Mobile Labs Introduces deviceConnect Hosted Cloud
February 27, 2017

Mobile Labs' deviceConnect mobile device cloud is now being hosted and managed by Mobile Labs in the company’s secure data centers.

Customers now have a choice -- have Mobile Labs manage deviceConnect in a Mobile Labs data center, or install deviceConnect on their own premises. Either type of installation is supported by Mobile Labs’ industry-leading customer support and customer success teams.

“We believe our new hosted cloud appeals to customers who want Mobile Labs’ experts to manage the infrastructure and day-to-day functioning of their mobile device clouds -- freeing more resources to focus on delivering world-class apps,” said Dan McFall, President of Mobile Labs.

As part of the hosted service, Mobile Labs will purchase, configure, install, and maintain the customer’s inventory of smartphones and tablets.

“To efficiently deploy mobile app and mobile web as the face of enterprise digital transformation, customers can now choose the cloud type that is right for them. Our hosted cloud extends our determination to meet customer teams ‘where they live,’ accelerating deployment and support of world-class mobile apps,” continued McFall.

The hosted mobile device cloud offers customers an exclusive, dedicated deviceConnect server that distinguishes the offering from other, public-type clouds. Rather than merely providing unmetered access to devices otherwise available to the general public, or simply offering a dedicated device taken from a general, public pool, Mobile Labs believes enterprises will be attracted to the Mobile Labs’ difference.

“We are offering a dedicated, private cloud that is wired only to the customer’s devices and offers all the access control and management features of deviceConnect,” said Michael Ryan, Senior VP and CTO of Mobile Labs.

Enterprises interested in secure mobile development and testing benefit from the full range of deviceConnect’s user and app management, device control, and auditing capabilities whether they choose a private, managed device cloud in a Mobile Labs data center or one installed on their own premises.

“We believe both of our offerings – hosted and on-premises – fill important roles, depending on needs and priorities,” continued McFall. The deviceConnect on-premises cloud remains a popular choice for enterprises who want the network performance offered by their own high-speed LANS, who want the ultimate in cloud isolation and local control, or who want hands-on access to their devices from time to time. “Our new hosted offering appeals to teams who need instant infrastructure, want to have Mobile Labs obtain and manage devices and software, or who have rapidly-changing teams and projects,” said Ryan.

The deviceConnect hosted cloud is available immediately as a service through the Mobile Labs’ sales team. Each private, dedicated cloud supports the newest generations of Android and iOS smartphones and tablets, and customers can be up and running in a matter of hours.

“We want the distinguishing feature of our hosted cloud to be the speed with which we can complete a transaction and get the customer up and running, with our experts there to ensure success,” said McFall.
