Focus Session: Containers for Acceleration and Accessibility in HPC and Cloud Ecosystems
Event TypeFocus Session
TimeMonday, June 17th4pm - 5pm
Applications portability, scientific reproducibility and users productivity are among key challenges facing scientific communities on rapidly evolving hardware and software ecosystems, especially for workflows utilising distributed IT infrastructure encompassing public and private cloud deployments and supercomputing centres. Container technologies have demonstrated not only a widespread adoption among data science communities in cloud environments but also unique problem-solving opportunities for performance-sensitive, scalable applications in modelling and simulation domains on supercomputing platforms. This session brings together experts to share insights on transitioning to container technologies, and to forecast opportunities and challenges for a federated IT environment comprising HPC and cloud infrastructure elements.
