SPSS Needs to Support Linux Displaying Remotely ( concurrent license on linux )
SPSS must support concurrent licensing on Linux and the ability to display remotely to work on large HPC and Application clusters that are based on Linux.
Most HPC and Application clusters run on Linux. Popular platforms include Grid Engine, SLURM, Torque/MOAB, etc. Large computation is overwhelming performed on Linux.
For my application Cluster (Linux with Sun Grid Engine) I cannot use SPSS because I cannot run SPSS on Linux with a DISPLAY variable that is remote; nor does a concurrent license work on Linux.
Columbia is paying over $100,000 per year for SPSS licensing which allows for 'Virtual Computer Labs'. This feature provides NO VALUE if it cannot be used in a Linux environment.
I must tell my customers that SPSS cannot be used for Large Computation and that they should consider alternatives. I will be recommending to Columbia to re-negotiate this Software license because of it's lack of usability.
