Hi, I am Furuhata a.k.a “shimo”.
A type of container environment, Singularity, is installed on the Lab’s servers.
(I spent the whole golden week (the long vacation in Japan) for it.)
Singularity is often compared to The “BLUE WHALE”.
The reason our lab chose the Singularity instead of docker is that Singularity can be ran without root permission.
Also, since Singularity is the container designed for HPC, we can actually use it in the supercomputer systems.
I strongly hope that Singularity could enhance labmate’s productivity and manage servers easier.
