Welcome GENI Developers!

The Global Environment for Network Innovations – GENI – is a new, nationwide suite of infrastructure supporting research and education in networking, distributed systems, security, and novel applications. It is supported by the National Science Foundation, and available without charge for research and classroom use.

GENI is developed by the hard work of many members of the community. GENI developers build tools, aggregates, support services, and other key components of GENI.


GENI developers communicate using the  GENI Developers Google Group. Older discussions are  archived here.


GENI funded software is released using  the GENI Public License, an open source license.

Many of the GENI tools and services have public software version control repositories.
