Hey current and future Azure fans,

I just published the Base Configuration in Azure TLG, in which the base configuration computers are running as Azure virtual machines in a cloud-only Azure Virtual Network named TestLab.

Now you can use a free trial subscription, your MSDN subscription, or your paid Azure subscription to build out the Corpnet subnet of the base configuration. Here is the configuration:

Like the public cloud base configuration, these computers have access to the Internet to automatically install updates, access Internet resources in real time, and participate in public cloud technologies such as Microsoft Office 365 and other Azure services.

Here is a short video that describes the lab build-out:

As you investigate your current or future plans to move parts of your IT infrastructure to the public cloud, this new base configuration is a great way to get hands-on experience managing virtual machines using the Azure Management Portal and Remote Desktop connections.

This is a very exciting development for the Test Lab Guides initiative as we enable and repurpose TLG content for the public cloud.

Enjoy!
