Aggregate Name

Million Node GENI / Seattle

Aggregate Overview

Aggregate Resources This aggregate provides compute resources on platforms donated by individuals and institutions. Platforms may be mobile and/or behind firewalls and NATs. Experimenter software, written in a subset of Python, runs in sandboxes that limit the consumption of platform resources such as CPU, memory, storage space, and network bandwidth.
Typical Experiments Million Node GENI is ideal for students, researchers, and companies that want to prototype and test code on representative Internet hosts. Nodes running Seattle / Million Node GENI have diverse availability patterns, operating systems, and networks. The same code may easily be run on a variety of operating systems, architectures, and network environments in order to understand the performance and dynamics of realistic end users.
