We encountered problems with our infrastructure for several hours starting at about 4:25pm on Friday. The issues are now resolved. Your batch jobs may or may not have been impacted. See this email for details. Last Updated Friday, Apr 19 08:12 pm 2024

Open OnDemand Preview

We are making Open OnDemand available as a "technology preview" (it's not quite "beta" status yet) at https://ondemand.rc.byu.edu. Open OnDemand makes it easy to run certain applications in a graphical manner. Open OnDemand will launch a job on a compute node and you will be presented with the graphical interface of that application. You can also upload and download files through Open OnDemand's web interface.

Currently supported applications:

  • Gaussview
  • JupyterLab
  • MATLAB
  • Stata
  • VS Code

Documentation is currently non-existent and we may rearrange and reword various items. Things might break during this technology preview phase.

If you would like to try out Open OnDemand, please do so and let us know how it goes. We would like to hear about problems, missing features, as well as any comments about how useful this might be to you or your colleagues. We will consider adding additional applications depending on demand.

If you want a full graphical desktop, you can still use FastX.
