Answers to common questions…
We all have questions, here are our answers to some of the common questions
If you are 13 years of age or older, you just need to fill out our “Account Request” form, for some of our younger students, we will need your parent or legal guardian’s permission before your account is created. If you parent / legal guardian is present when account is requested, they can sign-off online. Just in case that your parent or legal guardian is not available when you request your account, we are required to contact them before your account is approved.
Account creation is a manual process and can take up to 12 hours sometimes. Account request cut-off times are 7 AM, 11 AM, 9 PM during weekdays. All times are in Pacific Standard Time. While you wait for your account, learn few things about Yellow Circle Cloud on our social media pages.
Yellow Circle is the place for all levels of Information Technology students to create enterprise grade solutions while learning. This free Cloud service provides students with virtual infrastructure to create routers, networks, servers, firewalls, & load-balancers. This environment is built for students to be innovative with their ideas and create enterprise grade information technology infrastructures all from within their web browser, without ever thinking about the cost of any of the items.
Our cloud is designed exclusively as a sandbox to learn. We wanted a fast, easy way for students to deploy virtual machines, appliances, networks & firewalls and have a fun learning experience in real world environment, without having to stand up hardware themselves. It probably goes without saying that this is not the place for production applications – you should host only test servers or applications here. In fact, your account on Yellow Circle will be periodically monitored to make sure no one tries to run production workloads in this environment. If you have some creative ideas and not sure how to proceed, you can always contact us.
We rely heavily on our dedicated volunteers & beta testers. It takes a team to make a difference, and yes our volunteers are part of our team. To become a volunteer, you must submit a volunteer request form. Based on information you provided, we will match you up with the work that you can do for Yellow Circle.
