     33== Scope ==
     35The GENI facility envisages researchers  constructing, deploying, and executing experiments on a variety of test infrastructures.  Various large-scale tests, including wide-area storage, content distribution, and some forms of sensing with analysis, require the simultaneous use of both widely distributed sensing and actuating nodes and analysis  nodes in large-scale cloud clusters.  Eucalyptus is popular, open-source software for building a cloud computing infrastructure.   The  GENICloud project will build a GENI federation interface for compute clusters running Eucalyptus.  This interface will allow Eucalyptus clusters to federate via the Slice-based Federation Architecture (SFA), and will enable experimenters to seamlessly deploy and configure slices spanning PlanetLab and multiple Eucalyptus installations.
     37The project anticipates devoting approximately 32 nodes at the HP Labs OpenCirrus facility long-term to hosting a Eucalyptus cluster, and opening this to approved GENI researchers.  This cluster will be tightly instrumented by HP Labs in order to gather data on cluster usage and resource usage
