Linux Online LAB


Hello All,

I would like to have a hands on experience on Linux. Right now I don't have a facility to build my own lab. I am just curious if we have good online labs available for LINUX , where I can create 2-3 instance of Linux?

Thanks,
-Prashant GIRENNAVAR

You have a computer now...so load VirtualBox. Build your own Linux system and use it. I'm sure there are some online resources, but you are as capable of researching them as I am.

The big cloud providers such as Google, Microsoft or Amazon all offer free cloud access for a limited time. You can run instances there if you have no computer. Or you invest a handful of dollars a month.

To run Linux at home, a VM with 1-2GB of memory should be sufficient as long as you don't use a desktop (and even the desktop might fit). An old laptop with 8GB of memory is largely sufficient to run a couple of Linux VMs.

Not sure if you can get SuseStudio to do that anymore.

There was an example of a java based VM that ran some instances. I forget that one.

As berndbausch suggested, you can use Amazon AWS to create a few instances for free during the trial period. Last year, I signed up to AWS for free for 3 months for a school project. I was able to create several Linux instances at no cost.

Good luck!
