Executive Summary: A community member needs to use a container image on a resource in order to create the runtime environment needed for their work.
About two weeks (0.05 FTE) to compile, review, and publish XSEDE specific user documentation. We assume that container providers document and support their containers which XSEDE shouldn't duplicate.
|Component||User facing?||Component’s role in the capability|
|Service Provider Batch Processing Services||yes||Enables a community member to submit a batch job that runs the container on a compute node|
|XSEDE User Portal (XUP)||yes||Enables the community member to find: 1) cloud resources that could run VMs that support containers (https://portal.xsede.org/resource-monitor), and 2) user documentation on using containers on XSEDE|
