FarmShare provides access to many software packages; some notable examples are:
These include commercial software, which is licensed for use on FarmShare systems in coursework, but not for research.
Other software provided by the standard Ubuntu repositories may be available upon request, and Research Computing may be able to accommodate courses with special requirements. Instructors should contact firstname.lastname@example.org at least one month in advance for assistance.
FarmShare users can build and install additional software in their AFS home directories, or in per-user directories in
/farmshare/user_data. Package managers like Linuxbrew and Spack can automate this process for many popular applications and libraries, and some programming environments provide similar tools for installing modules (e.g.,
pip install --user for Python).
