This is a collection of the ten most frequently asked questions. If you don't find your question here, feel free to contact me directly!
Where can I find your public blueprints?
Our blueprints are available on our github repository. Feel free to open new issues or pull requests.
What is a cargo?
A cargo is a shared storage solution implemented using an S3-like system. When you launch a probe with a cargo you are mounting that cargo locally: all the files you put in that directory will survive after you destroy the probe, as will the jobs.
Does my data inside a probe/job/api survive after I delete it?
No. All your data that is not saved inside a cargo will be deleted together with the probe/job/api. The filesystem is ephemeral, so remember to copy your data somewhere.
Are the probes publicly accessible, aka you get the url and access them?
No. Each probe is protected, so you either need to be the owner of the probe, or the owner has to give you access to it. In all other situations, even with a valid url, you won’t be able to access the probe.

How many probes/jobs/apis can I run?
It depends onyour plan, check the pricing page for more info.
Can I have root access to my probes?
No, at least for now, you won’t be able to get access. However,you can install all the packages you need without a root user, using pip or conda, for example. If you do need to install some packages - using apt for example - please just let us know.
How do the APIs work?
When you launch an API endpoint, it creates a new Docker image starting from both your cargo and from the blueprint you have selected. The files from your cargo are copied inside and not mounted. Bymounted we mean that after you create the API, a change inside your cargo will not appear inside the files of the API's image.
Can I get the logs of my probe/job/api?
We are working on this, it's a feature which will be released soon.
