Existing Users: Access CADES Cloud Now

What is CADES Cloud?

Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s (ORNL’s) Compute and Data Environment for Science (CADES) now provides eligible customers with an OpenStack cloud computing solution with customizable virtual machines (VM). This new resource, called “CADES Cloud,” enables customers in science and technology directorates to leverage self-service portals to rapidly request these VMs for production, testing, and development.

These CADES services are available at no cost to ORNL researchers.

How Do I Get Started?

Please see the quickstart user guide for launching a VM available here.

That site containes comprehensive user documentation for CADES services.

Getting Help

For Cloud-specific help requests, meaning those conserning the OpenStack VMs, ORNL staff should use the Service Now form, and external Cloud users, who do not have access to ORNL’s internal networks, should send cloud help requests via email to orcloud@ornl.gov.

Additional CADES Resources

Additional CADES resources are available on a limited basis by request and pending review by the CADES Resource Utilization Council.

For additional CADES resource allocations, please send a detailed request to the CADES Resource Utilization Council at cades-ruc@ornl.gov.
