QualiSystems Offers New Customers Effortless Migration to TestShell Lab Management Solution

January 8, 2013

SANTA CLARA, California, January 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

QualiSystems [http://www.qualisystems.com ] is pleased to announce it has successfully
achieved automatic migration capabilities enabling customers to replace in-place Gale
Technologies Lab Manager test automation platforms with QualiSystems’ TestShell enterprise
software framework seamlessly. The automatic migration is in addition to the standard
migration already performed by QualiSystems. The recent end-of-life product announcement
by Gale Technologies and the acquisition of Gale by Dell may be the impetus for Gale’s Lab
Manager storage-vendor customers to switch over to a more sustainable solution that will
deliver the best process for test and lab performance.

The transition from Gale’s Lab Manager to QualiSystems TestShell is necessary for
customers in order to maintain and expand on needed functionality to support and leverage
a vast array of devices and gain the best results possible. The changeover process
includes a complete end-to-end replacement of the customer’s lab management suite
including devices, layer-1 physical switches, and any network equipment and storage
devices that are being used. Automated migration allows for a timely immediate transition,
resulting in the best test and lab automation platform available.

QualiSystems’ TestShell will optimize lab performance due to its superior networking
and storage lab management features, including built-in support, device inventory and
scheduling, and capabilities for dragging-and-dropping required resources into the
topology diagrams. Moreover, using the holistic test automation framework engineers gain
the ability to define abstract resources in the system and match actual ones when required
on their own without involving code developers.

QualiSystems’ TestShell provides complete lab management and device provisioning
resulting in an increase in testing coverage and increased equipment utilization. Using
this software framework leads to improved product quality, a shortened time to market and
significantly reduced capital and operational expenditures. TestShell also permits lab
testing teams to continuously work on any existing reservations without disruption while
the migration is taking place. This includes creating new reservations, keeping
pre-existing topologies and maintaining a complete outlook on all reservation activities.

“Customers who previously used Gale’s Lab Manager Solution will find it easy to make
the transition because of the continuity with TestShell, both in terms of functionality
and sustainability,” says Assaf Lev, vice president of delivery at QualiSystems. “Now that
Dell has purchased Gale, some existing customers may be Dell competitors unwilling to use
a Gale product. QualiSystems offers an alternative that surpasses the Lab Manager’s
capabilities and provides customers with the best available outcomes. Like our customers,
we are very pleased with the automated migration process and the results realized.”
