Introduction to Open OnDemand (OOD)

Open OnDemand (OOD) is a web portal to the Discovery cluster. A Discovery account is necessary for you to access OOD. If you need an account, see Request an account.

OOD provides you with a number of resources for interacting with the Discovery cluster:

  • Launch a terminal that runs within your web browser without needing a separate terminal program. This is an advantage if you use Windows, as otherwise you need to download and use a separately installed program, such as MobaXterm.
  • Use software applications, such as SAS Studio, that run in your browser without needing any further configuration.
  • View, download, copy, and delete files using the File Explorer feature.

If you already have an account, see Using OOD’s Interactive Apps for how to access and use OOD.
