GEaNT virtUalisation Service


This is the home of the GENUS project (GEANT GN3 JRA1-T4 Activity)

Network virtualisation provides the basis for the so-called Network as a Service (NaaS). The concept behind NaaS is analogous to the widespread IaaS: provide the consumer with simple but powerful tools to use and operate the infrastructure resources, together with attractive rates and payment models (e.g. pay as you go). Unfortunately, NaaS is lagging behind, mainly due to the lack of flexible and automated commercial services such as lambdas, Ethernet and IP services. It is in order to alleviate this fact that JRA1 Task 4 is creating a mechanism for federated virtualised networks called GÉaNt virtUalisation Service (GENUS).
