The following is a hands-on introduction to the Research Cloud. It runs through some basic concepts, then provides a tutorial where we will create a computer in the cloud, connect to it, run some commands, and close it down again.
Prerequisites: This training focuses on Linux. While we provide all the commands you need to enter at the command line, a basic familiarity with the command line will help you be most productive. There are many online Linux resources, but the first few sections of this tutorial are a good place to start. You'll also need a working SSH client on your computer. If you are not familiar with SSH, we've provided this guide that explains how to set it up.
