PlanetLab: an overlay testbed for broad-coverage services


PlanetLab is a global overlay network for developing and accessing broad-coverage network services. Our goal is to grow to 1000 geographically distributed nodes, connected by a disverse collection of links. PlanetLab allows multiple service to run concurrently and continuously, each in its own slice of PlanetLab. This paper discribes our initial implementation of PlanetLab, including the mechanisms used to impelment virtualization, and the collection of core services used to manage PlanetLab.
