Spin is a container-based platform at NERSC designed for you to deploy your own science gateways, workflow managers, databases, API endpoints, and other network services to support your scientific projects. Services in Spin are built with Docker containers and can easily access NERSC systems and storage.
For more general information, see the Spin web page.
Users must have an active NERSC account and complete an instructor-led workshop or self-guided training for access to Spin.
The Rancher system is available at https://rancher2.spin.nersc.gov/ .
The NERSC container image registry, used in conjunction with Rancher, is available at https://registry.nersc.gov/ .
