How to customize the G-BOX
INSTALLING ADDITIONAL SOFTWARE AND TOOLS
The G-BOX VM is already equipped with the most common software and tools for Earth Observation data analysis and algorithm development (e.g. SNAP, Python, GDAL, qGIS, BRAT, Panoply, R, …).
Installation and configuration requests of additional software not provided by default or ad hoc customization of the environment, such as installation of ftp server, web server, firewall, etc., will be evaluated case-by-case to define the associated cost.
Under particular circumstances and for a limited period of time, users may obtain administrator privileges to carry out the needed customization autonomously under their responsibility. This option has no extra costs for the users but it is not recommended as the system is not guaranteed against system corruption: any subsequent intervention requested to the support team to fix or revert a damaged environment, if possible, will be accounted as a paid service.
INCREASE THE G-BOX VM RESOURCES (RAM, CPU, DISK)
It is technically possible to increase the resources according to the available G-BOX Types (https://earthconsole.eu/pricing/#pricing_gbox). The cost of the resized VM will be updated accordingly and the difference will be due for the remaining period.
