Every time Microsoft launches a new Windows Server version some people get excited to try the new features. But while some folks love getting their hands dirty setting up new servers, storage, cables, etc., not everyone has a lot of time to do this.

With the new virtual labs for Windows Server 2016, Microsoft made it a lot quicker and easier for you to get your hands dirty on the fun part!

Yesterday Microsoft announced the availability of the new Windows Server 2016 virtual labs. These TechNet Virtual Labs provide a real-world environment along with guidance on how to try the new features. Here are the new lab scenarios you can try out:

  • Implementing Breach Resistance Security in Windows Server 2016
  • Shielded Virtual Machines
  • Building a Storage Infrastructure on Windows Server 2016
  • Installing and Managing Nano Server
  • Exploring Virtualization on Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016
  • Failover Clustering and Rolling Cluster Upgrades

Sign in with your Microsoft account, and you can access any of the individual labs in a private, sandboxed environment. It all adds up to about six hours of content, and you can come back later if you need to.

Give these new virtual labs a try. And when you are ready to dig even deeper and evaluate the full product, you can download the Windows Server 2016 evaluation media or try it in Azure.
