Easiest way to get a Lync account for development?


  • Is there anywhere to get a Lync Server account easily, just for client development purposes?


    Right now the only choices are:

    1)  Build out virtual servers from scratch - takes lots of time and I'm not really infrastructure centric

    2)  Office 365 beta - tried to sign up but got a "we'll contact you someday" reply


    What would be ideal

    a)  Is there anywhere to get a hosted account?  Even if were a limited and/or test server.

    b)  Is there anywhere to get VM images fully configured for Lync client development? (I have the licenses necessary)


    Thank you,
