Welcome to the GENI-ORCA Project

ORCA is a Control Framework to provision virtual networked systems via Secure and Efficient management of Heterogeneous Resources over multiple substrate sites and domains. It was originally developed by the NICL Lab at Duke University, and has lately been joined by the Networking Group at The Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI).

GENI-ORCA is currently funded by the GENI Project Office, as one of the control framework prototypes for GENI, and the flagship project of Cluster D.
