Example 4: Researcher developer working on data

A researcher developing algorithms in Python, R, SAS, and even coding in C/C++ can be supported in the ResVault. Users do not have admin access to VMs, but most software development environments allow users without administrator privileges to add modules and scripts and to compile source code. The only caveat being that the user must make sure that all installed additions are installed in the home drive and not in the system drive. In most cases installation in the system drive will fail, but there may be a rare case where it appears to work and then the installation will not work correctly after the VM is restarted.
