Announcing Azure DevTest Labs in Azure Government

Gerardo Saca

Today, we’re excited to announce the availability of Azure DevTest Labs in Azure Government. Azure DevTest Labs is a self-service sandbox environment in Azure that enables you to quickly create dev/test environments while minimizing waste and controlling costs.

Developers and testers need to spend considerable time configuring their self-service environments. Decision makers want to leverage the cloud to improve the efficiency of their developers while managing costs and minimizing process overhead.

With Azure DevTest Labs, you – the lab creator – select the settings for lab use, security, compliance, and governance. Your lab users create virtual machines from the set of Azure marketplace and custom images that you define. Authorized lab users leverage reusable artifacts to run extensions or deploy applications once a virtual machine is created. In this way, IT partners with your software teams who are empowered to work with agility and self-service – the DevOps way.

With the availability of DevTest Labs in Azure Government, US government agencies and their partners can modernize their legacy infrastructure to build fast, easy and lean environments. You can get a high-level understanding of the service through the What is Azure DevTest Labs? video and get started with using the service via the DevTest Labs documentation.

Known limitations are listed in the DevTest Labs variations section of the Azure Government available services documentation.
