HPC and containers

Source: ZDnet
30 Dec 2015 Espoo - Olli-Pekka Lehto is pretty busy with writing about HPC these days. Apart from his predictions for 2016 he also wrote a blog "Containers, meet HPC" on Medium giving a nice overview of what containers could do and cannot do for HPC. His conclusion: "Containers offer a lot of potential in complementing bare metal computing environments and Virtual Machines and will almost certainly establish a strong standing in HPC in the next couple of years. However, there is still a lot of work to do and potential caveats."
