Abstract

This paper discusses the issues involved in using virtual machines to teach database administration concepts and the associated issues in a university student environment. Previous work on using virtual machines in system/network administration university labs is reviewed as well as the use of virtual machines in a database development environment. A virtual machine project for a Virtual Information Technology Teaching Laboratory (VITTL) using central servers offering a potential solution is described. This solution provides a secure environment with each student isolated from others with their own virtual machines.
