What is CloudStor SWAN?

SWAN (Service for Web-based ANalysis) is an AARNet service that allows users to perform interactive data analysis in CloudStor. It is built upon the widely-used Jupyter notebooks, which allows users to perform data analyses using only a web browser.

Jupyter notebooks can be launched through SWAN to process research data using cloud computing services. SWAN comes with a default set of code libraries for R, Python and C++ programming languages. Additional code libraries for these languages can be imported and installed in a notebook to meet different research needs.

For example, spaCy for natural language data processing and NumPy for time series data processing in Python or ggplot2 for visualising data and dplyr for categorised data processing in R.
