Data centre lock demonstration kit for exploration and evaluation

In many cases, there is no real choice to a physical, hands-on demonstration or test run. The innovative EMKA Biolock system for server racking is one example – so to facilitate interested data centre security engineers to see for themselves – the company has produced a demo-in-a-case that can be sent out on request.

Viewing a system demonstrated is one thing, operating a system as a client is often another. This new kit allows a potential user to see and operate and enables EMKA to provide a follow-up system optimally tailored to the client's needs after the demonstration.

The demonstration kit is supplied complete with hardware as decided upon through the initial consultation and is housed within a heavy-duty aluminium case, with a laptop that includes the user software with the demo system already registered onto it. All that remains to be accomplished is for the client to add some users and get used to it.

The kit also offers an opportunity for the client to get to see not just the software but the hardware and how they combine into the anticipated installation.

The 'demo-in-a-case' approach facilitates the benefits of face-to-face working, which provides for complete interaction with software and hardware with On-Line operation, which has its benefits such as screen sharing and control of the system by the host, allowing the client to control the software and hardware in the same way as they would remotely when deployed in the field.
