Create a virtual machine for software bundling or reproducible research

Dealing with complex software packages is a major challenge of scientific computing, particularly on the research front. Systems that are designed to run in a Linux environment are often difficult to assemble. Furthermore, porting to other operating systems may not be feasible.

In general, a virtual machine installation provides multiple instances of an operating system on just one computer. This increases your compute power without the cost and space burden of installing multiple machines. In addition, virtual machines provide a way to:
