Open Cirrus TM Cloud Computing Testbed: Federated Data Centers for Open Source Systems and Services Research Roy Campbell, Indranil Gupta, Michael Heath, Steven Y. Ko, Michael Kozuch, Marcel Kunze, Thomas Kwan, Kevin Lai, Hing Yan Lee, Martha Lyons, Dejan Milojicic, David O'Hallaron, Yeng Chai Soh HP Laboratories HPL- 2009-134 Abstract: There are a number of important and useful testbeds, such as PlanetLab, EmuLab, IBM/Google cluster, and Amazon EC2/S3, that enable researchers to study different aspects of distributed computing. However, no single testbed supports research spanning systems, applications, services, open-source development, and datacenters. Towards this end, we have developed Open Cirrus, a cloud computing testbed for the research community that federates heterogeneous distributed data centers. Open Cirrus offers a cloud stack consisting of physical and virtual machines, and global services, such as sign-on, monitoring, storage, and job submission. By developing the testbed and making it available to the research community, we hope to help spur innovation in cloud computing and catalyze the development of an open source stack for the cloud.

Introduction There is growing interest in cloud computing within the systems and applications research communities. However, systems researchers often find it difficult to do credible work without access to large-scale distributed datacenters. Application researchers could also benefit from being
