Shifter - Containers for HPC

Shifter enables container images for HPC. In a nutshell, Shifter allows an HPC system to efficiently and safely allow end-users to run a docker image. Shifter consists of a few moving parts 1) a utility that typically runs on the compute node that creates the run time environment for the application 2) an image gateway service that pulls images from a registry and repacks it in a format suitable for the HPC system (typically squashfs) 3) and example scripts/plugins to integrate Shifter with various batch scheduler systems.

Release Cycle

Shifter should be considered to be pre-release. Milestone tags will be labelled like YYYY.MM.vv (i.e. 2015.12.00) where vv is a minor release incremented with each snapshot generated. We plan to release new major versions biannually with point releases as required.
