Additional information

Setting up a virtual machine in the cPouta Iaas cloud allows CSC customers to create and manage their own bioinformatics environments. This is useful especially in case of tools and services that need super-user access or that utilize features that are not available for normal users in Taito supercluster (typically running www or database servers).

This course day provides an introduction to the basic features of the cPouta cloud and demonstrates how a virtual bioinformatics server is set up in cPouta.


…is a weeks worth of courses assembled especially with bioscientists in mind. Participate in all of them, or just pick the ones you find most interesting!
