Singularity is a lightweight, non-invasive, easily implementable container infrastructure that supports existing workflows and focuses on application portability and mobility. With Singularity you can build containers based on your host or predefined operating system and define the execution environment. Processes inside the container can be single binaries or a group of binaries, scripts, and data.
