On the Creation of Customizable Laboratory Experiments: Deconstruction of Remote Laboratories to Create Laboratories as a Service (LaaS)

Agustin C. Caminero, Antonio Robles-Gomez, Salvador Ros, Llanos Tobarra, Roberto Hernandez, Rafael Pastor, Manuel Castro


In the recent years, the research community has been focused on cloud systems as a way to provide customizable on demand access to computing resources in a variety of flavors (the most widely known being Infrastructure as a Service, IaaS, Platform as a Service, PaaS, and Software as a Service, SaaS). In this work, we strive to provide our vision on cloud- based laboratories, which allow the on-demand creation and customization of experiments, these being called Laboratories as a Service (LaaS). Our LaaS will be based on the deconstruction of remote laboratories, creation of clients, and selection of a container. An aeolian laboratory based on the Lego Mindstorms robotic kit is used as an example.
