GEC 10 GENICloud/iGENI/GLab/Seattle Demonstration

This page is a description of the joint demonstration of GENICloud/iGENI/GLab/Seattle projects at GEC-10

Overall Concept and Goal

The goal of this demonstration is to show the interoperation of multiple clouds managed by the GENICloud manager, with advanced connectivity provided by iGENI, a programming environment provided by Seattle, and an application largely written by GLab. The clouds will be provided by Northwestern University, HP Labs, GLab participants. It is hoped that others will also provide cloud resources. Finally, we would like the selected application to be visually compelling and useful to the community.

Initial Plan (Strawman)

Intercontinental MapReduce on distributed Internet repository data. This was one idea that came out of the Brussels Workshop on EU/US collaboration in Internet research. Failing this (the key here will be getting hold of the respositories), we will start with an intercontinental TeraSort. Note that this plan is subject to veto, but we need to converge on a demo plan very quickly (by mid-December).

Please feel free to change this -- this is something to get us started, not dictate what we're going to do. If we follow this, the plan should look something like this:
