Gain hands-on experience with the new version of Windows Server in security, software-defined datacenter and containers, using the latest virtual labs.

Guided labs make it easy to check out what’s new without spending time and money to install and configure an environment. Using the virtual labs for Windows Server 2016 you can learn about what the new technology does and how to configure it. It’s not a video, a demo you watch, or a simulator; it’s you connecting with your browser, on your PC, to our lab for free.

When you sign in with your Microsoft account you’ll be able to access any of the individual labs in a private, sandboxed environment. It all adds up to about 6 hours of content, and you can come back later if you need to.

Check out each of these 60-minute experiences:

  • Breach resistant security and Shielded VMs
  • Storage Spaces Direct
  • Nano Server
  • Windows Server and Hyper-V Containers
  • Failover clustering and rolling cluster upgrades

VirtualLabs

Cloud computing is happening. It is being driven by the exponential growth in modern applications, data and devices. These trends require organizations to quickly scale and deliver continuous services. Simultaneously, innovation is happening across storage, network and compute technologies. With these new requirements and innovations, IT is under pressure to deliver capacity on demand, whether for short-term projects or longer-term initiatives. At the same time, organizations have higher expectations for service levels – services must be always up, always on, with no planned or unplanned downtime. To meet these challenges, a new modern platform is required. In the era of cloud computing, Microsoft delivers this with the Cloud OS. The Cloud OS takes on a broader role than just managing a server. Microsoft’s vision for the Cloud OS is focused on the transformation of the datacenter, enabling modern applications, unlocking insights on any data and empowering people-centric IT.

The Cloud OS requires a comprehensive execution of vision crossing a wide range of enterprise technologies, including Microsoft Azure, SQL Server, System Center and Windows Server.

Fundamental to the modern datacenter, is the ability to build private cloud infrastructures and quickly scale within the datacenter as well as agile and secure consumption of Windows Azure and service provider cloud capacity.

With Microsoft Windows Azure Pack for Windows Server you can transform your datacenter in private Cloud computing. To see and learn more about WAPack you can run Virtual LABS Online here
