The resources and services offered by cloud computing platforms have been opening new alternatives of expansion to several research areas. The cloud computing platform applications to the educative area have been creating interest in different educative organizations. This thesis proposes the use of the Amazon EC2 cloud computing platform to build networking laboratories for the computational and networking educative areas. Within this paper, several options are evaluated in order to fulfill this objective. The final proposed design introduces a practical scenario for networking laboratories. Future enhancements of the final design are proposed.
