-ExoGENI racks' [[:public:hardware:start | hardware]] for the majority of the current generation racks is supplied by IBM and typically consists of 11 x3650M4 servers (one configured to be a head node, others as workers) with 6TB expandable ISCSI storage and two switches - an 8052 1G/10G management switch and an 8264 10G/40G OpenFlow-enabled dataplane switch. We intentionally selected 2U servers for improved expandability (to maintain our ability to install custom hardware, like NetFPGA10G, GPGPUs or experimental NICs). Compatible configurations from Dell and Cisco exist as well.+ExoGENI racks' [[:public:hardware:start | hardware]] for the majority of the current generation racks is supplied by IBM and typically consists of 11 x3650M4 servers (one configured to be a head node, others as workers) with 6TB expandable ISCSI storage and two switches - an 8052 1G/10G management switch and an 8264 10G/40G OpenFlow-enabled dataplane switch.
