Azure Dev Test Labs

Official Microsoft description:

“Azure DevTest Lab is a service that helps developers and testers to quickly create environments in Azure while minimizing waste and controlling cost. You can test latest version of your application by quickly provisioning Windows and Linux environments using reusable templates and artifacts.”

In other words, Azure DevTest Labs is a great service that will help you to implement DevOps in your organization. Azure DevTest Labs will allows you to easily deploy Virtual Machines in order to test your workload in Azure. Setting up a development and test environment can take lots of time for your Ops Team. Let’s imagine that you have developers that want to be able to test their application using the latest version of SQL Server. You must:

  1. Deploy the VM
  2. Configure the VM
  3. Test the VM
  4. Configure RBAC
  5. Send the VM information with credentials to the Dev Team
  6. Check with the Dev Team if everything is ok
  7. If not, you must reconfigure the VM
  8. Check once again with the Dev Team

And so on…
