In this work , a cloud infrastructure is analysed and deployed to virtualize computing laboratories. Virtualization of computing resources allows the user to face a single computing interface whose capabilities are really offered by a cloud system that makes use of its processing capability on demand. The use of this proposed infrastructure reduces the cost of equipment investments as well as maintenance of real laboratories and further, it makes a more efficient use of available resources with a transparent user experience.
