Abstract Over the last few years the use of the simulation technologies and the internet in education industry has become wide spread. A Virtual Lab is definitely a large-scale solution to a large-scale problem. Its implementation being very intense but the benefits of Virtualization Technology greatly facilitates the provisioning of accessibility to Adaptive Learning software. Bearing the expenses to purchase the individual softwares is not feasible for students institutions or the state itself. Cloud VLAB or simply said a Virtual Laboratory server-side licensing is taken care of as software licenses are scalable and costs much less. Cloud computing paradigm promises to deliver the desired hardware to the end user at a low cost with an exceptionally easy to use interface through the commonly available internet. This paper outlines an effort at the Amity University to deploy a hybrid Infrastructure as a Cloud Service so as to enhance the student learning and experimenting experience. This paper covers the deployment methods and configurations implemented for OpenStack along with security provisions to deliver the desired computer hardware. The rationale behind the provisions of virtual hardware and the operating system configurations have been defined in great detail supported by examples. This paper also covers how the resources have been used within the taught courses as a Virtual Lab and in the research projects. The authors also added the Service offering on to the IaaS cloud. The reason behind choosing OpenStack and KVM hypervisor is that both are open source and right now one of the market leaders for cloud computing.This development has led to the students freedom to enhance their practical knowledge.
