    1010 *  '''[#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.

    1313All 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:

     162== OpenGENI Components ==
     163
     164The OpenGENI rack includes the following types of systems:
     165
     166   * Control Node -  !OpenStack Server that runs the GENI API Server and the Operational monitoring function.
     167   * Two or more Experiment Nodes - Nodes managed by GRAM software, to provide boot services, account creation, experimental management, etc.
     168   * !OpenFlow Switch - Provides internal routing and data plane connectivity to the GENI backbone (layer 2 and layer 3)
     169   * Management Switch - Provides control plane connectivity to the Internet (layer 3)

     200
     201OpenGENI racks have the following site requirements:
     202 * Network Setup - Define how the rack will connect to the Internet and to the GENI backbones. Ex Regional connections, connection speed, VLANs to be used, etc.
     203 * Address assignment for rack components - Define which address, subnet mask, routing is to be configured for the rack components.
     204 * Power requirements - based on site requirements
     205 * Administrative accounts - Setup of site administrator account that will be created on the all rack devices.
     206 * Delivery logistics - Details for ''where'' the rack is to be delivered, ''who'' will accept the delivers, and ''when'' the delivery will take place.  Also covers any physical restrictions for the rack delivery.
