Submissions are now open - get ready!

In order to create your submission for the Seagate CORTX Integration Challenge, you need to run CORTX. Here are two ways to get started: 

  1. Stand up your instance using the steps provided on GitHub.

  2. Request a CloudShare instance of CORTX VM from the Seagate team.
    The CloudShare environment grants you access to a pre-configured, stable CORTX environment. This eliminates the need for you to set up an instance of CORTX via the VM image and will save you time and effort. Request an invitation to CloudShare here.
