Creating national infrastructure for Jupyter environments

In a recent Jupyter Blog post*, Jim Colliander described a project in Canada to provide interactive computing environments at scale to educators and researchers. This was accomplished by providing customized JupyterHubs running on national and cloud infrastructure that were tailored to the use-cases of groups around the country.
