     3== 1.0 Why use GENI? ==
    44GENI might be right  for your experiment if:
    55  * Your experiment requires more resources than would ordinarily be found in your lab.  Since GENI is a suite of infrastructures it can potentially provide you with more resources than is typically found in any one laboratory.  This is especially true for compute resources: GENI provides access to large testbeds with hundreds of PCs and to cloud computing resources.
     
    77  * Your experiment requires requires geographically distributed resources.  Some GENI aggregates include resources distributed around the world.

    1111GENI is a suite of infrastructures for networking and distributed systems experimentation.  GENI supports at-scale experimentation on shared, heterogeneous, highly instrumented infrastructure and enables deep programmability throughout the network.

    2121The 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.

     55=== 3.3 Picking Resources for Your Experiment ===
    5656As you plan your experiment you will want to consider:
    5757  * 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.
