    2727== 2. Why should I use GENI? ==
    2828GENI might be right for you if your experiment requires:
    29   * ''More resources than would ordinarily be found in your lab.''  Since GENI is a suite of infrastructures it can potentially provide you with more resources than is typically found in any one laboratory.  GENI give you access to hundreds of widely distributed resources including compute resources, network resources including links, switches and !WiMax base stations.
    30   * ''Non-IP connectivity across resources.''  GENI allows you to set up Layer 2 connections between between compute resources and run your own Layer 3 and above protocols on these resources.
     29  * ''A large-scale experiment infrastructure''  GENI can potentially provide you with more resources than is typically found in any one laboratory.  GENI give you access to hundreds of widely distributed resources including compute resources such as virtual machines and "bare-machines" and network resources such as links, switches and !WiMax base stations.
     30  * ''Non-IP connectivity across resources.''  GENI allows you to set up Layer 2 connections between compute resources and run your own Layer 3 and above protocols connecting these resources.
     31  * ''Deep Programmability.'' WIth GENI you can program not only the end hosts of your experimental network but also the switches in the core of your network.  This allows you to experiment with novel network layer protocols or with novel IP-routing algorithms.
    3132  * ''Reproducibility.'' You can get exclusive access to certain GENI resources including CPU resources and network resources.  This gives you control over your experiment's environment and hence the ability for you and others to repeat experiments under identical or very similar conditions.
    32   * ''Instrumentation and Measurement tools.''  GENI has two instrumentation and measurement tool suites that you can use to instrument your experiments.
     33  * ''Instrumentation and Measurement tools.''  GENI has two instrumentation and measurement tool suites that you can use to instrument your experiments.  These tool suites provide probes for active and passive measurement, measurement data storage and tools for visualizing and analyzing measurement data.
