iLauncher provides a streamlined graphical interface to start interactive applications — such as Jupyter, Spark, RStudio, and TensorFlow — on DoD High Performance Computers (HPC).
iLauncher walks the user through logging in (via Kerberos and CAC/Yubikey), checking on HPC status, submitting the job, and securely routing the application’s UI back over SSH to the user’s browser.
► Users new to HPCs and/or PBS
► Users unfamiliar with the command line
► Users wanting to quickly start interactive applications without fiddling with SSH reverse tunnels, PBS, and application containers
