Access to the remote visualisation service requires Linux as operative system.
Access to the service requires users to have a granted project storage area or a access to one of the high-performance computing resources.
Denne tjenesten er forbeholdt statlige universiteter og høgskoler.
Users request the installation of an appropriate visualisation software on the data infrastructure. Currently only Linux software is accepted, so Windows based tools are not supported yet.
The following visualisation tools are already available:
Users must install a vnc client (https://sourceforge.net/projects/turbovnc) to connect to the servers, and start using their software to visualise data.
All data remain locally on the servers. Only a video stream is sent to the client, allowing a seamless visualisation of large datasets even with a low-bandwidth connection and a device equipped with a low-level graphics card.
UNINETT Sigma2 AS manages the national infrastructure for computational science in Norway and offers services in high performance computing and data storage.
