Notebooks is a browser-based tool for interactive analysis of data using EGI storage and compute services. Notebooks is based on the JupyterHub technology.



Are you looking for a powerful and innovative tool for data analysis? EGI Notebooks is the perfect solution. This browser-based tool is designed to make interactive data analysis easy and accessible using EGI storage and compute services. With EGI Notebooks, you can combine text, mathematics, computations, and their rich media output using Jupyter technology.

Main features

Here are just a few reasons why EGI Notebooks is the best choice for all your data analysis needs:

  • Multiple Programming Languages: EGI Notebooks supports multiple programming languages, including Julia, Python, R, Octave, and MATLAB
  • Cloud Compute Service: EGI Notebooks can scale to multiple servers and users with the Cloud Compute. This means you can work on large datasets and complex computations with ease without worrying about server capacity
  • Easy to Use: You don’t need any specialised knowledge to use the service
  • Two options to choose from: Whether you’re an individual researcher or a scientific community, EGI Notebooks has you covered. Our basic instance is an open service that anyone can access. And for scientific communities, we offer customised instances hosted on special hardware (for example, with fat nodes and GPUs), and custom libraries, data import/export, and user authentication systems.

EGI boosts D4Science’s data infrastructure with advanced analysis solutions

Since 2014, D4Science has been at the forefront of providing robust data infrastructure,  connecting thousands of scientists worldwide and integrating diverse data sources. With a staggering capacity of over 3,650 CPU cores and a thriving user base of 18,000 scientists from 50 countries, D4Science has fostered over 175 Virtual Research Environments (VREs) for scientific communities across the globe.
In this remarkable journey, EGI has played a pivotal role, supporting D4Science researchers with specialised data analysis solutions through EGI Notebooks. Powered by Jupyter technology, EGI Notebooks seamlessly blend text, mathematics, computations, and rich media output, enabling scalability across multiple servers and users. The collaboration with  D4Science has provided EGI with valuable input from scientific communities and driven the technological evolution of the EGI Notebooks service. Today, it is one of the most demanded EGI services, providing advanced data analysis capabilities.
