Choose the instance type

This is instance type that your notebook will run on. Our hardware is configured to work with the tools and packages in each of the provided containers.

Optional Settings:

Name your Notebook

Provide a friendly name for your Notebook in the text field

Auto-shutdown

If you have a Gradient subscription, you will have the ability to set a custom auto-shutdown interval.

If you do not have a Gradient subscription, your notebook will default to an auto-shutdown interval of 12 hours, to help avoid unexpected runtime charges. Once created, you can stop, start, fork, and swap out the instance type anytime.

Click Create

That's it! Your Notebook will start once it has been created 🚀

Once created, your Notebook will automatically start. Just click Open and your Notebook will appear in a new browser tab.

Start a Notebook

When you click Start, a window will appear that presents a few options such as the name, the instance type, and the Auto-Shutdown interval.

Stop a Notebook

Click the Stop button to stop your Notebook from running. When your Notebook is stopped, the billing session will end. You'll see how long your Running Time was for the latest session.

Delete a Notebook

Click Delete to remove your Notebook. Careful - this will permanently delete your Notebook!

You can only delete a notebook once it has stopped running.

Rename a Notebook

You can rename any Notebook, whether it is running or stopped, in order to help organize your work. Simply click on the notebook name in the list and it will become an editable text field; press the enter key when you are done to save it:
