Longer summary - Create a Lab that contains your team's templates and policies
DevTest Labs enables development teams to efficiently self-manage virtual machines (VMs) and Azure resource manager (ARM) based resources while staying within security policies and guardrails defined by central admins. Developers can create resources from pre-configured templates with the latest software bits and IT approved tools in minutes as opposed to waiting for days or weeks. Central admins on the other hand, can embed policies, budgets and schedules on these resources to minimize waste and control costs.

- Easily integrate your deployment pipeline with DevTest Labs to provision on-demand environments.
- Get going quickly using virtual machines from pre-created pools
- Minimize wastes with lab, virtual machine level quotas and policies
