     32[http://cloudlab.us/ CloudLab] is a flexible, scientific infrastructure for research on the future of cloud computing. Researchers come to !CloudLab to build their own clouds, experimenting with new architectures that will form the basis for the next generation of the world's computing platforms.
     33
     34!CloudLab provides researchers with control and visibility all the way down to the bare metal. Provisioning an entire cloud inside of !CloudLab takes only minutes. Most !CloudLab resources provide hard isolation from other users, so it can support hundreds of simultaneous "slices", with each getting an artifact-free environment suitable for scientific experimentation with new cloud architectures. Run standard cloud software stacks such as !OpenStack and Hadoop. Or build your own from the ground up. The bare metal's the limit!
     35
     36The first !CloudLab clusters will have 15,000 cores distributed across three sites around the United States: Utah, Wisconsin, and South Carolina. Each cluster has a different focus: storage and networking (using hardware from Cisco), high-memory computing (Dell), and energy-efficient computing (HP). !CloudLab is interconnected with nationwide and international infrastructure from Internet2, so it will be possible to extend private, software-defined networks right to
     37every host.
     38
     39This tutorial will cover (a) provisioning of resources on !CloudLab, (b) installing a custom cloud software stack, and (c) creating a “profile” to share that custom stack with others.
     40
     41== Audience ==
     42
     43Primarily of interest to the GENI community.
     44
     45== Pre-requisites / Pre-work ==
     46We expect that the attendees will have a [https://portal.geni.net GENI account] and know how to [http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/GENIExperimenter/Tutorials/ToolsSetup ssh with a private key].
     47
     48In addition, we wanted to make you aware of two pieces of information:
     49 1. Please attend the !CloudLab / Cameleon Talk immediately prior to this tutorial (on Tues from 10.30-11.00 AM)  in the same room.  This talk will provide background information about !CloudLab before the hands-on at 11.
     50 2. In addition, the number of people who expressed interest in this tutorial is roughly equal to the capacity of the largest room available.  In the unfortunate event that the room will not safely hold everyone, we will give priority to those who have completed the pre-work and who are on time.
