ExoGENI Aggregate

Enter aggregate name

This ExoGENI aggregate supports the GENI Aggregate Provider Agreement (mm/dd/yyyy).

ExoGENI Aggregate Overview

Aggregate Manager URL Enter Compute Aggregate: or FOAM:
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.
Aggregate Status Operational monitoring not widely available, restricted access to monitoring at GMOC
Slice Authorities Recognized Rack SM - and ExoSM - . All available ORCA SMs are listed here -
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 the ExoGENI rack participants to RENCI ExoGENI resources using NLR's FrameNet service. For FIU, Vlans 1760-1769 extend from RENCI to Florida Lambda Rail (FLR) where they're delivered to AMPATH and then onto FIU. Vlans 1752 (shared) and 1755-1759 (exclusive) are available for mesoscale connectivity.

For Compute Aggregate or FOAM, <<Insert Site Diagram Here>> Make sure to note firewalls, if any, on both control (layer 3) and data paths.

For FOAM Aggregate only, insert <<Insert OpenFlow Port List Here>>. Otherwise remove this port list item for compute resource aggregate.
