Getting Started

New Account Notifications

When your account is provisioned, you will receive two emails

  1. Someone on the Fluid Numerics team will notify you that your account has been created.

  2. An automated email will be sent from Google Workspace asking you to reset your password.

You will need to follow the directions in the second email to set a secure password for your account.

Fluid-HPC App

Once you have set your password with your fluidnumerics.cloud account, you will need to download the Fluid-HPC app for iOS or Android, or go to the desktop version of the app. When logging in, you will need to use your fluidnumerics.cloud account; this app is restricted to fluidnumerics.cloud users.

Add SSH Keys

Access to your managed HPC cluster is authenticated using SSH Keys. Before you can log in to the cluster, you will need to add at least one SSH key to your profile. You can use the Fluid-HPC app to keep track of your account information and to manage your SSH keys.

To add SSH Keys

  1. Navigate to the SSH Keys page

  2. Click the "+" symbol to add an ssh key.

  3. Copy the contents of an OpenSSH compliant public SSH Key into the "ssh key" field (Do not post your private key!) . Give the key a unique name in the "Key Name" field. Click "Save" when you are done.

Log in to the cluster

Once you have added an SSH key to your account, you can try logging into the cluster. The cluster's address is found on the "Clusters" page of the Fluid-HPC app.

If you have been assigned the account "someone@fluidnumerics.cloud", your username on the cluster is "someone", and you can ssh with

ssh someone@LOGIN-IP
