Node hardware

Information of the current deployment of Clommunity is given at our testbed page.

Hardware tested

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.

Community-lab extension

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:

Community Device CD Research Device (RD)
Community device Research device

A wired local network connects the research device with the community device, which acts as a router in the community network.

 Private community cloud desktop server data centre community cloud. (Not for cloudy but related services)  Data centre community cloud node </wrap>
