VCL Details:
The VCL is an iSchool virtual lab environment that allows students and faculty to create Windows/Ubuntu instances using Amazon Web Services (AWS). Working in the VCL “Amazon” cloud, allows for abstracting the complicated
instance configuration process on Amazon EC2 and provides a simple interface to create OS environments (instances).
The VCL proves to be an effective tool in learning since software images can be curated according to professors’ needs
with software pre-installed to their requirements. Since the images are run on the cloud Amazon infrastructure this
provides another flexible hosted option.
