Building Container Images for HPC Workloads

Date and Time: 
Thursday April 11th 2019
CG Center Auditorium
Craig Tierney

This tutorial will describe how to build container images for HPC workloads with Docker, Singularity, and HPC Container Maker (HPCCM). Best practices including image layering, caching, multi-stage builds, and managing container image size will be covered. HPCCM will be a primary focus, describing how to use this open source tool to generate Dockerfiles and Singularity definition files from a Python recipe.The technical level is beginner / intermediate.
