I wanted to mention another excellent online resource to you for learning virtualization and that is Microsoft’s Virtual Labs. We try our best to bring you the best virtualization resources possible (see our post about using VMWare GO service to implement VMWare VSphere). Microsoft provides several resources to learn Hyper-V (its baremetal virtualization hypervisor) as well as various enterprise grade virtualization solutions. As per Microsoft “Virtual Labs enable you to quickly evaluate and test products and technologies through a series of guided, hands-on labs that you can complete in 90 minutes or less. There is no complex setup or installation required, and you can use TechNet Virtual Labs online immediately, free.”
