This month, we announce a lot of exciting new capabilities for CHI@Edge--Chameleon on the edge! Reserve devices, including Jetson Nanos with NVIDIA TX2 GPUs onboard! We also made it easier to onboard lots of users to a project (helpful for classes!) and gave the hardware catalogue a little refresh, in anticipation of the installation of Phase 3 hardware, which is coming soon!
This month, we announce the early user period for our "edgy" users out there, remind you to please update your list of publications using Chameleon(!) and also let you know of a few important and cool things going on. Stay tuned next month for some announcements about new hardware installations, if all goes well!
The summer is almost in full swing, and we're frantically getting stuff done so we can kick back and just rest on our laurels from May until August… just kidding. Expect lots more fun stuff to be announced this summer! For now, enjoy your latest changelog.
In this issue, learn more about running a workshop on Chameleon, blocking out portions of time on your CHI-in-a-Box associate site to "set it aside" for other uses, try out a new Jupyter tutorial around stitching, and apply to take ownership of some of our legacy hardware! We're also very excited to get some …
Explore CHI-in-a-Box with the new QuickStart notebook, which guides you through the process of setting up CHI-in-a-Box on a bare metal CentOS 8 machine. Announcing a preview of Bring Your Own Device, a feature that allows operators to enroll and manage Chameleon hardware with greater ease. Easier CLI authentication from within your bare metal instances. Add users to your project by either username or email address. And, enjoy a new release of the Jupyter interface!
Winter's almost over! This month we have a lot of announcements, notably a big facelift for CHI-in-the-Box, the packaging of Chameleon, but also a new interactive handbook for Chameleon and some nice KVM capabilities.
Hey! It's your friendly neighborhood Chameleon changelog, back from a long vacation. This month we announce general availability for CHI@NU, new Cascade Lake racks at CHI@TACC, and more!
We'd like to take a brief moment to reflect with gratitude on what went right this year, at least in the (small) realm of our work on this research testbed. So here’s one year in review, representing combined “changelog” information from the entire year.
The way you access the testbed will change -- for the bettter! You will be able to access the testbed via federated login allowing you to log in with your instritutional credentails or even your Google account -- read about the impact and schedule of this important change!
Introducing a new networking capability: connect your Chameleon networks directly to AWS networks via DirectConnect! And, we discuss the addition of 40 new GPU cards at CHI@UC.
Simpler SDN setups, a new Jupyter tutorial, and a new focus in the new year--more details inside!
