PlanetLab is engaged in a federation trial with the OneLab Project. The plan is to migrate European nodes and slices to an independent EU authority. Follow the federation link to learn more.


PlanetLab is in the early stages of federation. This means forking off autonomous authorities that are responsible for a subset of the global slices and nodes. These authorities will then peer with each other to build a federated system.
