Title Helix Project Testbed: Towards the Self-Regenerative Incorruptible Enterprise.

Abstract As part of an AFOSR-sponsored MURI Initiative (BAA 06-028, Topic: Self-Regenerative Incorruptible Enterprise, Program Manager: Dr. Herklotz, 2007-2012), our team is realizing and refining the Helix vision of a self- regenerative architecture to protect enterprise-wide networked information systems. The funds were used to purchase and set up a Helix distributed testbed (HDT) consisting of servers, desktops, laptops, and mobile devices. The two primary and complementary goals of the HDT are: (1) to provide an enabling infrastructure to directly support our research and educational activities, and (2), to provide a realistic live testbed on which to prototype and evaluate the novel capabilities developed by the various research thrusts. We have purchased three rack-mounted multicore systems. Together with similar systems hosted at the other three teams on the same MURI project, they were aggregated to form the computational and storage backbone of the HDT the data center or cloud concept and provide services to the enterprise. In addition, we have purchased several lightweight mobile Internet devices (tablets, cell phones, smartphones, consumer-grade Internet devices) and projection devices to model the various access and presentation modalities by which enterprise-wide information will be accessed and manipulated. We anticipate that web-based technology, e.g., mashups, browsers and other clients, web and application servers, will become prevalent throughout the enterprise. We have set up the testbed so that researchers that participate in Helix-related research activities have access to the resources across four sites, and have the ability to reserve a large fraction of the testbed for controlled at-scale experiments.
