Project Description: Develop and implement a Cloud-Hosted Regional NETLAB+. NETLAB+, a virtual lab management and scheduling appliance that provides students with the ability to access virtual lab sessions from any location with high-speed internet access. Traditionally it is used across the California Community Colleges for IT and Cyber-security training however, with its custom lab creation tool, it can also be used to create virtual labs for any curriculum requiring access to software based tools including: Automotive, Business, Health, Manufacturing, Transportation and other fields that use computerized applications and/or testing. NETLAB+ cloud hosting helps to defray the actual cost of entry and maintenance. Cloud based deployment will greatly enhance student access to IT and Cyber security labs and training by mitigating distance and time issues. A cloud-based system will allow access for students from any device and provide benefit to every college in the region. Cloud services will support students in onsite and remote courses, including those enrolled in both degree and certification programs.
