Interested in Azure Lab Services? Get started with a few steps

Azure Lab Services enables you to quickly set up an environment for your team in the cloud. A lab owner creates a lab, provisions Windows or Linux virtual machines, installs the necessary software and tools and makes them available to lab users. Lab users connect to virtual machines (VMs) in the lab and use them for their day-to-day work, short-term projects or for doing classroom exercises.
