    3 This is the final report on the conclusions and results of the [wiki:PlasticSlices Plastic Slices] project, which ran ten GENI slices continously over a period of three months, in order to gain experience managing and operating production-quality GENI resources, and to discover and record issues that early experimenters are likely to encounter. Our conclusions are that mesoscale GENI is generally ready for operations with more experimenters, that GENI software is mostly ready to use in a production-quality environment, that GENI experiments are somewhat isolated from each other, and that GENI is easy to use at a simple level but more challenging to use for more complex purposes. All of these areas need continuing improvement, and we make suggestions for ways to do that. The report also includes more details about the environment, experiments, baselines, and tools we used, and further discussion of some of the results that highlight the ways in which GENI is a unique research environment.  More details are available at [http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/PlasticSlices].
     3This is the final report on the conclusions and results of the [wiki:PlasticSlices Plastic Slices] project.  This project ran ten GENI slices continously in a nationwide infrastructure that included eight campuses over a period of three months, in order to gain experience managing and operating production-quality GENI resources, and to discover and record issues that early experimenters likely would encounter. We conclude that mesoscale GENI is generally ready for operations with more experimenters, that GENI software is mostly ready to use in a production-quality environment, that GENI experiments are somewhat isolated from each other, and that GENI is easy to use initially, but more challenging to use for complex experiments. All of these areas need continuing improvement, and we make suggestions for ways to do that. The report also includes more details about the environment, experiments, baselines, and tools we used, and further discussion of some of the results highlighting ways in which GENI is a unique research environment.  More details are available at [http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/PlasticSlices].
