Raman Iyer's announcement (at the top of this forum) about "Live at BI Labs: SQL Server Data Mining for the Cloud" should be removed because that service is not online anymore.
However, as of today (May 16, 2013) anyone can try out the SQL Server Labs:
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/sqlserver/learning-center/virtual-labs.aspx -- none of them have SSAS Multidimensional loaded, and therefore no data mining, but the labs available highlight new features in SQL Server 2012 (all of which can and should
be considered for use with data mining in enterprise solutions).
