EGI Notebooks is a browser-based tool for interactive analysis of data using EGI storage and compute services. Notebooks is based on the JupyterHub technology.
This service can combine text, mathematics, computations and their rich media output using Jupyter technology, and can scale to multiple servers and users with the Cloud Compute service.
Notebooks is offered in two options:
- Notebooks for researchers: EGI offers a basic instance of the Notebooks as an open service. Any researcher can access this automatically to write and play notebooks on limited capacity cloud servers.
- Notebooks for communities: EGI offers customised Notebooks service to scientific communities. Such customised instances can be hosted on special hardware (for example with fat nodes and GPUs), can offer special libraries, data import/export and user authentication systems..
