Ennor is Gerstein Lab's OpenStack platform, with dedicated computational resources and software for launching cloud instances. Ennor is intended to be used for developing and prototyping Docker images. Docker images so-developed can then be installed on a fleet of Amazon instances for large, fast computes, or can be distributed alongside a paper to support reproducible research and tool ease of use.

How to use:

  • ==1. Contact Mihali Felipe, System Administrator to get access to OpenStack.
  • ==2. Launch an OpenStack instance from http://ennor.mbg.mbb.yale.internal/dashboard/project/instances/
