The XtremeLabs Cloud Express Pass for Azure

XtremeLabs now offers two options for labs that require Azure access. Learning Partners can choose to purchase our standard Azure labs, which require an Azure Pass to be provided for each student; or can now choose our Cloud Express Pass for Azure option. The Cloud Express Pass for Azure automatically generates a set of Azure credentials for students to access an Azure subscription from within the XtremeLabs Viewer UI. The Azure credentials will be available to students under the File menu once the lab has been launched. The Azure subscription is fully managed by XtremeLabs and does not require students to sign up for their own Azure credentials.
