Containers are a new paradigm for how Linux software can be developed and delivered. Singularity is the most popular Linux container solution for High-Performance Computing (HPC). In this webinar, we will cover the basics of using Singularity and best practices of using it on Compute Canada HPC systems. We will then discuss the common use cases and our experience with Singularity, and review the recent developments and changes in the newest versions of Singularity 3. The webinar is intended for everyone with basic skills in the Linux command line. To follow the examples on Compute Canada systems, a valid Compute Canada account and an SSH client to connect will be needed.


This is an online webinar. Connection instructions will be emailed to all registrants.
