Welcome to GENI ORCA Project

ORCA is a Control Framework to Secure and Efficient management of Heterogeneous Resource. Its goal is to simplify effective Compute, Network, and Storage resource allocation in a networked system over multiple domains.

Setting up ORCA

ORCA Software releases

ORCA releases are named after typical sites where whale watchers go to see live orca whales.

Future names: Bella, Camano, Dungeness, Eastsound, FourWinds

ORCA-BEN setup notes

An ORCA deployment on BEN is set up using the following notes:

ORCA Deployment will give you a detailed description of deploying ORCA system from existing Maven remote repository in RENCI, and run it in Emulation mode with 3 default actors defined: Broker, Service Manager, and Site Authority.

"Orca Development" contains notes regarding setting up Development Environment and developing new Components? for ORCA. One of the key concepts is Resource? description and delegation among different Stake Holders? with an efficient Security? mechanism.

Our Approach

We use NDL-OWL - a further development of the Network Description Language, for the BEN network resource description, slice requests and slice descriptors. We have extended the original NDL using OWL. We are also in the process of including more technologies into the NDL-OWL schema. We use a number of tools to create and manipulate NDL-OWL ontologies.

Project Management

Page template to use when specifying a new task

We plan to execute the project into multiple phases:

Phases II and on will involve slicing BEN in multiple dimensions, dynamic computation of slices and other capabilities.
