    1616As also in the above picture GENI has two clearly separated network planes:
    1717  1. '''Control / Management Plane''' : These are the networking connections that are used in GENI in order to control and manage the resources (login, install software, etc). GENI uses the regular Internet as its Control Plane. This plane is represented by the blue lines in the above diagram.
    18   2. '''Data Plane''': These are the networking connections to the private GENI backbone that are used for experimental data exchange, either within one site or between sites. This is the plane that needs to be ''sliceable'', ''deeply programmable'' and ''federated'' (i.e. no one organization owns the whole of the GENI dataplane network, but different organizations provide different parts of the connectivity.

This is the plane that needs to be ''sliceable'', ''deeply programmable'' and ''federated'' (i.e. no one organization owns the whole of the GENI dataplane network, but different organizations provide different parts of the connectivity. The dataplane is represented by the thick orange lines in the above diagram.

    20 All GENI resources are designed so that they can cleanly separate when possible the above to network planes. E.g. racks have two different switches: the management and the data plane switch, each compute server has a dedicated network interface to connect to the control plane. This is essential so that any problems on the data plane do not affect the ability to control and manage the resources.
