PlanetLab: From Testbed to Service Deployment Platform

Date and Time
Wednesday, December 9, 2009 - 4:30pm to 5:30pm
Computer Science Small Auditorium (Room 105)
CS Department Colloquium Series
Marc Fiuczynski, from Princeton Computer Science
PlanetLab was originally designed to be a realistic testbed for networking and distributed systems research. It has served that role quite well. More recently, however, it has also become a practical platform for rapidly deploying (and then effectively managing) network services that have value to a wide-range of user communities (and a diverse set of network environments).

This talk describes three such deployments: (1) providing web connectivity to remote villages and schools; (2) capturing gold-standard measurements of broadband connectivity in the US; and (3) supporting high-speed content distribution in a Telco access network.
