How To Create A New Azure DevTest Lab

One of the big selling points of the cloud is the ability to spin entire environments up, and tear them down again, on demand. We all understand this benefit, but how do you go about capitalizing on it? Are you going to have to develop complicated PowerShell scripts that only you understand? And once your environment is running, will your team members need pages of instructions to get connected and using it?

And what if you want to empower your developers with a self-service environment, how can you make sure they don’t spin up the largest virtual machines possible (just because they think they need it)?

In this snip, Josh demonstrates how to create an Azure DevTest lab where you will be able to easily spin up multiple VMs, manage them as a group, and apply limits and quotas to manage costs.
