How does noto work?
As illustrated by the diagram above, our infrastructure includes a JupyterHub in front of multiple JupyterLab backends. This architecture allows us to provide a service that scales up easily with large numbers of users. Noto interfaces with the other learning tools at EPFL, in particular moodle and MOOC platforms. Our servers are hosted at SWITCH. We can offer a more detailed presentation and/or a demonstration to interested parties upon simple request.
Please note that noto is dedicated to education and that other alternatives such as Renku may be more adapted to specialized or computing intensive tasks for research for instance.
