Jupyter Enterprise Gateway

Actions Status PyPI version Downloads Documentation Status Google Group Join the chat at https://gitter.im/jupyter/enterprise_gateway

Jupyter Enterprise Gateway enables Jupyter Notebook to launch remote kernels in a distributed cluster, including Apache Spark managed by YARN, IBM Spectrum Conductor, Kubernetes or Docker Swarm.

It provides out of the box support for the following kernels:

  • Python using IPython kernel
  • R using IRkernel
  • Scala using Apache Toree kernel

Full Documentation for Jupyter Enterprise Gateway can be found here

Jupyter Enterprise Gateway does not manage multiple Jupyter Notebook deployments, for that you should use JupyterHub.

Technical Overview

Jupyter Enterprise Gateway is a web server that provides headless access to Jupyter kernels within an enterprise. Inspired by Jupyter Kernel Gateway, Jupyter Enterprise Gateway provides feature parity with Kernel Gateway's jupyter-websocket mode in addition to the following:

  • Adds support for remote kernels hosted throughout the enterprise where kernels can be launched in the following ways: _ Local to the Enterprise Gateway server (today's Kernel Gateway behavior) _ On specific nodes of the cluster utilizing a round-robin algorithm * On nodes identified by an associated resource manager
  • Provides support for Apache Spark managed by YARN, IBM Spectrum Conductor, Kubernetes or Docker Swarm out of the box. Others can be configured via Enterprise Gateway's extensible framework.
  • Secure communication from the client, through the Enterprise Gateway server, to the kernels
  • Multi-tenant capabilities
  • Persistent kernel sessions
  • Ability to associate profiles consisting of configuration settings to a kernel for a given user (see Project Roadmap)

Deployment Diagram


Detailed installation instructions are located in the Users Guide of the project docs. Here's a quick start using pip:

# install from pypi
pip install --upgrade jupyter_enterprise_gateway

# show all config options
jupyter enterprisegateway --help-all

# run it with default options
jupyter enterprisegateway

Please check the configuration options within the Operators Guide for information about the supported options.
