The VMware NSX Labs are now Available in the HOL Online Portal

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.

Remember to participate in the HOL Community page at http://hol.vmware.com/, take labs at http://labs.hol.vmware.com/ and tweet us @VMwareHOL.
