    88== Do I want to use GENI for my experiment? ==
    99
    10 We hope so.  Take a look at the "Why GENI?" section of the [wiki:ExperimenterPortal Experimenter's Portal] to help you decide.

    1212== What resources are available through GENI? ==
    1313
    14 GENI resources include a variety of computational and network assets, all programmable by experimenters.  Resources are made available to experimenters by GENI ''aggregates''.  The [wiki:ExperimenterPortal Experimenter's Portal] has more information in its "An Experimenter's View of GENI" and "GENI Aggregates" sections.

    1616== There's a lot of stuff in GENI.  How do I decide what to use? ==
     
    2424Yes.  Access comes in two varieties.  Depending on the resources you will be using, you may use either or both types of access.
    2525
    26 1. GENI provides a common interface that lets you reserve resources from many aggregates using a common set of credentials, and a common API (the Aggregate Manager or AM API).  In addition, GENI experimenter tools may be helpful to you as you use these aggregates.
     261. '''Using GENI credentials'''. GENI provides a common interface that lets you reserve resources from many aggregates using a common set of credentials, and a common API (the Aggregate Manager or AM API).  In addition, GENI experimenter tools may be helpful to you as you use these aggregates. Look [wiki:#HowdoIgetaGENIcredential here] for instructions on how to get a GENI account(credentials).

    28 2. Aggregates that do not accept GENI credentials have their own specific access policies.  Send us mail at [mailto:help@geni.net] for assistance.
     282. '''Aggregate-specific accounts". Aggregates that do not accept GENI credentials have their own specific access policies.  Send us mail at [mailto:help@geni.net] for assistance.
