Container Technology for HPC
Container technologies have revolutionized software deployment and management, providing portability, scalability, and reproducibility across various computing platforms. While containers have gained significant popularity in diverse domains, their adoption in high-performance computing (HPC) environments poses unique challenges. In this article, I conduct a short evaluation of container technologies with a specific focus on their suitability for HPC systems. This analysis considers performance, security vulnerabilities and adherence to OCI standards as key factors influencing container technology selection.
