Topic: Software installation for users - Containers, Conda, SPACK
Speaker: Dr. Markus Wittmann, Dr. Katrin Nusser, and Thomas Gruber (NHR@FAU)
Abstract: Installing their own software packages is often a challenge for users of HPC clusters. However, depending on the requirements, multiple solutions exist that can facilitate the task of making a complex software package available. In this HPC Cafe, we will cover three popular systems for user software installation and management on NHR@FAU systems: Conda, Containers (specifically Apptainer, a.k.a. Singularity), and SPACK.
