Atlassian | GitLab | Jupyter
|SCF (links only work on SCF)
Details about the LC Atlassian Suite, including plug-ins, can be found on LC Confluence.
More information about the Atlassian Tool offerings at LLNL can be found at: https://atlassian.llnl.gov
GitLab is an all-in-one platform for source control, issue tracking, continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD), and much more. GitLab makes it easy to test your code against LC hardware either as small tests on login nodes or larger runs in the batch system. For more information, log in to see LC's GitLab documentation.
A Jupyter notebook is a web application for creating and sharing documents that contain code, visualizations, and text. It can be used for data science, statistical modeling, machine learning, and much more. JupyterHub is a tool for launching multiple Jupyter notebooks as different users. Changes were made to the default JupyterHub in order to launch Jupyter Notebooks that adhere to LC security policies. That said, only launch notebooks through the LC JupyterHub deployment located at /jupyter, not on your own.

Common ways of working "in the cloud" include connecting to platforms like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Compute Engine. In using cloud services, users typically connect to remote data centers over the internet. One of the benefits of using these platforms is that users can access the infrastructure they need on demand, without needing to maintain hardware and environments that may sit around unused for much of the time.
At LC, we want to keep your data secure in our multi-tenant environment, and we also want to ensure you have access to technologies that are commonly used in the cloud. To this end, we've begun to support software and services like containers, object storage, database and broker services, and a few workflow tools built atop those services. These services are orchestrated by OpenShift which is built upon Kubernetes.

FIS: File Transfer to iSRD / iSNSI
LC supports one way link (OWL) connections that allow one way transfers from the unclassified (EN, CZ, RZ) to the classified networks (iSNSI, iSRD) at LLNL. Full instructions can be found at: hpc.llnl.gov/documentation/user-guides/using-lc-file-interchange-service-fis
Green Data Oasis
For more information about sharing your data with collaborators, check out our Green Data Oasis pages.
There is a Python package wheelhouse supported by Ian Lee that lives in /usr/gapps/python/wheelhouse. More information can be found on the Python Wheelhouse at LLNL page on MyConfluence.
Web Content Directories
LC provides web page hosting for CGI based web pages which can be hosted from either the lc.llnl.gov and rzlc.llnl.gov websites. These allow developers to create webpages that more complex than a simple Lorenz Portlet in MyLC.
