This HydroShare resource provides five local approaches using Virtual Box image.
First, users need to install Virtual Box ( at first.
Then import this "research.ova" to create a SUMMA and pySUMMA computational environment in Virtual Box.

After creating "research.ova" image on Virtual Box, users need to move to the "/home/hydro/project/Performance_Test" folder to start SUMMA run.
Then, users can follow the "instruction.txt" in each approach foler.
The password of this "research.ova" image is "hydro."

This Virtual Box image five local approaches:
- Approach-1 Compiling the core model software
- Approach-2 Containerizing the core model software only with Docker
- Approach-3 Containerizing all software with Docker
- Approach-4 Containerizing all software with Singularity
- Approach-5 Containerizing all software and modeling workflows with Sciunit
