Request a G-BOX

You can request a G-BOX Virtual Machine (VM) directly from the EarthConsole® WebApp.

Once you have registered and logged in, you can press the “G-BOX” Request VM button in the top left bar, click on the “Request your G-BOX” button on the left bar and select the desired template and fill the request form page. Please make sure to press the “Submit request” button.

Note that in the service request form you are required to specify whether you want to request ESA sponsorship or not. Your selection will imply that you are choosing one of the following options:

Option 1 “Sponsorship Request via ESA NoR”

If you have a research, educational or pre-commercial project, you may be eligible to submit a sponsoring request via the ESA Network of Resources (NoR) portal. If the sponsorship request will be approved, this would cover partially or totally the cost of the desired EarthConsole® service.

If you are not eligible to apply for a sponsorship via the NoR portal or in case of rejection, option n° 2 is always available.

More information on the ESA Network of Resources in this guide.

Option 2 “Unsponsored Service Activation”

Following the request of the desired service via the EarthConsole® Webapp, we will send you a quotation of the service for your approval together with the instructions to proceed with the payment.

If the NoR Sponsorship Request or the quotation of the service will be approved, a new machine is created for you and you will be able to access it from the MY G-BOX page.
