What is a Cloud ?

Cloud computing is shared pools of configurable computer system resources and higher-level services that can be rapidly provisioned with minimal management effort, often over the Internet. Cloud computing relies on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economies of scale, similar to a public utility.


To install NMRProcFlow on the cloud, you should first create a virtual machine on a cloud infrastructure of your choice and then install docker-engine. Most Cloud suppliers offer preconfigured machines with pre-installed dockers. Once configured you should connect to the virtual machine (in SSH mode), and execute the following commands:

# Get the install script
root@npflow:~# cd /home
root@npflow:~# wget

# Execute the script
root@npflow:~# sh ./

# Launch the application
root@npflow:~# cd /opt/npflow
root@npflow:~# ./npflow start
