Getting Started

Creation

Option 1: Run CHORDS on Amazon Web Services

Amazon Web Services

If you don't have an AWS account, it's easy to create one. The standard CHORDS portal uses an Amazon "micro instance", which can be free for the first year.

Once you have an AWS account, you can create a CHORDS Portal instance (server) in just a few steps.

Option 2: Run CHORDS in other compute environments

CHORDS Portal

CHORDS can be run on a cloud service of your choice, or just a local machine, running Linux, MacOS or Windows. Configure the operating system, and then run the CHORDS control script to create a CHORDS Portal instance.

After the Portal is created, you will use your browser to configure and manage it.
