 +You will be logged in to the **frontend node**. :!: NOTE: :!: it is NOT possible to run your code on the frontend node. This is a very big difference to Iridium. Your code can only run on the dedicated nodes.
 +If you run stuff on the frontend you will be kicked out of the cluster.
 +Please follow the guide [[aurora_cluster:​running_on_aurora]] to know how to run your code.
