HPC containers with Azure Batch

We’re excited to announce support for Singularity containers in the latest Batch Shipyard release. Singularity is a container solution amenable to both administrators and users of shared HPC and cluster computing environments, while still providing access to accelerators such as GPUs and specialized interconnects in container contexts. Batch Shipyard is an open system for enabling simple, configuration-based container execution on Azure Batch, and aims to allow users of these shared computing environments to easily execute their existing Singularity workloads on Azure. Azure’s GPU, including ND, NCv2, and the upcoming NCv3 series of VMs, and RDMA-enabled instances are potentially an ideal fit for such workloads.
