Test Lab Guides
Topic Last Modified: 2016-06-30
Summary: Use these cloud adoption Test Lab Guides (TLGs) to set up dev/test environments for Office 365 and Office Server products.
Test Lab Guides (TLGs) help you quickly learn about Microsoft products. They’re great for situations where you need to evaluate a technology before you decide whether it’s right for you or before you roll it out to users. This important, "I built it out myself, and it works" hands-on experience helps you understand the deployment requirements of a new product or solution so you can better plan for hosting it in production.
TLGs also allow you to create representative environments for development and testing of applications, also known as dev/test environments.
The following Microsoft Cloud Adoption TLGs are available:
Create an Office 365 dev/test environment consisting of an Office 365 E5 trial subscription, which you can do from your computer or from a simplified intranet running in Microsoft Azure infrastructure services.
