Add more description about types of resources


As of March 2011, the criteria for production resources are:

  1. The project has agreed to grant resource access to GENI researchers who comply with local site access policies.
  2. The project has agreed to keep the resource available on a best-effort basis (no guarantees).
  3. GENI researchers have successfully used the resource previously.

These criteria will evolve as GENI deployments become more mature.

Many other resources in GENI are also available, but may require special arrangements with the PI. You can browse the full list of GENI aggregates and currently active GENI projects in Spiral 3 to find all existing and developing GENI resources.

Experimenters can also use production resources exercised regularly as part of the Tango GENI project by contacting


The following resources are currently considered to be production; the link in the Resource column points to the resource's aggregate info page (many of which are still forthcoming).
