Hi guys

I'm looking for an environment outside of my work place that I can log in to to play around with Vmware along with setting up Windows infrastructures. So that I can set up a lab of my own. I know that AWS is one place, any other places?

Thanks for helping
Yash

You can also use OVH (cheap + fast + beefy hardware).

Configure your machine level host OS as Ubuntu + install LXD.

Then inside LXD containers install VirtualBox (free) or VMWare (paid) + any Windows release you like.

In this scenario you'll likely pay less for faster hardware. VirtualBox is free. You'll only pay for your Windows licenses.
