Singularity is an open source container platform designed to be simple, fast, and secure. Singularity is optimized for compute focused enterprise and HPC workloads, allowing untrusted users to run untrusted containers in a trusted way.
System administrators can learn how to configure Singularity, and get an overview of its architecture and security features in the administrator guide.
For users, see the user guide for details on how to use and build Singularity containers.
Community contributions are always greatly appreciated. To start developing Singularity, check out the guidelines for contributing.
