Recently I have been using DevTest Labs to test customer scenarios a lot and deploying a new lab is quite easy utilizing the Azure DevTest Lab quickstart templates.

Here are the steps to creating a DevTest Lab in your subscription:

Create Resource Group

Create a new resource group in your Azure subscription.

Deploy DevTest Lab

Deploy DevTest lab to your Resource Group. This creation of the lab via the ARM template or using the portal will automatically create you a Storage Account, Virtual Network, DevTest Lab and Key vault.

In under 2 minutes you can have a basic ready to go DevTest Lab. Next article I will cover how we can modify the ARM template to include additional features.
