Services for the European Open Science Cloud

The EGI Notebooks service: Support for analytics and big data visualisation in the cloud

When: 
Thursday, May 7, 2020 - 14:00 to 15:00
Description: 

The EGI Notebooks service is an environment based on Jupyter and the EGI cloud service that offers a browser-based, scalable tool for interactive data analysis. The notebooks environment provides users with notebooks where they can combine text, mathematics, computations and rich media output. The service, in production since late 2019, it 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.

Learning goal: 

During the webinar Enol will go through the main features of the EGI Notebooks service and he will explain how to use it with Binder and other open-source solutions to implement Open Science. 

Target audience:
Scientific communities, for programmers and IT-service providers who support research and education.
