How Charliecloud Simplifies Big Data Supercomputing at LANL

“Los Alamos has lots of supercomputing power, and we do lots of simulations that are well supported here. But we’ve found that Big Data analysis projects need to use different frameworks, which often have dependencies that differ from what we have already on the supercomputer. So, we’ve developed a lightweight ‘container’ approach that lets users package their own user defined software stack in isolation from the host operating system.”

Finding the Right Solutions with Dell EMC HPC Innovation Lab
