In this video from the 2018 Swiss HPC Conference, Abhinav Thota, from Indiana University presents: Containers Using Singularity on HPC.

“Container use is becoming more widespread in the HPC field. There are various reasons for this, including the broadening of the user base and applications of HPC. One of the popular container tools on HPC is Singularity, an open source project coming out of the Berkeley Lab. In this talk, we will introduce Singularity, discuss how users of Indiana University are using it and share our experience supporting it. This talk will include a brief demonstration as well.”

Abhinav Thota is the manager of the Scientific Applications team in the Research Technologies center at the Pervasive Technology Institute, Indiana University and has been working for IU since 2011. The Scientific Applications team helps users efficiently use the supercomputing resources at IU. They handle user support, software installation, modules and also support a linux remote desktop service.

In related news, the Sylabs HPC Startup recently announced a Remote Build Service for Singularity containers.
