VMware announced a new training offer for attendees of VMware classroom courses. After completing the course, students are able to use a training lab environment hosted in the cloud for 30 active hours or 30 days. This enables them to learn and digest the information in the course at their own pace and comfort.
The lab is available initially for USA students who attend a VMware-delivered VMware vSphere: Fast Track [5.0] or VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [5.x] class.
Europe, Asia Pacific, and Japan expect to release VMware Lab Connect in Q1 2013.
