Containerized software

  • What is Singularity?

    In a nut shell, Singularity allows users to run containers (Including docker containers) but restricts them to user space. 

    Documentation on singularity is located here.

    OSU EECS linux systems have this available at: /usr/local/apps/bin/singularity
