ULINK has set the standard in testing for the storage industry and helped in reducing the time-to-market for products in the storage industry. One challenge it faced in doing so was the high risk of errors and time involved in managing and analyzing storage drive test results. Its invention of ULINK Test Reporter solved these pain points.
Features and Benefits
ULINK Test Reporter is designed for organizing the test results of storage devices such as hard disk drives (HDDs) and solid-state drives (SSDs). For storage manufacturers and system integrators, this service can create a test database, examine test results, and compare the test results for quality assurance.
ULINK Test Reporter streamlines the drive testing process by neatly organizing test results. It has a database-oriented system to collect, analyze, and report real-time test results. Its web-based test system allows users to monitor the test results at ULINK’s Test Reporter Website. It comes with a utility to show test results, test logs, and test status (pass/fail). Users can compare several test results with just a few clicks.
It is suitable for test labs as well as individual test engineers to collect and analyze drive test results. Storage R&D teams can easily retrieve and compare the test results of different hardware and firmware versions. Test engineers can easily access the summary of tests on their desktop screens.
Since tests are collected and stored in a database, ULINK Test Reporter encourages a quick but careful analysis of test results between different product versions, leading to better control. By doing so, it overcomes the challenges of managing multiple drive test results.
