    2828== 3  GENI Resources ==
    29 The following 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.  Experimenters wishing to connect Internet2 connected resources to NLR connected resources may do so using switches in Atlanta .
     29GENI has a number of aggregates that make different kinds of resources available for use by experimenters.  Examples of such resources include: 
     30  * 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.
     31  * 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.

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