     45== Scope ==
     47This project will develop a complete environment for researchers to conduct data-intensive experiments in GENI from start (the data collection point) to finish (processing and archiving). [[BR]]
     49To do so, this project will extend the GENI/ViSE sensor network (sensornet) testbed at UMass-Amherst and augment GENI Cluster D’s Orca control framework with capabilities for researchers to
     50 (i) obtain data-centric slices that span core sensornet nodes, data center nodes, and, importantly, storage volumes “in the cloud,” [[BR]]
     51 (ii) deploy popular cloud computing programming paradigms to enable simple, but powerful, distributed data processing, and [[BR]]
     52 (iii) execute experiment workflows to explicitly control experiment data flow and resource allocation across a network of components/aggregates. [[BR]]
     54The project will build on existing software artifacts in the GENI “ecosystem” and tailor them to the distinct requirements of data-intensive experiments.  While the enhanced software artifacts will generalize to any high-bandwidth data-intensive experiments, the GENI/ViSE sensornet testbed, which collects high-bandwidth data from multiple high-power (virtualized) sensor/actuators, will be the initial data source. [[BR]]
     56Our goal by year one is to incorporate commercial cloud computing  services, including storage services, as GENI substrates available for researchers. [[BR]]
     58Our goal by year two is to enhance GENI’s usefulness by testing and hardening the capability for researchers to request (or load) distributed software platforms on commercial clouds. We will demonstrate the capability using both an MPI stack and Apache’s Hadoop framework, an open-source version of MapReduce and Google File System (GFS).[[BR]]
     60Our goal by year three is to complete the integration of Gush to discover resources and deploy experiment workflows across data-centric slices in the Orca CF.[[BR]]
