Sponsored by the National Science Foundation GENI Welcome ! GENI Engineering Conference 10 San Juan, Puerto Rico Chip Elliott March 16, 2011
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 2 March 16, 2011 GENI Engineering Conferences Meet every 4 months to review progress together GEC 10: THANK YOU to everyone involved! GEC 11: July 26 – 29, Chicago With many thanks to Dr. Joe Mambretti! Subsequent Meetings, open to all who fit in the room –Held at regular 4-month periods; see GENI Wiki for dates / places –Geographic rotation through US (central, east, west) –Held on / near university campuses – volunteers? –Travel grants for participant diversity (US academics only)
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 3 March 16, 2011 Our deepest sympathy
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 4 March 16, 2011 Dr. Carlos J. Gonzalez, Dean, College of Engineering and Geomatic Sciences, Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico Dr. Carlos Cabrera Asst. Vice President for Research and Technology, University of Puerto Rico Graciela Narcho CISE Deputy Assistant Director (Acting), National Science Foundation Welcomes
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation GENI Introduction to Plenary Session GENI Engineering Conference 10 San Juan, Puerto Rico Chip Elliott March 16, 2011
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 6 March 16, 2011 GENI is out of its start-up phase, and now growing rapidly Substantially ramp up research experimentation –Expand from today’s 20 experiment teams –Support experimenters via training, course materials, summer camps, and help desk –Transition to reliable operations Enhance the growing meso-scale GENI –Increase number of GENI-enabled campuses –Enhance build-outs in campuses and backbones –GENI-enable 5-6 regional networks –Deploy GENI-racks throughout US Begin to grow from meso-scale to “at scale” GENI
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 7 March 16, 2011 Farewell to the old working groups New GEC format focuses on “ramp up” Experimenters Campus / Ops Software This format is an experiment – we can revise as needed GENI Thank you, O long suffering, hard working, Working Group Chairs!
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 8 March 16, 2011 Programmatics Solicitation 3 –Expected announcement – Summer 2011 –Excellent proposals for GENI-racks, enhanced WiMAX, regionals, and backbones –Plus funding for tutorials, “summer camps”, etc. Ramp down of Solicitation 1 efforts (autumn) –Some prototyping efforts will sunset as Sol 1 funds run out –Many will continue under Sol 2 / 3 funding –Others have funds remaining, will receive extensions Annual evaluations coming again (summer) –Reminder: these are engineering subcontracts, not grants –Assess progress against project milestones –May shift funding from under-performers to strong efforts
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 9 March 16, 2011 Growing to the “at scale” GENI Suggest US campuses as target for “at scale” –Both academia and national labs –GENI-enable the campuses –Their students, faculty, staff can then “live in the future” using both today’s Internet and many experiments –Build out backbones, regionals, and shared clouds to support the campuses Grow via ongoing spiral development –Identify, understand, and drive down risks –Learn what is useful and what is not –Early GENI campuses can help later ones Transition to community governance
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 10 March 16, 2011 GEC 10 – Important Engineering Decisions We must make important engineering decisions now to be ready for “at scale” GENI –These will be “Rev 1.0” decisions, –Not fixed in concrete, but required to create real system –We are now ready, both in terms of discussions and experience Please participate in the decision-making –Substantive community proposals have been distributed –Software: Identity & attributes, authorization, resource descriptions (rspecs), inter-aggregate stitching –Operations: basic agreements on GENI participation This is a major step forward for GENI: “Rough consensus and running code”!
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 11 March 16, 2011 GEC 10 Plenary Talks Ramping up research experimentation NSF’s Future Internet Architectures (FIA) projects –XIA: Prof. Peter Steenkiste, CMU –MobilityFirst: Ivan Seskar, Rutgers BGP Mux: Vytautas Valancius DFG-NSF Doctoral Consortium –German-US doctoral students collaborating on research –Prof. Paul Müller, University of Kaiserslautern & Prof. Michael Zink, Umass Amherst US-German “GENIcloud” demonstration –Justin Cappos, Joe Mambretti, Rick McGeer, et al.
