Custom App Container Targets HPC Needs

The Energy Department lab that is also part of the University of California system developed the open source Singularity approach to address HPC requirements for distributing applications. “With Singularity you can build executable containers based on your host system and define what happens when that container is launched,” explained project lead Gregory Kurtzer of Berkeley Labs.

Singularity is designed to handle a range of processes inside the container, including single or a complex of binaries, scripts and data, Kurtzer added.

The approach also combines packaging and container concepts “while maintaining standard command line interface work flows,” Berkeley Labs said
