Coiled helps individuals and teams manage their resources, control costs, and collaborate with one another.
Using a Team account¶
If you are part of a team, you can create clusters or any other resources in
your team account by using the
account= keyword argument that most of our
API commands accept, or by specifying
as a prefix in the
name= keyword argument.
For example, to create a cluster in your team account:
import coiled cluster = coiled.Cluster(n_workers=10, account="my-team-account-name")
Or, to create a software environment in your team account:
import coiled coiled.create_software_environment( name="my-team-account-name/my-pip-env", pip=["dask[complete]", "xarray==0.15.1", "numba"], )
Alternatively, you can also update your local coiled configuration file and add your team account name in this file to always use your team account when you are using coiled.
Accounts & teams¶
Upon signing up, each Coiled user is automatically given their own personal account (the account name is the same as their username) which they can use to manage software environments, create cluster configurations, and launch Dask clusters.
Additionally, organizations and other teams can create their own Coiled account and add existing Coiled users to their team. Team members can be added and removed to an account at https://cloud.coiled.io/users. This enables team members to create software environments, cluster configurations, etc. within a team’s account (instead of their personal account) to easily share resources and collaborate with other team members.
Resource limits & tracking costs¶
Administrators for each Coiled account can set resource limits for account members like the number of cores a user can allocate at one time or whether or not to grant access to GPUs (which can be expensive). Additionally, you can track each cluster’s cost over time.
