Current generation of ExoGENI racks built by IBM and are based on x3650 M4 servers with SandyBridge. They have the option to support 10/40 and 100G NICs. Current ExoGENI racks ship with 10G NICs. Each rack has a Layer 2 dataplane switch that has 10 and 40G uplinks, depending on the site (1G is also possible).
Expected power consumption is 10kW.

For cabling diagrams, please consult this document (note that GPO-funded racks come pre-cabled at the factory).
Each rack runs the software stack that allows ExoGENI sites to operate with each other and interoperate with other GENI testbeds.
Compatible hardware configurations are available from Dell and Cisco.
