    NIRD Service Platform - Service description

    The NIRD Service Platform is a Kubernetes based infrastructure, to run several types of services and software, such as web-services, domain and community specific portals, tools for data visualization, data discovery and data sharing. The services run in containers to ensure high portability of the tools and reproducibility of the results (es: the tools running on the NIRD Service Platform can easily be exported and run on Amazon Cloud or on Google Cloud).  

    With the NIRD Service Platform you can run your favorite tools/portals/codes to analyze and visualize massive data stored on NIRD, in place, without moving data. On the NIRD Service Platform a project can have a dedicated login container, a virtual environment to run data intensive pre-/post-processing analysis without queuing system and moving data. The login containers can be customized with tools specific to the project and can be powered with virtual CPUs, RAM and eventually GPUs. 

    Hardware information

    On-demand data analytics services, such as AI/ML algorithm, JupyterHub and Jupyter Notebook are also available on the NIRD Service Platform through the NIRD Toolkit, a research platform to click-and-install such tools when you need them just in a few clicks.

    What services does NIRD Toolkit offer? 

    Apache Spark
    RStudio
    Jupyter
    JupyterHub
    MinIO
    Deep Learning Tools

    The NIRD Toolkit can be enriched with even more tools. If your favorite tool is not yet offered by the NIRD Toolkit, please contact Sigma2.

  • Who can get access?

    NIRD Service Platform - Who can get access?

    All users having access to NIRD Data Storage can deploy services on the NIRD Service Platform. If you are a Norwegian university staff member and do not have a NIRD project, send an application through the application form.

  • Conditions for access

    NIRD Service Platform - Conditions for access

    Access to the services running on the NIRD Service Platform depends on the specific service: 

    • Access to login containers is restricted to the members of the NIRD project. 

    • Access policy to the portal/web-services is decided by the users who have requested the service: might be restricted to user’s groups or openly accessible through web User Interface. 

    For more information on how to run your services on the NIRD Service Platform, please contact us.

    Services launched through the NIRD Toolkit can also be accessed by external users added to the FEIDE group associated with the launched service. More information about FEIDE groups can be found here. The project leader/executive officer can authorize other members of the NSxxxxK group to deploy NIRD Toolkit applications, by managing the group in DataPorten. Once the application is deployed, all the members of selected “Authorised groups” can use the application.
