All the scientific software managed by sNow! is tuned for the target HPC architecture and hardware setup. For this reason sNow! doesn’t provide pre-built scientific software. It integrates and relies on EasyBuild for building development tools and scientific software in order to ensure the maximum level of performance. EasyBuild is a software build and installation framework that allows you to manage scientific software on HPC systems in an efficient way. EasyBuild is developed by the High-Performance Computing team at Ghent University together with the members of the EasyBuild community, and is made available under the GPL version 2.
