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 pGPOLab ExoGENI !OpenFlow page.
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.
