HPC Containers in Use Jonathan Sparks – Cray Inc. – Cray User Group

Implementing existing enterprise container solutions in HPC systems will require modifications to the software stack. HPC systems traditionally already have resource management and job scheduling systems in place, so the container runtime environments will need to integrate into the existing system resource manager. The container infrastructure should follow the core concepts of containers. That is, to abstract the application from the host’s software stack, but be able to access host-level resources when necessary, notably the network and storage. Unfortunately, modifying core components of the host to support containers introduces a portability problem.
