Virtual Desktop

Virtual Desktop in Open OnDemand allows you to start an XFCE desktop session on one of the worker nodes. You can choose to have a standard session, or one running using a GPU.

You may want to run on a GPU node if you are using graphics heavy applications, such as Drishti


Select the partition you wish to run on, the number of CPU cores, the memory and the amount of time. Then click Launch. Once the job starts running, you can then click "Launch Virtual Desktop" to get your virtual desktop in the browser.
