At IU, what software is available on the research computing systems?
On this page:
- Software on Big Red II, Quarry, and Rockhopper
- Genome analysis software on Mason
- Web Services on the Research Database Complex
Software on Big Red II, Quarry, and Rockhopper
At Indiana University, the Scientific Applications and Performance Tuning group, part of the Research Technologies division of UITS, maintains the software on Big Red II, Quarry, and Rockhopper. For descriptions of software available on those systems, see:
Note: Big Red II, Mason (discussed below), Quarry, and Rockhopper provide an environment management package called Modules that allows users on those systems to customize their software environments. For more, see On Big Red II, Mason, Quarry, and Rockhopper at IU, how do I use Modules to manage my software environment?
To request that software be added to Big Red II or Quarry, fill out the Research Systems Software Request form.
If you have questions about software installed on Big Red II, Quarry, or Rockhopper, email Scientific Applications and Performance Tuning.
Genome analysis software on Mason
The National Genome Analysis and Support (NCGAS) group, also part of the RT division of UITS, maintains and supports genome analysis software on Mason. For descriptions of software available on Mason, see NCGAS Software.
Mason users can install software in their home directories for use by a single user or project. Alternatively, faculty and staff can use the NCGAS Mason Cluster Software Request form to request installation of software for use by all users on the system. For more, see At IU, what is the policy about installing software on Mason?
If you have questions about software on Mason, email NCGAS.
Web Services on the Research Database Complex
In addition to providing a home for research databases, IU's
Research Database Complex (RDC) provides an environment for
database-driven web applications with a research focus. This
environment comprises a Dell 2950 with a 1.6 GHz Quad-core Intel Xeon
processor and 8 GB of memory. This system
rdcweb.uits.iu.edu) runs Red Hat Enterprise Linux
5. User home directories reside on a Network-Attached Storage (NAS)
device with disk quotas of 10 GB per user. This quota is shared by
your Big Red II, Mason, Quarry, and RDC accounts, if you have accounts
on those systems.
For more, see Web Services on the IU Research Database Complex.
For help configuring Web Services for your RDC database, email the High Performance Systems group.
