Title: The Development and deployment of a remote virtual lab based on Amazon Cloud for networking courses
Author: Nunez, Emilio
Abstract: Remote virtual laboratories had been implemented using different approaches. Universities have adopted such model mostly for the distance learners. Furthermore, such systems have been implemented internally and used in conjunction with their physical hands-on labs. Nevertheless, the introduction of Cloud Computing and the virtual platform environment offered by it can serves for the creation of new type of services. This thesis aims to use this new technology and develop a remote virtual laboratory that can be used by students for doing their hands-on lab in the networking courses at PUCMM. For this purpose the services used were the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) as an infrastructure provider and the VMLogix Lab Manager as the management software for the use of the laboratory. The paper includes the development and deployment of two labs one in Windows and the other in Linux. Furthermore, the problems encountered and the outcomes are documented to serve as a base implementation guide for future laboratories using the Amazon Cloud Computing platform.
