The Leanides V2R Lab Station leverages the capability of the virtual hosting environment (VMWare Workstation Pro) to provide a suite of functions that will empower the user to do more in a network lab environment. The functionality that it provides goes above and beyond that provided by a TFTP server and it is faster and more intuitive to use. As virtualisation can now be run on most laptops, the time has come to adopt new and better ways to manage the network lab environment.
Whether you are doing Cisco study labs or setting up a test lab environment and bench testing your configs, the Leanides V2R Lab Station will enable you to turn your laptop into a powerful Cisco lab tool that will help you get the most out of your Cisco labs.
1.Cisco Labs Study Preperation
The V2R Lab Station has a high performance automation engine that enables you to store all of the physical Cisco device labs that you ever do. You can quickly and easily roll them out again at any time. You can also integrate the Lab Station with GNS3 and transfer you Cisco device configs between virtual and real Cisco devices.
2. Cisco Lab Development Environment
The exclusive features of the V2R Lab Station make it perfect for setting up a Lab testing environment to test your Cisco device configs. You can backup, restore by zero provisioning or rollback your Cisco device configs and you can also store and easily deploy thousands of your config change scripts from a central point of control.
3. Enterprise Network Training and Experience
All too often students and graduates are told that they cannot get a job because they don’t have the necessary workplace experience. The V2R Lab Station allows you to setup your own network and run config changes, backups and perform zero provisioning just as if you were managing a large enterprise network. By providing a simulated large enterprise network management experience, you have a better idea of what to expect when you are working in a real large enterprise network environment. You also get experience with VM server network configuration in the deployment and usage of the V2R Lab Station and will learn a lot from doing that. Next time that you are in an interview you can tell the employer that you trained yourself this way and you demonstrate your ability to take charge of the situation with proactive engagement in practical learning activities.
4. A Definitive form of Notation for Cisco Configs and Change Scripts
The USB import/export features of the V2R Lab Station facilitate the sharing of Cisco device configs in a format that enables them to be easily applied or redeployed by others in their Cisco Lab environment. All your Cisco Lab configs and config (conf t) change scripts can be loaded to a USB storage device and are contained in the one folder for easy sharing with others by internet sharing on website posts or email.
