VMware Hands-on Labs VMworld Hands-on Labs

New 2017 VMware Hands-on Labs Released!

Today we are releasing labs from the VMware Hands-on Labs 2017 Catalog.  These labs were first released at VMworld US in Las Vegas and are now available to you!


While we won’t be releasing all the labs in the catalog just yet, we did need to release some of them for upcoming events, like SociaLabs.  If you haven’t heard of or attended a SociaLab, you are missing out on a great opportunity to connect with experts outside of the Hands-on Labs at VMworld.  Visit the SociaLab page to find event near you!

The remaining labs will be released after VMworld Europe in Barcelona.  As a reminder, when we add a new 2017 lab, the corresponding 2016 lab will retired to the HOL Archives catalog, where it will eventually be decommissioned on December 1st, 2016.


You can review my previous post to see which lab(s) will be retired when a new a lab is made available, where to find the older lab and what to watch out for.

Without further delay, here are the new labs available for you!  You can click on the lab SKU link to be taken directly to the lab entry and start taking the lab.  Also, you can download any of the lab manuals from the Hands-on Labs Document site!
