This effort will integrate additional projects with the ProtoGENI control framework (Cluster C). This work will support the activities of the Utah ProtoGENI team toward this goal. This proposal will provide new Cluster C projects with the software, standards, and technical assistance required to integrate their projects into the ProtoGENI control framework, and to refine the design of ProtoGENI to make smooth integration possible. These projects span a wide range of the GENI ecosystem, including international collaboration, instrumentation and measurement, hybrid environments involving multiple network technologies, early experiments, and aggregate deployments of sliceable networks, routers, storage, and hosts. The project will also support researchers running experiments on ProtoGENI.

Links to wiki pages about details of infrastrcture that the project is using (if any). Examples include IP addresses, hostnames, URLs, DNS servers, local site network maps, VLANIDs (if permanent VLANs are used), pointers to public keys. GPO may do first drafts of any of these and have the PI correct them to bootstrap. May also include ticket links for pending or known connectivity issues. Many projects will have a full tree of wiki pages here.
