Chameleon is an NSF-funded testbed system for computer science experimentation. It is designed to be deeply reconfigurable, with a wide variety of capabilities for researching systems, networking, distributed and cluster computing, and security.

Chameleon is free to use for computer systems and networking researchers and would be a great place to deploy your next research experiments.
