Click Yes.

The next steps vary depending on whether you have a CREODIAS account or not.

You don’t have an account yet

If you don’t have a CREODIAS account yet, an on-screen message telling you about the need to verify your e-mail address should appear:

Check your e-mail inbox. You should get an e-mail similar to this:

../_images/email-verification-template.png

If you can’t find it, please check your SPAM folder. If the e-mail is not there, wait up to a couple of minutes and check your inbox and SPAM folders again. If that is unsuccessful, please try to regenerate the e-mail by clicking the link that says Click here in the confirmation on-screen message. If you still can’t find it, please contact the CREODIAS support: support@creodias.eu

Activate your account by clicking the verification link in that e-mail.

After that, you will be required to complete account information and accept Privacy Policy, Terms & Conditions, Terms of Access to Data and, optionally, agree for receiving marketing information about CloudFerro services.

Once you have done that, click Complete Account. Your account should now be registered. Confirmation of your registration will be sent to your e-mail address.

You already have an account

If you already have a CREODIAS account registered to the e-mail address you previously provided, you will receive an on-screen message similar to this:

You can use the Review profile button to view your current account.

After that, click Add to existing account to link your EGI and CREODIAS accounts.

Step 2 Registering a new organization or joining an existing one

Note

Skip this step if you already have an organization associated with your account.

To take advantage of the full potential of your account, you need to register a new Organization or join an existing one. The following article contains information on how to do it: Adding and editing Organization.

What To Do Next

CREODIAS cloud can be used for general hosting needs, such as

  • installing LAMP servers,

  • installing and using WordPress servers,

  • email servers,

  • Kubernetes and SLURM clusters and so on.

You can also take advantage of its access to the eodata repository, where “eodata” stands for “Earth Observation Data” from satellites.

Once you have full access to the service, the best way to get started is to create a virtual machine with Linux or Windows.
