This guide is intended for rapid onboarding of Fred Hutch staff who have previous experience working with computing resources at other academic institutions. Overview information and links to relevant portions of the Wiki for getting started and basic usage of Fred Hutch resources is the primary focus. We highlight, as well, specific steps new staff or existing staff who have not previously needed to use these resoruces might need to take in order to get set up to use these resources.

Accessing compute resources

  • Fred Hutch employees can access compute resources using their HutchNet ID and associated password.
  • Most resources are automatically accessible via HutchNet ID.
  • After creating a GitHub account for yourself, email scicomp to be added to the Fred Hutch GitHub organization and for access to AWS and other cloud computing.
