Aggregate Resources An ExoGENI aggregate includes 10 servers (8 VM capable servers and 2 bare metal servers) that can load experimenter specified OS images. Racks also support OpenFlow topologies, usually including extensions onto campus OpenFlow networks.
Typical Experiments ExoGENI provides a controllable, predictable, and repeatable network environment. Experimenters can get virtual machines or dedicated PCs on which they have full "root" access, run available operating systems of their choice, and connect nodes in an arbitrary topology that can support OpenFlow. There are 3 types of ExoGENI racks: IBM, Cisco and Ciena. This site is an IBM ExoGENI rack type.

Usage Policies A GENI Recommended Use Policy is available. Site should also add links here to their own usage policies.
Layer 2 Connectivity Interconnectivity to ExoGENI racks is implemented through a hub and spoke topology that maps ExoGENI rack participants to RENCI ExoGENI resources using Internet2. For FIU, Vlans 1760-1769 extend from RENCI to Florida Lambda Rail (FLR) where they're delivered to AMPATH and then onto FIU.
