Today I am happy to share with you that we released our updated hands-on-labs to our public portal.
On www.microsoft.com/sqlserverlabs you’ll find a set of pre-configured hands-on-labs that will allow you to get your hands dirty on the latest and greatest technology and features in SQL Server 2012.
The nice thing about our labs is that the only thing you really need to run is a browser (Internet Explorer, ActiveX enabled).
Instantly after launching a lab, a hands-on-lab manual will provide guidance to walk through the set of Virtual Machines that are preconfigured for these tasks.
Just image the capabilities for a second, anything that you would like to try with SQL Server is basically possible in our configuration.
Below is a list of labs that we released to our public portal:
