Welcome to the ORCA-BEN Project

ORCA is a Control Framework to provision virtual networked systems via Secure and Distributed management of Heterogeneous Resources over Federated substrate sites and domains. It was originally developed by the NICL Lab at Duke University, and is currently being developed jointly with Duke University by the Networking Group at The Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI).

ORCA is the control framework for the ExoGENI testbed. ORCA is tightly integrated with OpenStack and Eucalyptus via special extensions to both for provisioning virtual machines. ORCA is also integrated with xCAT to support baremetal node provisioning. ORCA acts as a multi-layer dynamic network provisioning service for BEN optical network.
