We are looking forward to an exciting VMworld 2014 and cannot wait to share the rest of the labs with you. Be sure to check in regularly at hol.vmware.com for the latest VMware Hands-on Labs news and features.
The wait is over. The VMware NSX for vSphere Lab (HOL-SDC-1303) has arrived. You consumed over 2,000 sessions of this lab, totaling 124,000 lab minutes during the four days of VMworld. That is roughly equivalent to locking yourself in a room with your laptop and doing nothing but take this lab 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for three months straight. Creepy . . . 🙂
We are bringing additional NSX content to the online portal as well as the remaining labs in the Mobility catalog. This is a big day of HOL goodness! Enjoy.
A Tech Preview of the exciting new VMware NSX for vSphere product announced at VMworld. Learn how VMware NSX virtualizes your network and simplifies your datacenter. This lab is currently based on a beta version of code and you may encounter some user interface issues during the lab exercises. The lab will be improved with newer code as the product moves closer to release. For now, brave the rapids, jump in with both feet and have a go at at VMware NSX, the premier solution for Network Virtualization.
VMware Horizon View is changing the way desktop computing is delivered. These use cases, drawn from real-world experience, clearly demonstrate the inherent value within the Horizon View solution. If you are curious as to what ways Horizon View is actually used today, this lab provides excellent examples.

Explore features of the vSphere Distributed Switch from beginning to advanced perspectives. There are modules that explore QoS and ERSPAN and others that provide a basic introduction to the vSphere Distributed Switch. If you want to explore vSphere networking, this is your lab.
The vSphere Performance lab is a perennial favorite and this year is no exception. There is content for all levels of expertise and multiple tracks through the lab. The optional modules at the end allow you to customize your lab experience around topics of interest to you. Be sure to take the lab more than once so that you can experience all of the modules.
VMware Virtual SAN pools compute and direct-attached storage resources and clusters server disks and flash to create resilient shared storage. This idea is so cool, you just have to see it in action!

VMware Horizon View is changing the way that companies manage their desktop systems. This lab includes a beginning-level guided tour module as well as advanced troubleshooting and optimization content. See what all of the buzz is about and try out Horizon View.
Over the next few weeks, we will continue a phased rollout of the 2013 VMware Hands-on Labs. With each release, be sure to take labs that you may have missed at VMworld or something outside of your core competency. We build these labs for you. It is our privilege to present them to you and join in the conversation around VMware products and solutions.
