TECH: Containers in Research: Initial Experiences with Lightweight Infrastructure

Linux containers have garnered a considerable amount of interest in a very short amount of time. Docker, in par- ticular, has captured a lot of this momentum – and is of- ten viewed as the de-facto standard for lightweight software deployment. Containerized applications can be quickly deployed, providing a virtual software environment (as op- posed to a more traditional virtual machine) with little to no performance overhead. 
We believe Docker, and the modern trend toward containers and microservices it epitomizes, can provide a significant technological advantage for service deployment in an HPC environment. We present several use cases for containers, ranging from simple web application delivery to prototype compute cluster environments. Finally, we share our initial performance results, and our upcoming plans for container development at our site.
