Notes for future

Conda environments will not be available on future HPC platforms.

There is increasing pressure to move HPC workloads into the public cloud.  Reliance on in-house HPC infrastructure will decrease with time.

It's possible that HPC will be directed to implement a NOEXEC option on all user filesystems, which would mean software you have installed yourself will not be executable.  I would hope that there is a documented security vetting process prior to such a directive being given to us.  We have had a request for implementation of such an option in the past but chose not to take any action (there was no directive).
