    5 GENI racks are being implemented to meet the goals specified by the GPO [wiki:GeniRacks GENI Rack Requirements].  Current rack projects can be characterized as follows:
    6 
    7 
    8  * '''[#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.
    9  * '''[#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.
    10  * '''[#GENIStarterRacks Starter Racks]''': Deployed by the GPO, a project to deliver an early low-end solution for GENI Racks.

    12 The GPO recommends the ExoGENI or InstaGENI Racks for broad campus deployment.
    13 
    14 All 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:
     5GENI racks are being implemented to meet the goals specified by the GPO [wiki:GeniRacks GENI Rack Requirements].  The first class of racks were "GENI Starter Racks." The deployment of these racks have been discontinued. However, documentation for this project exists for the edification for prospective rack builders and can be found [#PastProject here]. Current rack projects can be characterized as follows:

    154156The Starter Racks project is an effort to get [http://www.nsf.gov/cise/usignite/ US Ignite] cities connected to the GENI Network to facilitate experimental network and compute research, and city application development. The Starter racks jump start the delivery of fully integrated network and compute resources to selected sites. At this time, the Starter racks do not deliver GENI software features such as an Aggregate Manager. Starter Racks can be used as Meso-scale !OpenFlow Site, but requires GPO Infrastructure support to implement, if you are interested in running !OpenFlow on a deployed Starter rack contact [mailto:help@geni.net]. If you would like to make your own GENI Starter rack, see the [#GetYourOwnGENIRack section] below.
