Software FAQ

Jetstream2 provides some software packages for all researchers. The sheer number of available packages across all of the scientific disciplines makes it impossible to meet the desires of everyone in installing and maintaining software for research.


How can I see what software is maintained by the Jetstream2 staff?

The Jetstream2 software collection documented here in this document


How do I access the software in this collection?

This software store is mounted automatically when the instance is launched. Instructions for using it are in the software collection information page


Can I request to have other software packages added to the software collection?

You may request software using the contact form

Please do keep in mind that we cannot add and maintain all requested software packages. We will review any requests and track those requests.

Since everyone on Jetstream2 allocations potentially has root access on their VMs, you can install any software you need. You can then snapshot and save your customized images.
