This past week Brian Lewis has been working on building a student lab in Azure. The idea is that as students can work on a Windows Server labs with their own preconfigured lab and for free. The way to accomplish this is to have each student register for their own free 90 day Azure trial and then copy over the pre created virtual servers.
This is a great way to get hands on experience with Azure, while also creating a lab environment that is accessible for any many where you have an Internet connection!
Brian discusses Azure Storage, why passwords still suck, and how easy it is to put all of this together. Check out his blog post here -
