Many factors influence education nowadays. Educational institutions are faced with budget cuttings, outdated IT, data security management and the willingness to integrate remote learning at home. Virtualization technologies provide innovative solutions to the problems.
The paper presents an original educational infrastructure using virtualization technologies implemented in a training process at Kaunas University of Technology. This infrastructure allows university students and staff to access virtual desktops and applications via Web, both in computer classes at the University, and for self-working at home. This paper introduces virtualization technologies of the implemented infrastructure highlighting the benefits, outlines functions of the infrastructure and presents research experiments of network load monitoring that have been performed to find out problems of the infrastructure.
