Account Switcher

Switching between Accounts is described in a separate part of the documentation.

Account Snapshot

The right-hand sidebar also offers a snapshot of the Account, containing some basic information: storage quota on each available computing cluster, job queue summary, service level, and finally the current balance. The possibility to expand or replenish these two latter items is also offered next to each one of them.

An example of snapshot is shown below, for the case of an account with access to three different (relatively empty) clusters, and with no jobs currently being submitted or active.

Account Preferences

Clicking Account Preferences lets the user customize account-related information and settings. Such preferences are reviewed extensively in their own documentation section.

Billing and Payments

The Billing and Payments link redirects to the Billing page. Here, a series of tabs at the top show in turn the different charges applied to the Account (for each job separately) , the payments made by the owner , and the chosen payment methods . More details about such billing and payments information can be found here.

Terminal and Remote Desktop

The Terminal and Remote Desktop functionality provide alternative methods for accessing Accounts. More information about such practices can be retrieved here.

Invite a Friend

The Invite a Friend option lets users send an email invitation to a friend or colleague who might also benefit from using our platform. Both the sender and recipient will get a gift in the form of Account balance credit when the new registration is approved.


The Logout option should be pressed once operations under the current Account have been completed. Other users can then login to the platform with their own credentials.
