Projects

Projects provide users with a space, a filesystem and working directory where Datasets and Files can be manipulated. Projects are also places where users run Applications and Jobs. Projects are isolated linux-like file-systems - Applications and Jobs run in a Project’s file-space and can only access files present in the project in which they’re running.

Users pay for the applications and jobs they run, and the daily peak filesystem space consumed.

Owners, Editors, Observers

The user that creates a Project is known as the Owner. Owners have full access to all the files, applications and instances in the Project.

Owners can add users to a Project as Editors. Editors have the same capabilities as the owner, i.e. they have full access to all the files, applications and instances in the Project. Editors, like the owner, can run applications and jobs and can add and removed files.

Editors can also add users with an editorial capacity to a project.

Owners, and editors, can also add users to a project as Observers. An observer is able to see the content of a project (its files, applications and jobs) but they are not able to modify a project. They cannot run applications or Jobs and cannot add or edit files in a Project.

Observers can download files from a Project.
