This set of Virtual Machines (VM) allows you to obtain a computer environment that emulate as much as possible that one use for a particle physicist. Each VM contain ROOT as base software plus the Analysis Framework for the data analysis.
This customised set of Virtual Machines contains all the necessary pieces to perform analysis:
- ROOT and its dependencies, C++ compilers, python support, jupiter libraries and others like dropbox client
- Analysis Framework in python
- ROOT Jupyter notebooks (ROOTbook) examples
In particular, VM-S for "small", it has a compressed size of ~4.6GB, and a uncompressed size of ~11GB. This contains a complete Scientific Linux OS 6.7, important software dependencies and the latest version of ROOT v6-07-06.

Please note that the file you are going to download (ScientificLinux67_ATLAS_Outreach_DataAndTools_July_2016-size_S.vdi.gz) is 4817828998 bytes big. On an average ADSL connection, it may take several hours to download it (about 10 hours at 1Mbps).
Moreover, if you use one of the provided Virtual Machines to perform your analyses, then you don't need to download datasets manually, because the VM will fetch all the necessary file chunks via the XRootD protocol.
Manual download of files via HTTP is only necessary if you would prefer not to use the XRootD protocol for one reason or another.
All releases will have a unique DOI that you are requested to cite in any applications or publications.
