Sponsored by the National Science Foundation GENI Exploring Networks of the Future Now it’s getting interesting Chip Elliott July 21, 2010 www.geni.net
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation A deep debt of gratitude Thank you, thank you, thank you –Debbie Crawford –Ty Znati The GENI community owes you a deep debt of gratitude for your government service within NSF We tremendously appreciate everything you have done to help advance the GENI community and at-scale experimentation in the United States Now you can rest a little bit, but please don’t disappear!
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 3 July 21, 2010 Spiral Development GENI grows through a well-structured, adaptive process GENI Prototyping Plan Use Planning Design Build outIntegration Use GENI Spiral 2 Early experiments, meso-scale build, interoperable control frameworks, ongoing integration, system designs for security and instrumentation, definition of identity management plans. Envisioned ultimate goal Example: Planning Group’s desired GENI suite, probably trimmed some ways and expanded others. Incorporates large-scale distributed computing resources, high-speed backbone nodes, nationwide optical networks, wireless & sensor nets, etc. Spiral Development Process Re-evaluate goals and technologies yearly by a systematic process, decide what to prototype and build next.
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 4 July 21, 2010 Meso-scale buildout in Spiral 2 “GENI-enabled” US campuses and backbones
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 5 July 21, 2010 Enhancing the buildout in Spiral 3 Solicitation 3 deadline – August 20, 2010
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 6 July 21, 2010 Adding “GENI racks” in campuses and throughout net
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 7 July 21, 2010 Control framework interoperability via the GENI Aggregate Manager API 1.0 Spiral 1: tightly coupledNow: open & interoperable Each aggregate was tightly linked to exactly one cluster and control framework Control frameworks / Clearinghouses Aggregates “GENI AM API” lets you mix and match aggregates with control frameworks Control frameworks / Clearinghouses PlanetLab, ProtoGENI, OpenFlow are now interoperable – more to follow
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 8 July 21, 2010 GENI Alpha Demonstrations Major demos planned for GEC 9 –Many in this room are creating Alpha demos –They’re being shaken down across the national backbones, various campuses, and GPO lab –Many were demo’d last night –Those “ready for prime time” will be featured prominently at GEC 9 –Audience will include industry & government leaders GENI Alpha Demonstrations will highlight: –meso-scale experimentation –diversity of research infrastructure –interoperable GENI control frameworks Campus involvement will be showcased – please help!
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 9 July 21, 2010 News - GPO Lab is running Experiment resource pool –Modest collection of PlanetLab, ProtoGENI, OpenFlow, etc. –Open to GENI researchers –Relatively stable Shakedown point for meso-scale build –“Another end” for campus integrations –Accessible via I2, NLR, IP tunnels –Note: staff is stretched rather thin!
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 10 July 21, 2010 Instrumentation and measurement Architecture taking shape, implementations solicited 2nd I&M Workshop, June 2010
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 11 July 21, 2010 Experiments ! Shakedown experiments in progress –“The brave pioneers” News: GENI Experimenters Workshop –Co-chaired by Guru Parulkar and Jennifer Rexford –Held at Princeton, June 29-30 –54 researchers participated (pairs of prof + student) –Dozens of quick-turn proposals submitted to NSF –Likely outcome: excellent experimental research starts ramping up in late summer / early fall
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 12 July 21, 2010 A lively and interesting mix GENI Tutorials and Workshops Yesterday morning (Tuesday) –Ilia Baldine, Resource Representations in GENI –Nick Feamster, BGPmux tutorial –Justin Cappos, Seattle GENI tutorial –Rob Ricci, ProtoGENI tutorial Tomorrow afternoon (Thursday) –Brandon Heller, OpenFlow tutorial –Jon Turner, SPP tutorial –Steve Schwab, ABAC mini-workshop Want to give a tutorial? What are we missing?
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 13 July 21, 2010 Starting early operations Campus / OMIS Working Group discussions –Emergency stop (2 nd draft document) –Campus requirements (1 st draft document) –Security-related issues Other plans in the works –Concept of federated GENI operations
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 14 July 21, 2010 Looking forward to Spiral 3 Annual reviews this summer –Some trimming & retasking may occur –GENI’s general outline is becoming clearer –Think about how you might want to reorient your work Major trends in Spiral 3 –Rising number of live research experiments –Rapidly growing meso-scale build-out –Gradual transition to reliable operations –Continued creation & integration of tool sets
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 15 July 21, 2010 GENI Solicitation 3 Deadline – August 20, 2010 Solicitation areas 1.Aggressively grow meso-scale build 1.More regional & backbone sites 2.New “GENI Racks” (eg rack of PCs with GENI-enabled switch) 2.GENI Instrumentation system (build & deploy) 3.Operations / experiment support / training / education & curriculum development Suggestion: talk with us before writing your proposal! Want to join a team?? http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/Solicitation3FocusPoints
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 16 July 21, 2010 These are exciting times all around the world! ETRI NICTA The GENI project is actively collaborating with peer efforts outside the US, based on equality and arising from direct, “researcher to researcher” collaborations.
