- We greatly appreciate the generosity of the staff at the University of Colorado - Boulder's Research Computing department who allowed us to use much of their outstanding documentation here at CCR. Organizing and writing technical documentation is time consuming and difficult but they've graciously shared their work product with us saving us countless hours and headaches. Thank you CURC!
- Portions of our documentation was inspired by the Digital Research Alliance of Canada
- CCR's software infrastructure was adopted from the work done by Compute Canada and the European Environment for Scientific Software Installations (EESSI)
