Abstract: Experts argue that the resource demands of High Performance Computing (HPC) clusters request bare-metal installations. The performance loss of container virtualization is minimal and close to bare-metal, but in comparison has many advantages, like ease of provisioning. This paper presents the use of the newly adopted container technology and its multiple conceptional advantages for HPC, compared to traditional bare-metal installations or the use of VMs. The setup based on Docker (Docker, 2015) shows a possible use in private HPC sites or public clouds as well. The paper ends with a performance comparison of a FEA job run both bare-metal and using Docker and a detailed risk analysis of Docker installations in a multi-tenant environment, as HPC sites usually are.
