What Resources Are in GENI (and what are they good for)?
This table gives new GENI users a quick and easy way to see what testbed / framework might be useful for their experiment. Each of the groups listed under here has a page which describes the tools and facilities available for their users. The list is sorted by scale.
Note that some resources in GENI are supported as production resources, while others are available as prototype resources. More details are available at ProductionResources .
