Why Use OpenGENI?

Painless Setup

OpenGENI provides a user-friendly, plug-and-play option for researchers who need supported access to the GENI network for experiments. As the first GENI rack to offer the new GENI Rack Aggregate Manager (GRAM), OpenGENI comes offers the advantage of simple setup. 

Time is Money

OpenGENI's pre-configured rack system includes all the hardware and software you need to get started on the GENI network. We know you have other priorities, so we eliminate the tedious setup process involved in creating your own GENI rack, to free you to focus on your work. OpenGENI is currently the only GENI rack which can be deployed as soon as it arrives on site.

Because you provide information about your location during the purchasing process, we configure OpenGENI specifically for your site location. When the rack arrives on site you just plug in the power and networking cables, and it is ready to go. This saves a huge amount of time, effort, and money on your part. 

Professional Support

OpenGENI racks include professional support from Dell and Omnibond. If you encounter problems with your system, help is available via phone and email. We let you focus on your work by helping resolve any problems quickly and painlessly.


All hardware is covered by Dell’s support team with 24/7 support, making it easy to replace or repair a piece of hardware in the unlikely event that something breaks.


If you have any problems with the software installed on the OpenGENI rack or any general questions about using the rack, Omnibond offers next business day support. The first year of support is included with an OpenGENI purchase and additional years are available.
