    7 An Orca deployment is a dynamic collection of interacting control servers (actors) that work together to provision and configure resources for each guest according to the policies of the partici- pants. The actors represent various stakeholders in the shared infrastructure: substrate providers, resource consumers (e.g., GENI experimenters), and brokering intermediaries that coordinate and federate substrate providers and offer their resources to a set of consumers.
