Award-winning RadControls suite facilitates assimilation, jumpstarts solution with fully integrated controls
WALTHAM, MA, DECEMBER 06, 2010 – Telerik, a provider of end-to-end solutions for the software development lifecycle, today announced that its RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX user interface (UI) controls has enabled LabSlice to deploy its Virtual Lab Management application 90 days ahead of schedule.
The LabSlice Virtual Lab Management solution is built on top of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) operated by Amazon Web Services™. It extends the Amazon cloud to create a self-service, policy controlled and shareable cloud environment, enabling physical systems to be swapped with machines pulled directly from Amazon EC2, improving cost-avoidance, lowering risk and increasing productivity. Deploying Telerik’s RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX shaved 90 days off its development schedule, bringing the application to market much earlier than expected.
“In order to rapidly deliver a top-of-the-line solution, we sought out the most robust toolset that would fit seamlessly into our ASP.NET AJAX development environment,” said Simon Ellis, Chief Technology Officer of LabSlice. “Telerik’s RadControls provided excellent controls for grid manipulation, ajaxification of the interface and Windows management, along with an amazing support program - it was exactly what we needed to jumpstart our applications’ development and deliver our solution months earlier than expected.”
Telerik RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX includes more than 70 controls with proven reliability that helps companies build high-quality, professional line of business web applications. For LabSlice, the toolkit enabled its developers to build a sleek customer-facing web interface, featuring consistent UI elements backed by rich functionality. The suite’s out-of-the-box operation and wide variety of pre-made themes spared the team from spending time on extensive customizations and typical challenges of browser-based UI programming, allowing a greater focus on development of key product features.
“LabSlice’s Virtual Lab Management is an incredible technology for sales engineers and IT professionals who are seeking an affordable and scalable cloud computing infrastructure, with features and functionality to bring it to life quickly and seamlessly,” said Svetozar Georgiev, CEO of Telerik. “By deploying an array of our ASP.NET AJAX components such as RadGrid, RadRotator, RadWindows, and RadAjax, LabSlice was able to simplify and accelerate the development process, thereby expediting the solution’s deployment and maximizing its competitive advantage.”
Underscoring its success, in November of this year the LabSlice Virtual Lab Management application was named a regional semi-finalist for Asia in the Amazon Web Service Start-Up Challenge. The judges evaluated entrants from around the world based on scalability, functionality, deployment, management teams and the overall use of AWS.
