Brief demo description (A few sentences suitable for a GEC15 attendee information page. See for examples.)

We will demonstrate recent enhancements to virtualization in ProtoGENI and InstaGENI: nodes sliced using Xen, the ability to capture and load images on virtual machines, the ability to move images between aggregates using URL-based image descriptors, and the ability to pre-stage images on shared hosts for fast sliver creation.

List of equipment that will need AC connections (e.g. laptop, switch hardware prototype, monitor). (Just put in the number of connections needed if your demo description already lists the equipment)

One laptop

Number of wired network connections (include required bandwidth if significant)

One, bandwidth not significant.

Number of wireless network connections (include required bandwidth if significant)

None (unless wired is not available)

Number of static addresses needed (if any)


Monitor (y/n, specify VGA or DVI) (Specify resolution only if your software has resolution restrictions.)

Yes, DVI preferred, but VGA is fine too

Number of posters (max size poster boards are 30" x 40")
