    21 The following is a list of GENI aggregates that are currently available for use by experimenters.  Click on the name of an aggregate to get basic information about the aggregate such as its numbers of resources, network connectivity and operational status.  As you plan your experiment you will want to consider:
     21The following is a table lists GENI aggregates that are currently available for use by experimenters and the networks (GENI backbone network or the Internet) to which they connect.  GENI has two backbone networks: [http://www.internet2.edu/ Internet2] and [http://www.nlr.net/ National Lambda Rail (NLR)].  The Internet2 backbone provides 1Gbps of dedicated bandwidth for GENI experiments and the NLR backbone provides up to 30Gbps of non-dedicated  bandwidth.   Some aggregates that connect to GENI backbone networks may be connected to other resources on the network using Layer 2 VLANS, giving experimenters the option of running non-IP based Layer 3 and above protocols.

     55As you plan your experiment you will want to consider:
    2256  * The degree of control you need over your experiment.  Do you need to tightly control the resources (CPU, bandwidth, etc.) allocated to your experiment or will best-effort suffice.  If you need a tightly controlled environment you might want to consider the U. of Utah ProtoGENI aggregate that allocate entire PCs that can be connected in arbitrary topologies.
    2357  * The desired network topology.  Does your experiment have to be geographically distributed?  What kinds of connectivity do you need between these geographically distributed locations.  Almost all aggregates can connect using IP connectivity over the Internet.   Many aggregates connect to one of the GENI backbones and allow you to set up IP connections with other resources on the backbone.  This will give you a bit more control over the network.   Some aggregates provide Layer 2 connectivity over a GENI backbone i.e. you can set up vlans between these aggregates and other resources on the backbone network.  This allows you to run non-IP protocols across between the aggregate and other resources.
    2458  * The number of resources you need from an aggregate.  Aggregates vary from small installations such as the GPO Lab ProtoGENI aggregate that consists of eleven nodes to the PlanetLab and ProtoGENI aggregates that consist of hundreds of nodes.
