Scalable Sensing Service? (Purdue, HP Labs)
GMOC? (Indiana)

I&M services for Experimenters, including:

Instrumentation Tools (for use with protoGENI)
OMF/OML
LAMP (uses perfSONAR technology, for use with protoGENI)
OnTimeMeasure (for use with protoGENI or PlanetLab)

I&M services for monitoring infrastructure, including:
