Container support

ABCI Supports two container technologies

  • Docker: having a large user community.
  • Singularity: developed by Laurence Berkeley National Laboratory and recently accepted by HPC community.

Container-Based Software Ecosystem

  • Enables users to instantly try state-of-the-art software developed in the global communities.
  • Publicize Software developed on ABCI to the global communities.

AIST provides container images optimized on ABCI.

  • Development: various single-node to distributed deep learning framework container images optimized with ChainerMN and NNabla, etc.
  • Provisioning: container images developed on ABCI may be deployed at large scale deep learning systems.
