These resources are operated and supported by the DETER team at at the University of Southern California’s Information Sciences Institute – in Los Angeles and Arlington, VA – and the University of California at Berkeley.
DETERLab’s facilities include:
- Various local area network infrastructure elements and options at DETERLab locations
- Wide area networking between locations
- Ability to integrate one or more third-party network and computing facilities into experiments on-demand.
- Nodes that may be configured in a variety of ways with any of several existing operating system and application software stacks, virtual machine monitors, VMs, network emulation elements, and network simulators.
- A gatekeeper that protects the Internet-facing side of the testbed and controls access to the private network
- Local and remote access to the node console by testbed users, who have the ability to power cycle a node if it hangs.
To create nodes in an experiment's network, these computing facilities are currently available:
Over 700 high-capacity multi-core server nodes:
- 500 nodes at Los Angeles, CA
- 200 nodes at Berkeley, CA
