General Information about HPC JupyterHub
The HPC JupyterHub service at the ITC from the RWTH allows all users of the RWTH Compute Cluster to utilize the existing compute hardware interactively using Jupyter Notebooks through the JupyterLab interface.
All users that have access to the RWTH Compute Cluster also have access to the HPC JupyterHub service using their existing credentials and quotas.
Initial prototype phase
The HPC JupyterHub is currently in an initial prototype phase that has limited functionality that is being continuously expanded.
JupyterLab Profiles allow users to run predefined software packages with Jupyter Notebooks.
There is a limited amount of JupyterLab Profiles with kernels and Jupyter Notebooks to choose from, but more can be added on demand. For this purpose, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
What are JupyterHub, JupyterLab and Jupyter Notebooks?
- JupyterHub is the Server that lets users log-in and use Jupyter Notebooks through the interactive JupyterLab interface. It manages the JupyterLab instances.
- A Jupyter Notebook is a human-readable document that can be used for programming, data analysis, descriptions and creation of results like figures, tables, etc..
- JupyterLab is a web interface (UI) with access to a Linux terminal, a files browser, environment and editor for notebooks in many programming languages.
It is recommended that users become familiar with the interface of JupyterLab to use the HPC JupyerHub service.
