Qiime2 for multiple users

I would like to use qiime2 in a classroom. As far as I can see, all installation instructions were developed for a single-user installation as conda is installed for a (single) user.

Are there any recommendations how to expand a q2 single-user setup to a multiple user setup on the same machine? Our virtualization platform is powerfull enough to run a machine with up to 24 cpus, and we have enough RAM.

Best regards

Hi @arwqiime, conda supports multi-user deployments, just specify a shared install directory when installing miniconda (for example, I like /opt/miniconda3). As long as user’s $PATH is up-to-date, you should be good to go.

We deploy a similar strategy when hosting QIIME 2 Workshops.
