About Apptainer
As Docker brought containers into enterprise, Apptainer (formerly Singularity) brought containers into HPC with a containerization strategy that just works for HPC architectures, security models, and use cases.

Now Singularity is part of the Linux Foundation and re-released under a new name for the open source project, Apptainer.

Application Containers:
While many container systems are built, designed, and optimized for microservices, Apptainer is for applications and computational use cases.

Portable Jobs and Environments:
Apptainer allows you to bring your environments anywhere, creating extreme portability from system to system.

Trusted supply chain / Immutable / Encrypted:
Absolute trust in your environment via cryptographic key validation and encryption.
Apptainer was created to bring the benefits of container computing to HPC use cases and system architectures.

Apptainer is used pervasively throughout HPC centers as well as other community projects and even commercial vendors. The Apptainer founder and leading developers are all part of CIQ, and we provide enhanced capabilities to customers and partners.
