DSI Studio has a high version turning rate, and occasionally the computation outcome may be different between versions. I would recommend keepping a local copy of DSI Studio for each research project and update DSI Studio every time if a new project is initiated.

Containers

Docker

docker run -ti --rm -e DISPLAY=$DISPLAY -v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix -v $PWD:/data dsistudio/dsistudio:latest

Singularity

$ singularity pull docker://dsistudio/dsistudio:latest     # This creates a singularity container *.sif file from the latest release of DSI Studio. Make sure you keep a copy of .sif file for your results
$ singularity exec -B /var,/run -B /home/server/folder dsistudio_latest.sif dsi_studio  # Some cluster does not allow users to access host drive, and you may need to mount folder into singularity container
$ singularity exec dsistudio_latest.sif dsi_studio   #  This invoke the graphic interface of DSI Studio 
$ singularity exec dsistudio_latest.sif dsi_studio --action=rec --source=my.src.gz # call DSI Studio command line interface in the singularity container

Hardware recommendation:

To achieve the best performance, I would recommend a computer with a multi-core CPU (e.g. http://store.hp.com/us/en/mdp/business-solutions/z840-workstation). Minimum memory of 16GB is needed. To handle a large number of tracks or image volumes, DSI Studio will need 32GB of memory or more.
