Aggregate Overview

Aggregate Resources This aggregate includes: (1) The University of Utah Emulab testbed consisting of over 400 co-located PCs that can be loaded with an experimenter specified OS image and connected in arbitrary topologies and (2) Programmable switches at Internet2 backbone locations at Salt Lake City, Kansas City and Washington DC.
Typical Experiments The Emulab testbed is suited for experiments that require a controllable, predictable, and repeatable network environment. Experimenters can get PC nodes--virtual machines or complete PCs-- on which they have full "root" access, run an operating system of their choice, and connect nodes in an arbitrary topology. The ProtoGENI backbone nodes are suitable for wide area networking experiments over the Internet2. Experimenters may set up VLANS connecting GENI aggregates and other resources on Internet2 and install custom software on the ProtoGENI backbone nodes for Layer 2 and above processing.

Using this Aggregate

Clearinghouses Recognized ProtoGENI Clearinghouse | PlanetLab Clearinghouse
Usage Policies The ProtoGENI Emulab aggregate is a public facility; resources may be allocated and used by any GENI experimenter with suitable credentials. ProtoGENI Emulab users can ask for as many nodes as are currently available. Experiments are "swapped out" of the testbed after a "Maximum Duration" period of inactivity. For details see All users of ProtoGENI Emulab resources must abide by the Emulab Security Policy, Emulab Acceptable Use Policy and Emulab Node Use Policy.
