The paper presents the teaching experience using virtualization as tool for deliver software infrastructure. Nowadays, cloud services are becoming more popular on companies level. Stating this, also universities should use a similar learning environment, to enhance students’ readiness into labour market insertion. The major providers and their services are analysed and compared with traditional software and hardware infrastructure existent in universities. The comparison starts by examining the requirements for two different faculties from computer science and engineering field. Also, the present hardware and software infrastructure which is used in the learning process is depicted. Furthermore, the existent collaborative tools and cloud services are analysed in terms of student professional and soft skills. After having a clear picture of AS IS stage, the cloud technology is presented, with a case study for major cloud services providers, making business analyses for cloud implementation, as basic infrastructure for learning process. The implementation scenarios will cover both possibilities of public and private cloud models. The optimized model for both faculties, enhances different approaches and cloud adoption policies. The step-by-step plan for cloud adoption is described in the last section of the paper. The case study is based on School of Computer Science for Business Management of Romanian-American University and Faculty of Engineering and Management of Technological Systems, for bachelor programs: first, Computer Science and second, Industrial logistics.
