InstaGENI Aggregate

University of Utah

This InstaGENI aggregate supports the GENI Aggregate Provider Agreement (06/20/2013).

InstaGENI 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 https://utah.geniracks.net:12369/protogeni/xmlrpc/am
Aggregate Manager URN urn:publicid:IDN+utah.geniracks.net+authority+cm
Aggregate Manager Common Name utah-ig
Aggregate Resources An InstaGENI aggregate includes 5 Hosts (3 VM Servers and 2 dedicated PCs) that can load experimenter specified OS images. Racks also support OpenFlow topologies, usually including extensions onto campus OpenFlow networks. Rack servers are HP ProLiant DL380 G7.
Typical Experiments InstaGENI 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.
Sample RSpecs http://groups.geni.net/geni/browser/trunk/GENIRacks/InstaGENI/Spiral5/RSpecs/ConfirmationTests/Utah
Aggregate Status Restricted access to monitoring at http://genimon.uky.edu and 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 Access to Internet2 is via Utah Educational Network (UEN).

Note: pc3 is a Xen Server. pc1 and pc5 are OpenVZ.

NOTE: OpenFlow resources at must be allocated at Utah Educational Network (UEN) to connect to the GENI core network.

OpenFlow over GENI Network Stitching

This rack supports running hardware OpenFlow experiments over stitched GENI network connections. Please be advised that the following restrictions apply:

  • Network stitching on the InstaGENI rack allocates and enforces link bandwidth, which cannot be modified by OpenFlow.
  • VLANs allocated to stitched connections on the rack cannot be modified, because InstaGENI rack switches operate in hybrid mode, preventing VLAN tag rewriting.

If you require some other type of dataplane connections for your OpenFlow experiment, please contact geni-users@googlegroups.com.
