Back when what is now known as the .NET Services Team was first getting started, the team made available very early access to their work through the labs.biztalk.net web site and supporting endpoints. This gave the team an opportunity early on to engage early adopters in order to get meaningful and very helpful feedback. This feedback helped the team codify the work that ultimately went into the October CTP release of .NET Services.
With the release of the .NET Services October CTP we are now able to open up this dialog to an even broader set of customers. And although the labs.biztalk.net site served us well, it is now time for us to retire it. Azure.com and the supporting developer portal for .NET Services and SSDS supersede the the initial work done with labs.biztalk.net. So, as of today, we are retiring labs.biztalk.net.
Thank you from the .NET Services Team.
