containers

Experimental support for Singularity containers on all Sigma2 systems

We now have experimental support for containers running in Singularity on our HPC systems Fram and Saga. Betzy will also have Singularity when it goes into production. 

Containers offer a way to abstract away the architecture and environment such that it is possible to fully focus on the input, output and reproducibility of the executing code(s) that is running inside the container. Docker containers can easily be converted to Singularity containers

Users are invited to test

We would like to take this opportunity to invite users to test this functionality. Questions regarding the use of Singularity may be directed to: support@metacenter.no
