Quickstart an application

The easiest to get started with the DSRI is to use the predefined templates to deploy an application.

Access the catalog#

  1. Access the templates catalog in your project:
Access catalog
  1. Filter the templates catalog to only see data science applications:
Filter templates catalog
Enable more applications in your catalog

You might wonder why do you see less templates in your project? Because templates need to be earned! ๐Ÿ†

Get started with deploying, and using a service on the DSRI, then we will be able to give you access to more advanced uses of the DSRI!

Start an application using a template#

Root permission required

๐Ÿ”’ You will need root containers (aka. anyuid) to have been enabled by the DSRI team to be able to start applications with the root user.

Click on the template of the application you want to start, in this example we will use RStudio, but you can easily try the same with VisualStudio Code and JupyterLab.

You can view this 1 minute video to guide you through the process to get the storage name, then to start, and access a RStudio application:

  1. Go to the Add and select the template From Catalog
  2. Instantiate Template
  3. Fill the details in template wizard such as application name , password
  4. Click Create
  5. You can find the application URL from Routes under the Resources tab.
Filter templates catalog
  1. Provide a few informations to configure your application:
Filter templates catalog
  1. Click on the Create button.
Application started

Your application is starting on the DSRI! Go back to your project Topology page to find it! It can take from a few seconds up to a few minutes to deploy ๐Ÿ•

Stop your application#

When you are not using your application anymore you can stop the pod. If you are using a Dynamic or Persistent storage you can restart the pod and continue working with all your data in the same state as you left it.

Do not waste resources

Please think of stopping applications you are not using to avoid consuming unnecessary resources.

On the Topology page click on the down arrow โฌ‡๏ธ next to the number of pods deployed.

Scale down pod

You can then restart the pod by clicking the up arrow โฌ†๏ธ
