    66The figure below is a schematic of the GENI-in-a-Box.  The GENI-in-a-Box  !VirtualBox VM includes the [http://trac.gpolab.bbn.com/gcf/wiki/Omni Omni] experiment control tool, a clearinghouse used to create slices and an aggregate manager that makes resources available for experimentation.  The resources available from the GENI-in-a-Box aggregate manager are up to six virtual machines running Linux.  Each of these virtual machines has three NICs.  They can be connected to form any topology that does not require more than six nodes and more than three NICs on a node.  GENI standard rspecs are used to specify the machines, links and topology required by the experiment.

    8 Experimenters have root access to the virtual machines used in their experiment.  They can use ssh to connect to and log into these machines.

     13== Where can I get GENI-in-a-Box? ==
     14GENI-in-a-Box can be downloaded from:   .  This is a fairly large download (~3.1GB) and so you will want a good broadband Internet connection when you download.

     16== How do I get started with GENI-in-a-Box? ==
     17Instructions on getting started with GENI-in-a-Box are at: .   Please make sure you have  [http://https://www.virtualbox.org VirtualBox] Version 4.1.16 or later installed on your computer before you follow the instructions on that page.

    16 GENI-in-a-Box is most similar to the GENI ProtoGENI aggregate in that both
     20GENI-in-a-Box resources share a number of similarities with resources from the ProtoGENI aggregate.  It will therefore be easiest to move your experiment from GENI-in-a-Box to ProtoGENI.  See this page for things to watch for when you move your experiment from GENI-in-a-Box to ProtoGENI.
