Evolution of Containers for HPC
Speaker:David Godlove, Solutions Architect, CIQ

In this session, Dave Godlove (Solutions Architect) will provide an update on the ongoing evolution of containers for HPC. We’ll discuss the transition from Singularity to Apptainer as a project supported by the Linux Foundation. Then we’ll turn attention to leveraging fake root permissions using the User namespace and running containers in “rootless mode”. We’ll also briefly discuss new recommendations for running containers in parallel and strategies for securing pre-built base containers. Finally, we will discuss job orchestration for containers in HPC. This presentation will be followed by a community discussion.
