I’m happy to announce the availability of 10 new Windows 10 virtual labs so you can get hands-on experience with Windows as a service, Windows security technologies, and new deployment scenarios before you do a full-scale rollout in your organization. These labs have been specifically designed to address your feedback regarding top deployment blockers and how-to training on new Windows 10 features, such as Credential Guard.
Virtual labs let you try out Windows 10 setup, deployment, and management scenarios using a cloud-based private virtual machine environment. Each lab features a series of instructions, and access to one or more virtual machines, with no additional software or setup required—enabling you to jump right in and get started with common tasks and customizations.
