CIQ Innovating Infrastructure

ROCKY ENTERPRISE LINUX

Singularity is now APPTAINER

Application Based Containers

Gregory Kurtzer founded and led the Singularity project, from its inception, to ensure that the open source project is a stable container platform for all HPC use-cases.

Taking the project to the next level of maturity, Kurtzer renamed the official project to “Apptainer” and brought it into the Linux Foundation to cross pollinate capabilities from the enterprise container and orchestration communities (OCI and CNCF) and bring these features into HPC.

CIQ provides support, seamless transition, and services for the Apptainer and legacy Singularity projects, directly from the founder and leading feature developers and committers to the projects.

CIQ SINGULARITY SUPPORT

APPTAINER

Apptainer is a community-driven container solution designed for HPC, AI, ML & performance-critical batch processing.

HPC

We designed Apptainer for HPC batch workloads because existing container systems fell short or were not compatible in these environments.

Secure

Single file, cryptographically signed container images, guaranteeing trust and encrypted data protection.

Optimized

Designed for application performance rather than micro-services, Apptainer integrates with the underlying host resources instead of being isolated from them.

Trusted

100% trust and validation of containerized workloads, providing accountability, immutability, provenance, and DevSecOps guarantees.

Easy

Integrates with existing PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) or leverage our community driven HKP keystore.

Protected

Encryption of container image and integration with secrets management systems (eg., Hashicorp's Vault) to protect the data, IP, AI models, and workload during storage, transport, and execution of containers.
