Visualization software

A number of well-known visualization software packages is installed on the ELvis cluster:

Support libraries, such as OpenMPI and HDF5 and NetCDF tools, are also installed.

It is also possible to compile and run custom OpenGL-based software. Note that the cluster nodes run Linux, so only Linux-based software is supported. Compiling, testing, debugging, etc. all needs to be done on the login node, elvis.surfsara.nl.

To be able to use different software packages and their versions a module system is used. See here for a general overview of the modules system in use on several SURFsara compute systems.
