In this video from the NVIDIA Showcase event at SC18, Jensen Huang hosts a demo of Singularity containers running a full galaxy simulation.

This is absolutely the best Container demo you have ever seen!”

As part of that effort, Huang announced new multi-node HPC and visualization containers for the NGC container registry, which allow supercomputing users to run GPU-accelerated applications on large-scale clusters. NVIDIA also announced a new NGC-Ready program, including workstations and servers from top vendors.

These systems are ready to run a growing collection of software that just works, on one system or across many. “This isn’t the app store for apps you want, this is the app store for the apps you need,” Huang said. “It’s all lovingly maintained and tested and optimized.”

The Singularity team is nearly ready to release a container for ParaView, with examples available now on GitHub at Read the Full Story on this demo from the Sylabs team.
