Use a lab environment for your devops

A lab environment is a collection of virtual and physical machines that you can use to develop and test applications. A lab environment can contain multiple roles needed to test multi-tiered applications, such as workstations, web servers, and database servers. In addition, you can use a build-deploy-test workflow with your lab environment to automate the process of building, deploying, and running automated tests on your application.


Visual Studio no longer supports Microsoft Test Manager and Lab Management for automated testing. Similarly, SCVMM and XAML Builds are no longer supported. We recommend Azure DevTest Labs instead.
