SWAN (Service for Web based ANalysis): [[1]] is a platform to perform interactive data analysis in the cloud.

If you have a CERN account, please send an email to swan-admins@cern.ch [[2]] and you'll be given permission to access SWAN. If not, login credentials will be offered for trying to a limited amount of users.

Once you have your accounts please log in first in CERNBox: [[3]] (still necessary) and then in SWAN: [[4]].
