This section lists short description and access/documentation details for the available Virtual Machine (VM) Images provided by the VI-SEEM Scientific Application Environment and the computational resources which support them.
The Live Access Server requires a specific software environment with specialized configuration. To simplify the process, Vi-SEEM community provides a virtual machine based on Ubuntu 16.04 with pre-installed and preconfigured software including
libcurl3, JAVA, Apache Tomcat, Ant, and Ferret. A virtual machine instance is available through the computational resources provided by the Cy-Tera facility of The Cyprus Institute.
Installation path of Tomcat is in /opt/tomcat and the LAS data are stored in /las that is mounted the /dev/vdb (not provided). After you add your xml files /opt/tomcat/content/las/conf, you shold edit the las.xml locate in /opt/tomcat/content/las/conf/server/.
To start and stop the tomcat server you can write:
systemctl start tomcat
systemctl enable tomcat
You can configure the tomcat service by editing the configuration file located in /etc/systemd/system/tomcat.service and modify it properly. You should use the
systemctl daemon-reload to apply new changes.
The docker VM employs the Clowder data repository. Docker is an open-source Virtual Machine platform that automates the deployment of Linux applications inside software containers. Docker containers wrap the requested software in a complete filesystem that contains everything needed to run: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries.The image To download the latest development image, you have to execute the following commands:
docker pull clowder/clowder
To run the image we write:
docker run clowder/clowder
If we want a specific version of the Clowder data repository you can chek the https://hub.docker.com/r/clowder/clowder/tags/ for the entire list. If you want to install the specific version type:
docker pull clowder/clowder:1.0
The Life Sciences Research Community in the SEEM region is using a variety of codes and tools to simulate the processes under investigation.
