Lead investigator, Supercontainers project Sandia National Laboratories
Supercomputing Containers project (aka SuperContainers) is a part of Exascale Computing Project at the Department of Energy (DOE). It was launched to evaluate several container technologies that were in use at different DOE Labs in anticipation of the arrival of exascale systems. The conclusion of that evaluation was that a more robust production-quality container solution is required that is based on open source software development model, supports key standards, and can run across multiple hardware architectures. In this talk we will share which container runtimes are best suited for exascale supercomputers.
