     21 * Defined ExoGENI rack architecture in consultations with GPO
     22 * Developed [wiki:ORCA-BEN-GEC13-SR additional ORCA software] to run on the defined architecture stack (!OpenStack for compute substrate control and !OpenFlow for VLAN slicing [pending availability of hybrid mode from the vendor])
