So, you've heard about this three-headed beast on the horizon, which really is going to change the way we work, but you haven't had the chance to install it, don't have any spare hardware to test it on, or, you just don't want to install it yet.  What can you do?  Well, how about having a play around, hands-on style, without even having to install any of the products?

This is where the TechNet Virtual Labs come in.  They allow you to quickly evaluate and test Microsoft's newest server products through a series of guided, hands-on labs which can be completed in 90 minutes or less. The best part is, TechNet Virtual Labs can be accessed online immediately for FREE!

You can access the TechNet Virtual Labs homepage here.

Alternatively, follow these links for the relevant product labs:
