Windows Server 2012 Virtual Labs

Posted by Jonas

I came across this website listing a total of 16 new Virtual Labs focusing on Windows Server 2012, primarily the new features included..

  • Active Directory Deployment and Management Enhancements
  • Configuring a Highly Available iSCSI Target
  • Configuring Hyper-V over Highly Available SMB Storage
  • Getting Started with Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Replication
  • Implementing Storage Pools and Storage Spaces
  • Introduction to DirectAccess in Windows Server 2012
  • Introduction to IIS 8
  • Introduction to iSCSI Diskless Boot Deployment
  • Introduction to Windows PowerShell Fundamentals
  • What’s New in Windows PowerShell 3.0
  • Managing Branch Offices
  • Managing Network Infrastructure
  • Managing Windows Server 2012 with Server Manager and Windows PowerShell 3.0
  • Managing Your Network Infrastructure with IP Address Management
  • Online Backup Service
  • Using Dynamic Access Control to Automatically and Centrally Secure Data

Just did the first one about AD Deployment and Management Enhancments – it seems to be much better than the ‘old’ Virtual Labs.. The performance is much much better than the ones I’ve tried on Exchange 2010, Lync 2010 and Server 2008 R2..

New to these labs is an Exercise called “Challange” where you have to complete a scenario but completing a few tasks “on your own”.

Nothing beats setting up the servers by yourself in your own lab environment, but this comes pretty close 🙂
