The "Cyber Range" concept arose as a method for organizations to provide realistic training in penetration testing and incident response. These ranges often utilize virtualization to reduce cost and allow for rapid reconfiguration. However, virtualization management software is often expensive or difficult to install. This paper presents a management application using open-source software with the intent of allowing educators to rapidly create virtual ranges at minimal cost.
