This paper reports our experiences building PlanetLab over
the last four years. It identifies the requirements that shaped
PlanetLab, explains the design decisions that resulted from resolving
conflicts among these requirements, and reports our experience
implementing and supporting the system. Due in large part to the
nature of the "PlanetLab experiment," the discussion focuses on
synthesis rather than new techniques, balancing system-wide
considerations rather than improving performance along a single
dimension, and learning from feedback from a live system rather than
controlled experiments using synthetic workloads.
