Hey TLG and Office Server 2013 fans,

Cloud products like Office 365 and Windows Azure have gotten a lot of attention recently as organizations see the savings of time and money they can offer. As a result, we’ve begun to publish new Test Lab Guides (TLGs) that set you on course to understand how cloud workloads can fit with your existing environment.

For example, we recently published Configuring the Windows Server 2012 Base Configuration Test Lab for Public Cloud Technologies to show you how to set up an on-premises environment that’s ready for public cloud integration.

Now, we’ve built on this TLG with another that shows you how to set up a trial Office 365 subscription: Configuring an Office 365 Trial Subscription. This new TLG uses a fictional Microsoft account and company and the on-premises base configuration test lab to set up a working trail subscription for Office 365 ProPlus, which includes Exchange Online, Lync Online, and SharePoint Online.

If you are evaluating Office 365 or Office 365 ProPlus for your business, take a look at this new TLG and give it a try. Note that this trial subscription is based on a fictional account and company and should not be used to Fast Track to a pilot or production configuration of Office 365.
