We show how VIOLIN (friends.cs.purdue.edu/projects/violin/index.shtml) can be used for suspending and resuming GENI experiments. This project is part of the GENI-alpha demos planned for GEC9. Our demo shows starting an Emulab experiment, suspending it, and resuming it from a checkpoint. The suspend/resume feature can be used for various purposes including fault tolerance, resource management, and debugging.
