Test Drive

Welcome to GTS Test Drive!

Our Test Drive is an exciting environment that allows you to experience the cloud for yourself.

The ride will give you an opportunity to quickly create your own cloud computing environment in just 5 minutes and control the different pool of resources.





What can you do?

You can login and build a new virtual server from scratch or utilize one of our preconfigured servers that can be modified to your needs. Once the virtual environment is built, login to the virtual machine’s operating system remotely and test the cloud resources. Try it and see how flexible and agile cloud computing resources can be.

What can't you do?

For security reasons, the Test Drive environment does not have Internet access and does not allow you to install applications.
If you would like to test a fully functional solution that is tuned to your requirements, please contact us and we will build your desired cloud.
