Introduction to Singularity: Containers for High-Performance Computing (TSCC Workshop)

Presented on March 21, 2019, by Marty Kandes, Ph.D.

This bootcamp provides an introduction to running Singularity containers on the SDSC Triton Shared Compute Cluster (TSCC) for users currently using the TSCC and those who want to know more about running Singularity on the TSCC. SDSC's computational scientist Marty Kandes provides an in-depth review of the important issues pertaining to running Singularity in the TSCC high-performance ecosystem and includes several useful container examples for you to explore.

Training consists of a 1.5 hour presentation followed by a 2 hour Q&A/user support session, drop in users were welcome.
