ExoGENI Aggregate

Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI)

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

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 Manager URL Compute Aggregate: https://rci-hn.exogeni.net:11443/orca/xmlrpc
Aggregate Manager URN urn:publicid:IDN+exogeni.net:rcivmsite+authority+am
Aggregate Manager Common Name renci-eg
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.
Aggregate Status Operational monitoring not widely available, restricted access to monitoring at GMOC
Slice Authorities Recognized GENI Portal (https://portal.geni.net), ProtoGENI (http://www.emulab.net)
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 NLR's FrameNet service. Each site has statically provisioned Vlans that provide connectivity back to RENCI. Inter-rack slices are stitched together at RENCI to enable multi-site, multi-point topologies.
