Testing Virtualisation Limits With A Network Training Laboratory
Source: Lilfehacker AU - Posted by Anthony Pell   
Network Security If you want to train large groups of students on how to use and deploy networking equipment, you’ll need to rapidly redeploy fresh system images as each new class comes in. That sounds like an obvious case for using virtualisation, but there are some traps to be aware of before pumping out those virtual machine images. During the server administration mini-conference at Linux.conf.au in Canberra today, James Lucas and Li Bing Chen explored some of the challenges involved in setting up virtualised network testing and training laboratory at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). Those five labs are typically used for networking management courses (both full academic subjects and shorter certification courses), covering both specific hardware and broader concepts around networking, security and wireless. Each allows up to 30 students.
