Cisco, SpectraLink, SUN, TrustE, and Novell. AppLabs is CMMI Level 5 certified, and has ISO 9001-2000 and BS 7799 certification.
