KUALA LUMPUR: Avnet Solutions Centre (ASC), an open-source solutions testing facility, is now open. Located in Mutiara Damansara, Petaling Jaya, it is the result of a collaboration between Avnet Technology Solutions (M) Sdn Bhd and Red Hat Asia Pacific Pte Ltd.

The centre is equipped with servers, virtualised  machines and integration services — all designed for proof of concept activities, IT solution migration testing, training programmes and more.

To access the centre for free, companies have to become an Avnet or Red Hat business partner.
Cost and implementation are key challenges that often hinder local companies from adopting new technologies, said Chiew Ye Lam, Avnet Malaysia general manager.

“ASC addresses these concerns by allowing companies to test and select the right technology solutions for their IT requirements which reduces the risks associated with migration,” he said.

Apart from being physically present at the centre to conduct testing, partners can also “tunnel-in” to use the facilities remotely from the comfort of their office, he said.

By enabling remote access, ASC is able to support multiple business partners concurrently and each partner’s virtual login will be on a separate session for a security reasons, he added.
