Okay, assuming we are only going to allow Fedora clients:
The Fedora Trellis:
The 'open' grid supporting Fedora's growth.

If we are going to allow non-Fedora clients I would just call it The Trellis:
trellis (n)
1.  A structure of open latticework, especially one used as a support
for vines and other creeping plants.
