Singularity is an open-source container engine designed to bring operating system-level virtualization (containerization) to scientific and high-performance computing. With Singularity you can package complex scientific workflows --- software applications, libraries, and data --- in a simple, portable, and reproducible way, which can then be run almost anywhere. Once you’ve created your container, you can run it on the workstation in your lab, on a virtual machine in the public cloud, or on hundreds of thousands of compute cores on the world’s largest supercomputers. Singularity is all about the mobility of compute.

In this webinar, we’ll provide an overview of Singularity and how you might incorporate the use of containers in your own research. We’ll also show you how to access and use some of the containerized applications that we make available to users on XSEDE systems like Comet and Expanse at SDSC.
