For a number of companies, containers have been the development methodology of choice because they allow users to share applications and processes across operating environments. But when the requirements of high-performance computing (HPC) workloads outgrew traditional container technology, the time was right for something new.
Offering a revolutionary approach to containers, Singularity is the application format for cloud and multi-cloud environments. In fact, for “the everywhere.” With Singularity’s unique Singularity Image Format, an entire environment can be packaged in a reproducible format and distributed to work on a single system, on a cluster, or in every cloud.
In short, Singularity is a universal distribution format that can be used in any enterprise, academic, or government use case.
