-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 [[:public:hardware:start | **Dell, Cisco and Ciena**]] 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.
