Licence Details:

Can be downloaded from .

Admin notes: 

This can be freely downloaded from Intel. A wide variety of install methods are provided, but for the moment we've gone with the one that's similar to the Intel compiler suite - a tarball with an install script in it. We install each version in a subdirectory /usr/local/shared/intel on the NFS server and provide a module.
