Information of the current deployment of Clommunity is given at our testbed page.
Apart from the Community-lab nodes, we tested different hardware to install on it the community cloud software and to connect it directly to a community device (i.e. the community network node). We divide this hardware into three groups depending on their characteristics.
Below a table with the specifications of the different devices used.

A community cloud node extends the basic Community-Lab node by adding more services to such a community device, to become a private cloud.
A basic Community-Lab node consists of two devices:
A wired local network connects the research device with the community device, which acts as a router in the community network.
