Jupyter Notebook Architecture

This section provides a quick introduction of the Jupyter Notebook architecture, which consists of multiple components organized in 3 tiers: client, server, and kernel.

The Jupyter Notebook architecture consists of multiple components organized in 3 tiers.

1. Client - The client tier uses regular Web browsers communicating with the server tier using the WebSockets protocol.

2. Server - The server tier uses the Jupyter Notebook or JupyterLab server program to handle client requests, manage Notebook files, and send code to the kernel tier for execution.

3. Kernel - The kernel tier manages multiple execution engines for different programming languages including Python, R, JavaScript, etc..

Here is a nice illustration of the Jupyter Notebook architecture by Roberto Rodriguez at securitydatasets.com/consume/jupyter-notebooks.html.
