Visualization software

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

Also available:

  • CUDA 7.0, 6.5, 6.0, 5.0, 4.0.17
  • FFmpeg 2.6.2, 2.3.3, 1.1.3

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.
