Virtual servers are being increasingly utilized in higher education forclient computers, this thesis investigates if virtualization could also bebeneficial for servers. By providing three general models (the first beingthe current situation and the two latter leveraging virtualization) andevaluating each, a broad sense of the applicability, possibilities andremaining problems of introducing server virtualization is provided.For one specific course, TDDD27 - Advanced web programming, amore concrete analysis is done and specific recommendations are pro-vided.The conclusion is that there are still more work to be done, butboth of the proposed models are possible and suitable for some courses.Their introduction should have several positive effects, for instancefairer courses and more focus on the subject at hand.
