Azure DevTest Labs is being expanded with new types of Labs!
We are adding managed lab types for classroom and trial labs. You can find them in preview here. Once preview ends, we will bring the new lab types and DevTest Labs under the new common umbrella name of Azure Lab Services where all lab types will continue to evolve.
"Since using Azure DevTest Labs, we’ve seen our developer onboarding process drop from weeks to hours. We just send developers a link, and they get instant access to Azure Virtual Machines, Microsoft Visual Studio Team Services, and needed open-source tools."
"It used to take us six months to a year to develop a new offering for a customer, but now that we do this work in Azure DevTest Labs, we can respond in a few weeks."
"Our customers demand the highest levels of data encryption and application and infrastructure security. From the day we launched, we’ve taken advantage of the enterprise-grade security features built into the Azure platform to help provide the level of security our customers expect…"
"As a team, we’re focused on high-quality solutions and speed. Choosing Azure was a very transformative decision for us."
"By using Azure for dev/test, we get predictable costs and pay for the resources by the hour. By comparison, it can take a month to get dev/test hardware provisioned on premises, and that's assuming you have the datacenter space."
