    3030  * Backbone networks.  Geographically distributed GENI resources may be connected to one another using Internet2, NLR or the public Internet.  Many aggregates can be connected using Layer 2 VLANS over Internet2 and NLR.
    3131  * Programmable nodes.   GENI provides a wide array of programmable hosts such as entire PCs from the ProtoGENI aggregate that can be booted with an experimenter specified operating system, operating system virtual machines from the PlanetLab aggregate that can host experimenter software, programming language virtual machines from the Million Node GENI aggregate and cloud computing resources from the GENICloud aggregate.
    32   * Programmable networks.

    34 See [wiki:ExperimenterPortal Section 7] for a listing of GENI aggregates along with a description of the resources they provide.

    37 === 3.1 Picking Resources for Your Experiment ===
     32  * Programmable networks.  Experimenter programmable switches within the GENI backbone networks (e.g. ProtoGENI backbone nodes and SPP ndoes) and at campuses around the country (e.g. Stanford OpenFlow network).
     33  * Wireless testbeds.  Resources for wireless experiments such as the ORBIT and DOME testbeds.

     39== 4 Picking Resources for Your Experiment ==
    3840As you plan your experiment you will want to consider:
    3941  * ''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.

     53=== 5.1 Experiment Control Tools ===
    5254GENI experiment control tools are used to create slices, add or remove resources to slices, and delete slices.  Some tools may also help with the installation of experimenter specified software into resources in slices; starting, pausing, resuming and stopping the execution of an experiment; and monitoring of the resources in slices for failures.  Examples of GENI experiment control tools include [http://gush.cs.williams.edu/trac/gush Gush], [http://trac.gpolab.bbn.com/gcf/wiki/Omni  Omni],  [http://www.cs.princeton.edu/~jrex/gew/gew-sfi.ppt PlanetLab SFI] and [http://www.protogeni.net/trac/protogeni/wiki/MapInterface ProtoGENI Tools].

    5456In addition to these experiment control tools, individual aggregates provide experimenters with additional tools to install and manage software on their resources.  For example, the Million Node GENI aggregate  provides a set of tools to manage the virtual machines it proves as computing resources.

     58=== 5.2 Instrumentation and Measurement Tools ===
    5759GENI instrumentation tools are currently aggregate specific.  Examples of such tools include [http://www.netlab.uky.edu/p/instools Instrumentation Tools] for the Kentucky ProtoGENI aggregate, [http://raven.cs.arizona.edu/projects/project Owl] for the !PlanetLab aggregate and [http://mytestbed.net/wiki/omf/Introduction OMF/OML] for the ORBIT aggregate.

    7476 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.  Experimenters wishing to connect Internet2 connected resources to NLR connected resources may do so using switches in Atlanta .
