This ExoGENI aggregate supports the GENI Aggregate Provider Agreement (02/27/2013). Recording agreement date based on conversation with Heidi Dempsey.

ExoGENI Aggregate Overview

Color( #FF8C10, #ffffff , This rack is used for early development and integration of new GENI features. Scheduled maintenance and upgrades are likely to be more frequent here than at other racks.)?

Aggregate Resources An ExoGENI aggregate includes 10 Hosts (8 VM Servers and 2 dedicated PCs ) that can load experimenter specified OS images. Racks support extensions onto campus networks. Note PCs are only available via RENCI Global resource manager the ExoSM. OpenFlow topologies are supported, see GPOLab ExoGENI !OpenFlow page. There are 3 types of ExoGENI racks: IBM, Cisco and Ciena. This site is an IBM ExoGENI rack type.
Typical Experiments ExoGENI supports both compute and and network resource slivers, that can be managed by either a site specific aggregate manager or by the ExoSM, the RENCI Global Resource Manager. Experimenters can get virtual machines or dedicated PCs on which they have full "root" access, run operating systems of their choice, and connect nodes in an arbitrary topology. Supports campus network connections.

Usage Policies The GENI Recommended Use Policy is available.
Layer 2 Connectivity Interconnectivity to ExoGENI racks is implemented through a hub and spoke topology that maps ExoGENI rack participants to RENCI ExoGENI resources. For BBN, Vlans 2601-2610 extend from RENCI to NOX where they're delivered directly to BBN.

The following is the layout of ExoGENI Aggregate compute resources:

GENI Network Stitching

Color( #FF8C10, #ffffff , Rack supports GENI Network Stitching and is available for experimenters. Note that Networks Stitching is actively being developed and tested on this rack, which may make the Network Stitching feature unreliable for experiments.)?
