PCNSE Exam lab

Hello everyone,


As I am about to get into PCNSE course, I’d like to setup a lab for practicing. Which Cloud Provider could I rely on ?

I’m planning to set up a lab made up of a Palo Alto firewall, 02 workstations (one for the management plane and the other one as a lan computer), 01 Server playing the role of an AD and ADCS. 

Any suggestion for me?

thanks in advance 🙂

Hi there,

Any cloud provider could host this lab, the only differentiator would be cost. Even then it would be significantly more than hosting it yourself. You could probably get away with a 4 or 6 core CPU. 

I wrote a blog post about running KVM images on EVE-NG:
Palo Alto 11.0.1 VM on EVE-NG with initial configuration – CS7 Networks

Definitely go inexpensive. A VM-50 is good enough to play with as a lab unit. If you want to get a 'lab' unit for your house, dont go lower than a pa-440.
