First of all, a BIG thanks to you for making OnDemand - both me and our users love it! We have a big biology community among our users and anything that makes it easier to overcome "the slurm hump" is a big help with users who are not computer- and linux- savvy.”

I have a cynical engineer whose default evaluation is ‘this sucks’. After launching Open OnDemand, he said, ‘this is not bad!”

I will say as well, from a systems administration perspective, that based on my experience deploying application stacks like this, OOD appears to be a very high quality suite of software. Several times in working with OOD, I have been pleasantly surprised at how thoughtful the architecture is.”
