5th Annual High Performance Container Workshop
Event Type
AI/Machine Learning/Deep Learning
Clouds and Distributed Computing
Containerized HPC
TimeThursday, June 20th9am - 6pm CEST
DescriptionLinux Containers continue to gain momentum within data centers all over the world.
They are able to benefit legacy infrastructures by leveraging the lower overhead compared
to traditional, hypervisor-based virtualization. But there is more to Linux Containers,
which this workshop will explore. Their portability, reproducibility and distribution
capabilities outclass all prior technologies and disrupt former monolithic architectures,
due to sub-second life cycles and self service provisioning.

This workshop will outline the current state of Linux Containers, what challenges
are hindering the adoption in HPC/BigData and how containers can foster
improvements when applied to the field of HPC, Big Data and AI in the mid- and long-term.
By dissecting the different layers within the container ecosystem (runtime, supervision, engine, orchestration, distribution, security, scalability) this workshop will provide a holistic and a state-of-the-container overview, so that participants can make informed discussions on how to start, improve or continue their container adoption.
