Jupyter Enterprise Gateway

Jupyter Enterprise Gateway is a web server (built directly on Jupyter Kernel Gateway) that enables the ability to launch kernels on behalf of remote notebooks throughout your enterprise compute cluster. This enables better resource management since the web server is no longer the single location for kernel activity which, in Big Data environments, can result in large processes that together deplete your single node of its resources.

By default, Jupyter runs kernels locally - potentially exhausting the server of resources

By leveraging the functionality of the underlying resource management applications like Hadoop YARN, Kubernetes, etc., Jupyter Enterprise Gateway distributes kernels across the compute cluster, dramatically increasing the number of simultaneously active kernels.
