Part of Jetstream's design is to provide virtual machines that are "tuned" to specific scientific research types. This entails taking tools that one might typically need for a specific discipline research area and tailoring all of the necessary tools, libraries, and other dependencies such that it is ready to go once you start it up. The library of VMs will continue to evolve over the life of Jetstream, but here are some sample areas that the Jetstream development team plan on making available:
Jetstream will also allow researchers to create environments tuned to their research needs and then save those for future use. These VMs may also be made public if the author chooses to so that others might have an environment tuned specifically for a single application or application family and to ensure reproducability.
