Linux containers, with the build-once-run-anywhere approach, are becoming popular among scientific communities for software packaging and sharing. Docker is the most popular and user friendly platform for running and managing Linux containers. Singularity is a platform for deploying light-weight containers for HPC systems. This workshop is mainly a hands-on tutorial that is organized as follows:

  • Overview of the Linux containers technology
  • Installing Docker
    • Building and managing Docker containers
    • Advanced Docker features, e.g. Docker Swarm and Docker Compose
