Jupyter notebook on remote server¶
Jupyter notebook works very well with remote servers. That’s important for earth science modeling people because we seldom run models and store data on our personal computers!
Traditionally, we display figures on a remote server using x11 forwarding, but that’s extremely slow and often annoying. On the contrary, Jupyter simply uses HTTP protocal and runs in a web browser. You user experience will not change at all when using Jupyter on a remote server - still a web browser, still very fast.
On your own server or cloud computing platforms, setting up Jupyter is almost trivial. See the following link or other similar tutorials.
