    55GENI racks are being implemented to meet the goals specified by the GPO [http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/GeniRacks GENI Rack Requirements].  Current rack projects can be characterized as follows:
    66
    7  * '''[wiki:GENI-Infrastructure-Portal/GENIRacks#GENIStarterRacks Starter Racks]''': Deployed by the GPO, a project to deliver an early low-end solution for GENI Racks.
    8  * '''[wiki:GENI-Infrastructure-Portal/GENIRacks#InstaGENIRacks InstaGENI]''' - A mid-range cost, expandable GENI Racks solution that can will be deployed at a large number of campuses, delivering Internet cloud applications support, along with Openflow and VLAN networking. These racks are normally deployed outside a site firewall.
    9  * '''[wiki:GENI-Infrastructure-Portal/GENIRacks#ExoGENIRacks ExoGENI]'''  A higher cost, flexible virtual networking topologies solution including OpenFlow, that also delivers a powerful platform for multi-site cloud applications. These racks are typically deployed as an integrated part of a campus network.

    1111All GENI Racks have layer 3 connections to the internet and layer 2 connections to the GENI core networks (curently NLR and Internet2). The racks use commodity Internet for control access to rack resources, and shared VLANS for the application and experiment data connections.  The racks may also use layer 3 Internet connections for some experiments, particularly IP cloud experiments.  This diagram illustrates logical connections for all the GENI Rack types:
