Singularity

Container is an executable environment that package up pieces of software in a way it is portable and reproducible. You can build a container on your personal laptop, copy it to the high-performance cluster (like MOGON 2) and execute it there. The next day you may decide to run the same container at another computational facility. Instead of compiling a code for some different cluster environment (different modules, different filesystems, etc.) from scratch, you just take the same container you've created the other day on your laptop. That is cool, isn't it? 8-)
