If you’ve been reading along for a while now, you know I’ve been having a blast building and expanding my Imperfect Lab. But I admit, if you are looking for a full step-by-step guide to what to actually put in you lab, I’ve haven’t given you all that. But I do know somewhere you can look!
Available right inside the official Azure documentation is the details (including PowerShell) for setting up a hybrid cloud environment for testing. Now, this first guide requires you to have a physical data center lab to connect to using RRAS, but you can easily rework it for a VNET-to-VNET if that’s what you desire, by following these instructions instead.
Once you have the basics in place, you can do things like build a full SharePoint Farm (on my short list), set up a Web-based LOB application or set up DirSync. Or do all of them!
You can find the official post about all this goodness here – http://blogs.technet.com/b/tlgs/archive/2015/01/19/new-set-of-hybrid-cloud-test-environments.aspx
