IMPORTANT: We encourage you to start  QCG-Now instead of QCG-Icon. QCG-Now is a new software that replaces QCG-Icon functionality. We do not plan new updates of QCG-Icon.

QCG-Icon is a lightweight application for Windows, MAC OSX and Linux platforms, aiming to provide transparent access to applications installed at PL-Grid resources and made available via  QosCosGrid services. Currently with QCG-Icon it is possible to run on remote HPC resources:

  • and any BASH scripts.

We are open to enable other applications for QCG-Icon.
