The ScienceApps platform is a web based application built for interactive computing. It provides users with a point-and-click, browser based portal to access ScienceCluster via a suite of interactive development environments. The following environments are available:
- Jupyter Notebooks (including the option for custom kernels)
Why would you need to use ScienceApps?
If you need to access S3IT infrastructure via a point-and-click graphical user interface that rapidly allows you to begin your coding work without the overhead of learning virtual machine management or batch system submission processes, the ScienceApps are a good place to start. Furthermore, if you use the ScienceCloud or ScienceCluster to perform heavy analytical work you can use the ScienceApps as a portal through which to view and/or visualize your outputs.
How to get access
To access the ScienceApps the same conditions apply as for ScienceCluster.
