In this presentation, we'll give an overview of the Singularity
container system, and our experience with it at the RACF/SDCC at
Brookhaven National Laboratory. We'll also discuss Singularity's
advantages over virtualization and other Linux namespace-based
container solutions in the context of HTC and HPC applications.
Finally, we'll detail our future plans for this software at our
The University of Victoria HEP group has been successfully running on distributed clouds for several years using the CloudScheduler/HTCondor framework. The system uses clouds in North America and Europe including commercial clouds. Over the last years, the operation has been very reliably, we are regularly running several thousands of jobs concurrently for the ATLAS and Belle II experiments....
Docker container virtualization provides an efficient way to create isolated scientific environments, adjusted and optimized for a specific problem or a specific group of users. It allows to efficiently separate responsibilities - with IT focusing on infrastructure for image repositories, preparation of basic images, container deployment and scaling, and physicists focusing on application...
Private cloud deployment is on going at KEK. Our cloud will support self-service provisioning, and also will be integrated our batch system in order to provide heterogeneous clusters dynamically. It enables us to support various kinds of data analyses and enabling elastic resource allocation among the various projects supporting at KEK.
In this talk, we will introduce our OpenStack based cloud...
