Topic:  Software Installation for HPC Users – Conda, Containers, SPACK

Speakers: 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.
