Open OnDemand

Open OnDemand Logo

Open OnDemand is an NSF -funded (#1534949), open-source HPC portal developed by OSC, based upon the Center’s original OnDemand portal. The goal of Open OnDemand is to provide an easy way for system administrators to provide web access to their HPC resources.

The 1.0 version of Open OnDemand, launched in September 2017, includes the ability to launch interactive HPC desktop sessions with the new dashboard “batch connect” plugin, support for Portable Batch System Professional’s (PBS Pro) workload manager and job scheduler software and partial support for IBM’s Load Sharing Facility (LSF) 9.1 workload management platform.

Going forward, OSC is interested in adding support for additional popular apps, such as Jupyter, RStudio, COMSOL Server, MATLAB, Paraview, ANSYS and Abaqus.
