Duncan Epping posted today in his personal blog that VMware opened a new Hosted Beta Program, based on the same technologies used for the Hands-On Labs (HOL) at VMworld, that allows registered users to try VMware’s products in pre-build online Lab environments supported with guided workflows.
As Duncan says:
.. without the need to build-out infrastructure onsite ..
.. is a great opportunity to test-drive products and provide VMware with your feedback on the features still under development. On top of that this will allow you to spend 1-2 hour blocks to get acquainted with new technology, without the need to be on-site. You can do this at the office, or at home with just a connection to the internet.
