Abstract:
Containers simplify application deployments in the data centers by wrapping applications into an isolated virtual environment. By including all application dependencies like binaries and libraries, application containers run seamlessly in any data center environment. The HPC application containers available on NVIDIA GPU Cloud (NGC) dramatically improve ease of application deployment while delivering optimized performance. However, if the desired application is not available on NGC, building HPC containers from scratch trades one set of challenges for another. Parts of the software environment typically provided by the HPC data center must be redeployed inside the container. For those used to just loading the relevant environment modules, installing a compiler, MPI library, CUDA, and other core HPC components from scratch may be daunting. HPC Container Maker (HPCCM) [1] is an open-source project that addresses the challenges of creating HPC application containers. HPCCM encapsulates into modular building blocks the best practices of deploying core HPC components with container best practices, to reduce container development effort, minimize image size, and take advantage of image layering. HPCCM makes it easier to create HPC application containers by separating the choice of what should go into a container image from the specification details of how to configure, build, and install a component. This separation also enables the best practices of HPC component deployment to transparently evolve over time.
