Hi Joachim, thanks a lot for your reply. That is exactly what I'd like to
do! Create a virtual machine on the server for a one-time user, and destroy
the virtual machine once the user closes the connection. However, I don't
have much experience in software development, thus some more clarification
would be really helpful for me. In particular, after the user opens the web
browser and selects a server, it is not clear to me how I could implement
these steps:
- the user can select the OS of the virtual machine, plus further software
to be installed on the vm
- the user launches the vm (as you said, this can just be a button to press)
and the vm gets created on the server
- the user is connected to the vm and now he/she can use it as a remote

Could you give some more advice on how to implement these steps (or maybe if
you know of any references that talk about these aspects)? Thanks again
