Open OnDemand Access to Oscar

Benefits of OOD:

  • No installation needed. Just use your favorite browser!
  • No need to enter your password again. SSH into Oscar in seconds!
  • No need to use two-factor authentication multiple times. Just do it once, when you log into OOD.
  • Use it with, or without, VPN. Your workflow remains the same.

  • Just a good time over all 🥳
