Recent developments in the commercial open source community have catalysed the use of Linux containers for scalable deployment of web-based applications to the cloud. Scientific software can be containerized with dependencies, configuration files, post-processing tools and even simulation results, referred to as containerized computing. This new approach promises to significantly improve sustainability, productivity and reproducibility. We present our experiences, technology, and future plans… 

Container Orchestration on HPC Clusters

A method to grow Kubernetes clusters onto transient nodes allocated through the Grid Engine batch workload manager is proposed, being used to run a mix of data-intensive service applications and bursty HPC-style workflows on an OpenStack-based Kubernets deployment, while keeping a homogeneous job management, logging, monitoring, and storage infrastructure.

Use of Docker for deployment and testing of astronomy software

KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE WITHIN THE PARTICLE ACCELERATOR COMMUNITY VIA CLOUD COMPUTING*

The combination of intuitive browserbased GUIs and Sirepo's server-side application container technology enables simplified computational archiving and reproducibility, which could become an important asset for the design, commissioning and future upgrade of particle accelerator and Xray beamline facilities.

Cloud-based design of high average power traveling wave linacs

The design of industrial high average power traveling wave linacs must accurately consider some specific effects. For example, acceleration of high current beam reduces power flow in the accelerating

Research method in AI

A survey design for evaluating documentation of published papers, an evaluation of two leading AI conference series, and suggested incentives to facilitate the reproducibility of AI research are suggested.
