Microsoft: for academic use

Practice makes perfect and builds confidence too. All our Microsoft Practice Labs and Exam Preps are aligned with the relevant Microsoft course content and associated exams, so your students are sure to be well prepared before testing or certification.

Our content can be accessed 24/7 via web browser or through your Learning Management System. It takes minutes to set up and saves you the job of building and maintaining your own live-lab environment (we know first-hand just how resource-heavy and time consuming that can be!).

Our Microsoft Practice Lab Environment consists of pre-configured real Microsoft hardware and software, hosted in the cloud and available via a web browser or integrated into a learning management system (LMS). Accompanying lab guides are available to step users through multiple exercises and tasks or, alternatively, individual or multi Microsoft devices (as shown in the centre panel in the image below) can be fired up as required to recreate a sandbox-style environment for freestyle experimentation.

Microsoft: for IT departments

For IT engineers, it can be a challenge keeping systems updated and secure. Our live hosted Microsoft environment is set up to emulate real-world configurations. IT pros can gain access to the desktop of each server and have complete control to implement, test and adjust their own configurations – as many times as they like. Prior to applying changes to their workplace systems, access to our live-lab environment allows them to review and mitigate any impact beforehand.

Personal use customers
