Today we are releasing the last of the VMware authored Hands-on Labs from VMworld. These four labs focus on Hybrid Cloud, Big Data and Software Development. The Hybrid Cloud and Big Data labs are updates from last year and continue to build off of great content. Their 2013 counterparts will be moved to the HOL Archives catalog. The SDK lab is new for this year and if you are interested in building Cloud Infrastructure Solutions with VMware Development Tools and SDK’s, this is a great introductory lab.

Again, these are the last of the VMware authored labs from VMworld. Stay tuned! Next week we will start rolling out the Partner labs. Just to clear up any misconceptions, Partner labs are not just for Partners, rather they are authored by our Partners and available for anyone to take. They showcase their products and how they integrate with VMware technology. We had our best year yet with the Partner labs this year, so be sure to check back next week!
