GENI-VIOLIN: In-Network Snapshotting for GENI Experiments
GENI-VIOLIN's goal is to build an in-network snapshotting infrastructure for GENI experiments. This project is part of the GENI-alpha plenary session for GEC9. Current GENI experiments cannot be suspended/resumed, and often have to be restarted from the beginning, if failures occur in the infrastructure. GENI-VIOLIN solves this problem, by providing "live snapshot" capability to GENI experiments running in GENI slices for fault tolerance, debugging and slice management. GENI-VIOLIN provides the suspend/resume functionality to GENI experiments, with minimal disruption to application performance, while being completely transparent to the application and guest operating systems.
