The OutpostSpawner in combination with the JupyterHub Outpost service enables JupyterHub to spawn single-user notebook servers on heterogenous remote resources.
The JupyterHub community has created many useful JupyterHub Spawners over the past years, allowing JupyterHub to use the specific features of different systems. For most of these Spawners, JupyterHub has to run locally on the system itself. The OutpostSpawner enables the use of these Spawners on remote systems.
The JupyterHub Outpost service in combination with the OutpostSpawner enables a single JupyterHub to spawn single-user notebook servers using a variety of Spawners on a variety of remote systems.
Use one JupyterHub to offer single-user servers on multiple systems of potentially different types.
Each (remote) system may use a different JupyterHub Spawner.
Forward spawn events gathered by the remote Spawner to the user.
Users can override the configuration of the remote Spawner at runtime (e.g. to select a different Docker Image).
Integrated SSH port forwarding solution to reach otherwise isolated remote single-user servers.
Supports the JupyterHub
One JupyterHub Outpost can be connected to multiple JupyterHubs without the Hubs interfering with each other.
At least one JupyterHub running on a Kubernetes Cluster (recommended is the use of Zero2JupyterHub). It is not necessary that the JupyterHub Outpost service runs on Kubernetes, but recommended.
The JupyterHub Outpost must fulfill the requirements of the configured Spawner class.
