OpenStack Cloud

All the cloud services used by CANFAR are the Compute Canada (CC) OpenStack offerings. We strongly encourage the user to refer to the Compute Canada cloud documentation for reference.

The Compute Canada allocation resources are currently shared between all CANFAR users. Currently the only difference are:

  • a CANFAR user on the OpenStack CC cloud is [CADC username]-canfar, with initially the password as used with the CADC.
  • a CANFAR project/tenant on the OpenStack CC cloud is named [project]-canfar
