Visual Studio Lab Management capability will be available at the end of August 2010.

 

See the various blogs which describe in more detail.

And the video of the event.

And the super-cool part (snipped from Amit’s blog above)

Lab Management capability will be immediately available to all customers who have licenses for one of the following products:

  • Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate with MSDN, or
  • Visual Studio Test Professional 2010 with MSDN

 

If you look at the demo video, you can see Coded UI Test in action within a lab environment. The experience is seamless and now empowers you to run Coded UI Test in a lab environment as part of your Build-Deploy-Test process.

Of course, another important touch point between Coded UI Test and Lab Management is that all of the product testing is being done in Lab environments.
