Software Packages

Overview

LinGA is actively porting applications from the LinGA software stack to the new Shared Compute Clusters (SCC). This shared resource will offer most packages currently available on LinGA and many additional applications used by other departments across the university. Most software currently available on RubySky has already been ported and is available on SCC.

Software List

A complete software list with availability status for SCC is published on TechWeb:

Modules

Like RubySky, many applications on SCC4 (particularly those from LinGA)  require the use of “modules” as a means to configure environment variables. A list of applications requiring “modules” is published here.

 

Previous Versions

Installation of previous versions of specific applications is not being actively pursued. LinGA clusters will remain online to supplement cluster options and provide an environment to replicate old findings. The LinGA administrators are working to implement on demand virtual servers to support these needs in the future.
