EICT’s testbed consists of two nodes, i.e., a virtualization server that offers virtualized compute resources and an Open vSwitch which provides network resources using OpenFlow protocol. Open vSwitch software is running on a Linux machine which is also handles Open VPN connectivity to other islands. In addition, there is a third node that hosts management functions. This testbed is directly connected to three other islands in Europe through Open VPN connection over the public Internet. These islands are:
- iMinds (Belgium)
- PSNC (Poland)
- i2CAT (Spain)
Other FELIX islands are reached via the above islands.
