This quickstart shows how to create a new group.
PrimeHub is group-centric. This means that users, instance types, images, and datasets must be assigned to a group. Without being assigned to a group, these elements cannot be utilized, and users will not be able to access any features of PrimeHub.
Groups allow a subset of users to share storage, such as datasets and shared volumes. Available computational resources can also be configured through assigning Instance Types to groups, allowing resource allocation on a per-project basis.
As users can be added to multiple groups, this means they can collaborate on many projects, and access different datasets with specific server resource configurations.
