 +==== 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.
