Getting Started

Welcome to Getting Started!

The only pre-requisite to start this workflow is getting an AWS account which can be done here.

Log in as root user if you have never used AWS before. 

Once you are logged in you can start the video and tutorial below. The video walkthrough goes over running the Short Range Weather Application on the cloud as an example. As the EPIC team makes more UFS applications available on the cloud, we will make video tutorials that cover each; signing onto the cloud and getting things running will remain the same.

Running the Short-Range Weather Application on the AWS Cloud

If you run into any issues we encourage you to ask questions on our newly created Github Discussions board where someone from the EPIC team or someone from the community can answer it.
 

Please be aware that you will need to cover the costs of running the SRW on the cloud. Below is a break-down of what kinds of charges you may incur:
