Virtual Images

For benefit of Training particpants who do not have ready access to a Linux machine, we have created a virtual image of CentOS 6.3. You can use this image in lieu of a LONI or LSU HPC account for some, but not all of our training courses. More details about this image and installation instructions are provided here
