Using the cloud instead of physical hardware for a home lab?

By great81 ·
I'm wondering if anybody here knows of a site/cloud offering that allows you to simulate a home lab environment....basically I've built physical home labs in the past, especially years ago when I was first starting out. However, I really don't want to go that route now, for many reasons including just not having the physical space in my 1 BR apartment.

I've been doing online training to brush up on my decade old linux experience and the site I use allows you access to a "virtual lab" of sorts however you can only create/use one server at a time. I'm looking for something that I can use to test things like cluster builds, domains, etc and other items. Basically it would be the same type of thing a company operating in the cloud would use, only it would be geared towards a single user and hopefully not cost a fortune.

Just thought I'd ask here, as I need some kind of lab/testing environment at home, and while I wish I could get my company to build one for me its just not in the budget at this time.
