-==== Overview ====  
-ExoGENI control software supports a variety of vendors and options. The list of supported hardware grows continuously, please contact us to find out the latest. Each rack consists of a head node, some number (typically 10) worker nodes and, optionally a storage server or storage appliance.  
-Below are some of the established configurations of ExoGENI racks. Servers:   
-  * IBM M4 servers 
-  * Dell R7XX servers 
-  * Cisco UCS-B series 
-  * Cisco UCS-C series 
-Network adapters are 10Gbps Chelsio and Mellanox, some sites have 40G Mellanox adapters.  
-Supported storage options include (meaning this type of storage can be made user-sliverable):  
-  * IBM DS3512 or similar 
-  * Some variants of NetApp 
-  * Linux-based storage servers supporting partitionaing/virtualization based on either 
-    * LVM 
-    * ZFS 
-    * Gluster 
-Supported TOR network switches include: 
-  * IBM G8264  
-  * Dell S4810 
-  * Juniper QFX3500, EX3200 
-  * Cisco 3400, Nexus series 
-  * Ciena 8700 
-==== ExoGENI IBM Rack Details ==== 
-Current generation of ExoGENI racks built by IBM and are based on M4 servers. They have the option to support 10/40 and 100G NICs. Current ExoGENI racks ship with 10G Mellanox NICs (older variants also used Chelsio). 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. 
-Please use the links below to find the exact part numbers for ExoGENI racks based on IBM hardware. You can also visit [[:public:hardware:rack_layout |rack layout]] and click on individual components. Section [[:public:hardware:network:start | network ]] details the network connectivity options. 
-For cabling diagrams, please consult [[https://svn.exogeni.net/repos/config/diagrams/ExoGENI_Cabling_Diagrams.pdf | this document]] (note that GPO-funded racks come pre-cabled at the factory). 
-Each rack runs the [[:public:software:start | 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.
