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.

Use Cases

► Users new to HPCs and/or PBS

► Users unfamiliar with the command line
and/or SSH.

► Users wanting to quickly start interactive applications without fiddling with SSH reverse tunnels, PBS, and application containers

What our clients have to say…

Before using iLauncher, visualizing my data on the HPC machines was a tedious process, so it really has been a game changer for me. iLauncher is an awesome tool that greatly enhances my productivity
