A while back I blogged about the Autolab (which I have used on Fusion as well as Workstation) for testing new things and training for certifications as well as live demos. This has proven a very valuable resource for me and it will be for you as well. Many of the vBrownbag hosts have also used the Autolab in their continued weekly virtualization podcast on VMware certifications.
The Autolab 1.0 was released today. The Autolab has added many new features including Veeam ONE as well as vCloud Director and VMware View. These features are all optional but strong additions to an already strong way to deliver your self contained Lab.

And if you want to see the Autolab in action. Our very own Jason Nash with Varrow will be using the Autolab at VMworld in his session in a live demo.
