Virtual lab has gained popularity among cloud computing practitioners due to its promise of on-demand provisioning of computer resources. However, lack of standardized guidelines hinders the adoption among educational institutions. Achievements of non-functional requirements possess greater challenge due to their qualitative nature. These requirements can be achieved by applying guidelines during software development. However, priority assessment of non-functional requirements is needed before the selection of suitable guidelines. This paper tries to apply fuzzy analytic hierarchy process in order to aggregate group decisions, as well as dealing with ambiguities of decision makers' judgement. The application of fuzzy analytic approach in this paper had successful create a solid foundation for software developers to identify the essential non-functional requirement in virtual lab environment. Importantly, the result can provide a promising reference model for better understanding of cloud computing in educational sector.
