Academic Training Lecture Regular Programme

Controlling the CERN Accelerator Complex (3/4)

by Remi Voirin (CERN)


Introduction to Containerization and its applications for CERN Accelerator Controls

Containerization is a far reaching and major trend in computing to package software code together with its dependencies, so that it can run consistently on any underlying infrastructure. In this lecture, we will explore technologies behind containerization as well as their purpose and added value. We will also cover challenges arising from the use of containerization, before going on to look at practical use cases for CERN Accelerator Controls and how to make the best out of these new technologies.
